Last week I read this book to my class to teach them about writing similes -- using figurative language to make their stories more interesting. Here are some of the results:
"My bid (brother) is as snecke (sneaky) as a snayck (snake.)
"My dad is shrong (strong) as a ox. He can pick up anything."
My sister is funny as a munce" (monkey.)
"My sister is lud (loud) as a lien (lion). But we don't cell (care) we put her in tamat" (time out).
"Memu (her grandma) is sweet as the Lorax. And a cotin (cotton) ball soft as a lamb"
"My dad is schong (strong) as a achinfiger (action figure).My mom is as sweet as a coockiey. (cookie)
and my favorite:
"My mom is as hot as fire."
