    Watching the others, I knew I was in trouble. ___

    They opened the door and I started my life. _C_

    Frosting me with a silver knife, ___

    Decorating me with candy jewels. ___

    The rest of my batch looked like fools. ___

    Lifting me up, she took off my wrapper. _E_

    Feeling the breeze, I wanted to slap her. ___ Watch this cupcake! 

    Opening her mouth with shiny teeth inside, ___

    This was the day this cupcake died. __ Source: https://www.familyfriendpoems.com/poem/the-life-of-a-cupcake

    Watch , Sing and Write 

    This video uses Lenka’s song “Everything at Once”

    which is full of similes. Lenka describes many character traits

    that she wishes to have, including shyness, strength, quickness,

    and bravery, by using animals or objects that symbolize those traits.

    Poetry Tools - 2) What is a Simile?

    A simile is when two things are compared using LIKE or AS. The two things that are compared are not usually

    similar. Similes are important tools that make language more creative, descriptive, and entertaining.

    Examples:

    My sister is as sweet as a pie.

    John eats like a pig.

    Now you try :

    1. He is ___________ a brother to me. He helps me with everything.

    2. My little kitten is _____ cute _____ a teddy bear!

    3. Planet Mars is _____ red _____ my favourite red t-shirt.

    4. After the tiring day, I slept _________ an angel.

    LISTEN AND WRITE SOME SIMILES

    FROM THE SONG

    COMPARE THESE WITH ‘LIKE’ OR ‘AS’

    1. MY DOG / SMELLY SOCKS

    ____________________________

    2. RUN / LIGHTNING
