My advanced class wrote a persuasive letter this past Friday to the principal urging him not to allow fast food options in the cafeteria. The letter needed to contain an example of figurative language. Not all the students remembered, but I had a few zingers that made me laugh out loud- literally! So, I thought I would share a few. Enjoy!
Due to eating fast food, students lounge around all day long like fat cats in comfy chairs.
Fast food is like a shark attack: it's a bad thing in this world.
Students lounge around all day like a fat man who drank too much milk.
Fast food is like getting hit by a subway train: it's bad news.
Fast food hurts you like a serial killer.
Fast food causes your heart rate to shoot up as fast as a cheetah runs!
Fast food is like one big death trap!
Side note: I am convinced--no fast food this week. :-)

Students' Similes: LOL!
I'm a passionate middle grades teacher, and currently teaching 5th grade, I love all content areas because I enjoy learning, but my heart lies in ELA/Reading. I began this blog as a reflection tool, but my hope is that others might learn from my insights. Always know that with education, there will be different viewpoints. I may be passionate about my viewpoint, but I'd also love to know yours, too! Thank you for visiting, and wishing you all the best in your educational quest for ideas.
