Anyone have some posters that they use in their room for similes and metaphors. I'm also looking for creative ways to teach them. Thanks!

Can't recall off the top of my head, but I've seen in some teacher catalogs some great posters for similies and metaphors. They don't appear in my standards, so I didn't need to purchase them for myself. Try: Trend, Carson Delosa, Lakeshore. Wish I could be of more help.

My class just made simile people. After introducing similes, the students are given an organizer with a person on it and 9 blanks for similes. On the back, I ran some similes to get their minds going. Their assignment was to create their own simile person (or creature) and draw it on large construction paper and then label with the similes that are appropriate. So we ended up with very odd looking critters/people with similes like "a nose as pointy as a pencil". The kids have a blast with it and it helps them remember that similes are a comparison that uses like or as, since they have had to create these.

I think many of us would be interested in a visual for this. Many thanks if you can post it.

I wish I had this for you, but it isn't on my computer. To help with the visual....

it is simply a gingerbread man type outline with lines near various body parts as blanks to write on. ie: lines off the face for the nose, ears, eyes, etc.
Even a stick figure would work. The point is that they have somewhere to jot down their similes before they create the person/character.

I LOVE these posters!!! Amazing job! There is just one little mistake I found. On the "imagery" poster it says "metal" instead of "mental". I would have fixed it on mine but the program won't let me edit it. If you could post a fixed copy of it I would appreciate it soo much! Thank you soooo much for posting them! It really helps out!

I use the song, "Firework," by Katy Perry to teach similes. The kids love it!
