Simile class slides

  1. 1. I am hungry as a horse. You run like a rabbit. She is happy as a clam. He is sneaky as a snake.
  2. 2. Famous simile poem:• “Twinkle, twinkle little star,• How I wonder what you are• Up above the world so high,• Like a diamond in the sky.”• -> how do you know that this is a simile?
  3. 3. Greater Than That (can you spot the similes?)“Peering through the drape I’m pacin’ and dyin’Of my synthetic cell, In a manmade den.How I long to escape For an eagle was not meantThis manufactured hell. To be locked in a cage,Like a bruised, little bird Its life to be spentToo confused to fly, Like a picture on a page.I’m trapped, in a word, And when a mighty lion,So confined am I. In truth, is but a cat,A captive, collared lion It will spend its time tryin’Alone in its pen, To be greater than that.”
