  • 4 good similes to use in class. However, there is a spelling error in the poster. He was a as cunning as a fox.

  • Could you do a similar version of this resource for other 'writer's craft' techniques such as onomatopoeia or hyperbole? Alternatively, can you point me to a set of posters that contains those and similes, metaphors and personification?

  • This is a lovely, colourful resource, but it would be even better if the similes were full sentences rather than just phrases. For example, 'He was as busy as a bee.'

This colourful poster is the perfect writing aid for when your little ones are learning to write using similes. Stick around your classroom and use as a discussion prompt or as an independent writing aid.
