Similes are hard so we are still keeping at it and trying to practice. After splitting into three groups (Team Purple Flower, Team LilyNicole, and Team Alxa) the poets created a master list of smilies racing to see which group could create the most amount of smilies. Below is the poem from the winner of our speed-round (and only by a hair- 2 more smilies than all the other teams!) Congrats to Team Purple Flower.

A rainbow is as colorful as a kite.
Friends are as inseparable as glue.
Miss Christie is as beautiful as a flower.
A computer is as knowledgeable as a governor.
An octopus has as many legs as a spider.
An elephant is as big as an airplane.
This char is as hard as a rock.
The smart board is as smart as a mathematician.
The light is bright like the sun.
A carpet is as soft as a fluffy dog.
Space is as large as one million schools.
The sky is as blue as the ocean.
Earrings are as shiny as a diamond.
Candy is sticky like slime.
Our love is as strong as 100 men.
Hair is as silky as a spider web.
