A snowflake is like a feather/ Comparison Poems @ Moos

Last week, we had fun exploring comparison poems and similes! We shared some of our favorite lines from a round of comparison poems that used similes (comparisons using “like” or “as”) and talked about how two very different things can have something in common: “A butterfly is like a colorful rainbow” … “Thunder is like bowling”… “A person’s whisper is like a soft pillow.” Then, we worked together to write a comparison poem together as a group before taking time to write comparison poems on our own. Enjoy our published poems from week 3!

Each week there will be 3 poems from each class published to our Hands on Stanzas blog, and every student will have an opportunity to see their written work published on our blog in the weeks to come.

Scroll down to enjoy this week’s published poems!

Comparison Poem
Syncere S.

A light is like a sunrise
A gorilla is like a drum
High heels are like a suitcase falling
A tiger is like a rainstorm
A feather is like a leaf falling
Rain is like water dripping
Skunks are like a sewer
Stomping is like clapping
A mountain is like a tall house
Shaving cream is like snow
Fluffy slime is like a cloud
A cloud is like cotton candy



Comparison Poem
Dereonna R.

A yellow ball is like a bouncing sun
A high heel is like the rain going click-clack
Juice is like a colorful rainbow
Rain is like kids’ tears
A butterfly is like a flying piece of paper



Comparison Poem
Jovonni G.

A boat is like a duck in the water
The cloud is like cotton candy
Fire is like the sun
A bus is like a banana
Bees are like peas
A flower is like a shower head



Ms. Sanders
3rd Grade



Comparison Poem
Gio R.

A dog’s bark is like the sound of the wind
A doorbell is like the sound of a shower
A bouncing ball is like a frog’s ribbit
The sound of a moving desk is like people’s voices
Singing is like animals talking
A quiet library is like the ocean
A phone ringing is like a door opening and closing



Comparison Poem
Keira L.

Hair spray is like tape
A cloud is like cotton candy
The sky is like the pool
When I read it’s like a movie
A lamp is like a sunrise
Getting stung by a bee is like a pencil hitting you


Comparison Poem
Jon A.

3rd grade is like a traffic jam
Chocolate ice cream is like frozen chocolate
A spider is like a chameleon
