Playing With Metaphors and Similies

15 Sep

Welcome to Monday’s Muse! Every Monday morning of the school term in 2014, Write Away With Me posts an open ended writing and/or storytelling activity that you can try with your class or your children at home.

This writing activity explores how a few well chosen words can create metaphors, similes and vivid imagery. Life is our muse, our inspiration. What imagery could we use to describe life and living? Below is a slideshow presentation brought to you from by Senior group at Parkdale – 2013. Writing like this, always makes my heart sing. This might just be the perfect way to end a writing term. There is much scope for creative thinking, writing and philosophical discussion here. I used SlideShare to create and share this powerpoint. It’s easy to use and share with others – classmates, parents and the wider school community. Enjoy!

After 25 years teaching experience, from Early Childhood to VCE, Beth Cregan combined her passion for books, writing and storytelling to launch ‘Write Away With Me’.
