Similes and metaphors teaching pack

I have used this pack with several of my past and present pupils. There is a clear and easy to understand power point slide show which explains this topic. The work sheets are ideal as follow up activities. I would thoroughly recommend.

A wonderful learning resource!

I have now used this Pack for several years, in several different classes from ages seven to eleven, and it has never let me down!
The funny green monster does a great job of explaining similes and metaphors (often quite tricky to teach, especially metaphors). There is a very nice range of activities to accompany the Guide, especially the riddles, which are fun, and the picture prompts, which are really great for generating ideas. For students who are just beginning, there are sentence-uplevelling exercises. After having these new ideas introduced to them, my students had no difficulty in using the worksheets to create their own similes and metaphors.
All in all, an excellent set of learning resources!

Great mini pack with attractively illustrated guide

I have used this teaching pack with several of my Key stage 2 pupils. The power point clearly explains similes and metaphors using attractively illustrated slides. There are a selection of worksheets which encourage the children to write their own similes and metaphors. My pupils really enjoyed the poetry activity.
