Category Archives: Similies

Similies are like a neverending glistening canyon of words and letters…

In their last task, Stanford Juniors created and described their own alien using similes. You can see them here.

Well Ross was mega impressed with the creativity of his class that he’s just cranked the task up a notch…

Have a look at the similies you came up with for the last challenge.

Today I’d like you to improve them by adding verbs for example:

His eyes were as dark as coal.

You could say ‘His eyes glimmered like coal’

OR

‘His eyes nestled in his head like lumps of coal’

OR

‘His eyes were crushed tight like a handful of coal’

Well those clever people at Stanford Juniors proved themselves to be not just great artists, but brilliant writers too! Take a look at their new similes below…

Let us know which is your favourite one, ours is “His eyes shimmered like a gold coin searching through the darkness of a pocket”…WOW! Well done everyone!
