Comparison Poems 3rd & 4th Grade @ Avondale Logandale Fall 2019

During the 3rd week of the Chicago Poetry residency, youth were encouraged to find similarities between different things. This encouraged creativity and to recognize what people and things might have in common. These are some of the poems from the week of studying comparisons.

Comparison Poems

Yanny O. 

My bed is like a fluffy sheep

glue is sticky like syrup

a bird tweeting is like a song

a marker is like a magical wand

a field trip is like exploring the world


Megan T. 

A cloud is like snow in winter

Trees in a forest are like broccoli for lunch

The earth is like a tiny marble

The universe is like a wet canvas

The school is like the great big book

All the people screaming is like a bolt of lightening

Singing is like a frog croaking

My family is like the inside of me


Alexander R. 

A black cat is like dark midnight

The blue sky is like water

My birthday is like a holiday

A project is like a picture

Winning is like a prize

A book is like knowledge

A Tree is like grass

A dragon is like a bird
