Product Description

When I did my student teaching in 1987, I was introduced to Hailstones and Halibut Bones by Mary O’Neil.  It became a must have for my classroom.  Later as I struggled to find ways to teach metaphor and simile to my students, I returned to that book for inspiration. 

I discovered as I taught students that fourth, fifth and sixth grade students easily wrote similes, but writing metaphors was more difficult.  Working at a more abstract level takes time and practice.  My advice to the beginning teacher is not to rush the writing part, but keep helping students use their natural imaginations to make unusual connection.

I have built upon an idea that I first read in Writing Better Lyrics by Pat Patison.  I use a metaphor for the color as the main idea and use similes as the supporting details.

Included are some patterns for writing poems about color using metaphors and similes.  I have included several examples that I have written.
