Are you feeling the stress and insanity of the end of the year yet? I know I am! Today's post is a little idea for writing that you could use to review figurative language, character traits, AND you can send it home for Mother's Day.

You may want to provide a list of possible character traits to help them brainstorm. Once students have their list, get them to think about what jobs, animals, or objects also show those traits.
I modeled the same pattern in each line so the only part they have to think about is the simile.
