Scrumptious Similes

Hello Everyone!
Welcome back for another post about ice cream! Yum!! Today we worked on similes again as we review some of our favorite things from the year.  We read a couple more ice cream books and then set out to brainstorm some similes using ice cream as our subject. I love some of the similes the kids came up with!! Then the kids had to pick out their favs or think of some more and record them on their own sheets. I then showed them how to make a great little ice cream cone book starting with a circle. I tried to take pics along the way to show you all, but you will probably have to do some experimenting if you want to make some!  On each page of the book, the kids had to write their six similes. I think they turned out great!!
