The other day, the kids had to tell the rest of the class a non-fiction story that happened to them. I told them that to make the story more exciting I wanted them to use some simile's and metaphores. Kiante (4th grade) had this story to tell:
It was the day after Halloween and I was getting ready for school. I put some candy in my backpack to take with me and then I got in the shower. When I got out of the shower and went back to my room, I saw my mom trying to get some candy out of my back pack. She was like a racoon digging in a trash can.
I love it!
