CMS sixth-graders learn about alliterations, similes

Campbellsville Middle School sixth-graders are learning about literal and figurative language.

 

In Andrea Gribbins’s language arts and reading class, students have been discussing how they can use different types of language in their writing.

 

Gribbins discussed the use of real vs. imaginary writing, and how students can use hyperboles, metaphors, similes, personification, onomatopoeia and alliterations to make their writing more colorful, descriptive and interesting.

 

To test how they use alliterations and similes, Gribbins gave her students some sweet and tart candies.

 

After enjoying their candies, students were asked to use alliterations and similes to write sentences describing how their candies look, smell, feel and taste.
