    I had the students make simile posters about themselves. We did them as "Wanted" posters. I added a photo in the center of the Wanted Poster and then the kids had to write 5-7 similes about themselves. For example...I'm as fast as a cheetah, I'm as good as gold, etc.

    I also have posted a commercial set of figurative language posters. We have covered similes and metaphors so far. As students find examples in their reading they write the example on a post it along with the title and page number. I award money through my classroom economy for proper examples. I also offer money when they use them in their writing. We will soon be adding alliteration and personification.
