Similes and Idioms

Similes and Idioms

Similes and idioms are two examples of figurative language your child may encounter in their reading. In a simile, two unlike things are compared using the words "like" or "as." Idioms are phrases with non-literal meanings. Offer examples of each, then challenge your child to decipher their meaning. Once you "let the cat out of the bag," your child will find that it's "as easy as A-B-C" to identify and write their own.

The editing process is critical — but many young writers resist it. Offer your child correction practice with example paragraphs and specific things to look for. Teach your child editing marks and provide them with checklists as they review their work. Remind them that the process of editing is a positive thing because it makes their work even better.
