Similes that Sizzle

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We have been working on creating some really interesting and unusual similes, ones that put pictures in your head.  The children were given lists of nouns and verbs and asked to use them to create these similes.  Have a look at some of the ones they’ve come up with:

A tower fell like leaves into a handbag… Dean

The mirror slept as quietly as a mouse…  Sunny

The baby raindrop cascaded down the rainbow as bright as sunlight… Mini

The apple cascaded off the tree like a falling leaf… Annika

A smile giggled like sunlight… Ella

The mirror looked like a sparkling star… Aiden

The apple smiled like giggling sawdust… Xintong

The raindrop smashed like a racing car… Tilly

The spoon giggled like water… TJ

The apples rolled down the rainbow like a race car…  Zara

Can you think of some other sizzling similes?  Add them in the comments.

    Dear Mrs W,
    Writing similes was fun and most of them were funny!
