Metaphor and simile lesson plans can be a lot of fun. There's such an inherent creativity in them! The children's books below can help encourage children's creativity and provide clever 'real world' examples of how they enhance writing! Metaphors and similes are like a box of chocolates-- you never know what the students will come up with.
Once the creative juices start flowing, that is. Some students get stuck in the "I can't think of anything" mentality, so it's a good idea to start the writing activity by exposing kids to creative and fun examples. The children's books on this page are great for this. Once kids see some examples, they have a jumping off point for their own creations! We'd love to grow this list! If you have a favorite book that you use in metaphor and simile lesson plans, please take a minute to share it with us by clicking here.
