Book of the Week [plus freebie!]

Book Title: Quick as a Cricket
Author: Audrey Wood
Goals: similes, descriptive words

Whenever I do a unit on similes I always use this book. I also create a class book to go along with this unit. Each student writes a simile about themselves, for example:"I am as funny as a clown" or "I am as pretty like a butterfly." Unfortunately, my class books are in my classroom so I can't show you an example. The students have a lot of fun with this activity and it really helps them understand what a simile is. I have included a template for you to create your own book!
