This Simile and Metaphor Brochure is the perfect way to help your students practice finding and identifying similes and metaphors while they are reading picture books.
This easy print and go brochure has a simple format that the students understand and can complete independently.
It also helps students set the purpose for reading by getting them to think about similes and metaphors as they read. They will walk away with 5 pictures books completed and a collection of similes and metaphors to add to their vocabulary and writing. Score!
Here’s what is the students will do in this incredible brochure:
-Write their own definition of what a simile and a metaphor is
-Write examples of similes and metaphors that they know
-Refer to a list of “Questions to Consider” when thinking about similes and metaphors
-Read 5 picture books and collect similes and metaphors from each book, write the meaning of the simile and metaphor, write a sentence without the simile or metaphor and decide whether the simile or metaphor made the story better or not.

A little about why we created this brochure and why we love to share it with amazing teachers like you!:
We don’t believe that every time you read, you need to do an activity, but sometimes our students need more ways to practice the standards we are working on. Our students read a lot, so we decided to create these brochures to give them that opportunity to practice while reading. Why not hit two birds with one stone, right?
