SimiLes, use Like or aS, only way I ever remember... Does it have an L or S? than no it is not a simile, check metaphor. Indirect vs. direct comparison contests ensue.

Original Pin - Have students write their names on the side of a sheet of paper (first or both first and last). Then have them write one simile that describes them for each letter in their name. Kids can decorate them however they like and the acrostic simile poems can be hung above all student's desks for display. Great way to practice using similes! by lee
