KS2 simile poem

Discussion in 'English' started by Tacey, Jul 10, 2007.

  1. I have an interview coming up and I have decided to teach my lesson on similes. It's for a year 3/4 class.

    I've been having a look around for a good quality example of a short poem using similes. I've found quite a lot of very serious examples, but I was hoping for something a little lighter. Does anyone have any ideas?

  3. how about 'Imagine' by Roland Egan?

    it goes like this:

    Imagine a snail
    As big as a whale,
    Imagine a lark
    As big as a shark,
    Imagine a bee
    As big as a tree,
    Imagine a toad
    As long as a road,
    Imagine a hare
    As big as a cahir,
    Imagine a goat
    As long as a boat

    And a flea the same size as me.

    I've always had success with this one?
     
  4. sorry, should read

    As big as a chair

    my typing gets worse and worse!
     
  5. Thank you - that's great! Really clear and simple. I can stop searching my poetry books now!
     
  6. you're welcome, good luck!
