I found this cute poem from http://www.poetryteachers.com/ and thought it was adorable, so I made it look fun! This could be used as an introduction to similes. Put this on an overhead projector, read it to the kiddos and see if they can determine the pattern. Practice similes with them and then complete the "Simile Self-Portraits" activity by having them fill out the included sheet and then create their new self-portraits, based on the similes they use. Enjoy!
