Music is Like a Breeze in the Trees: Comparisons @ Moos Elementary

This week students learned about comparisons, and specifically similes. The 3rd graders made the astute observation that a simile is interesting because the two things being compared a different enough to make you stop and think. We then used similes to write original poems. Enjoy!
