A simple, free, resource to introduce simile in creative writing.
This is a very simple simile introduction in which students sing a song which uses lots of the target structure. This could be enhanced by turning the song into a gap-fill activity by finding the lyrics online.
Once the students have sung the song, they are given the definition of a simile with some examples. They look at the sentence structure and make their own with the examples, before finally moving on to making their own without examples.
The PPT has been tried and tested in the classroom and has proven to be a very effective way of making the students remember the structure.
