Here are some examples… As light as a feather
How do we use Similes? My mum is as busy as a bee. He is as brave as a lion. She slept like a log last night.

as fast as a hare
Or, you can also say… as fast as lightning
as brave as a bear
Or, you can also say… as brave as a soldier
as quiet as a mouse
Or, you can also say… as quiet as a falling leaf
as dark as the night
Or, you can also say… as dark as the dungeon
strong like a family
Or, you can also say… strong like a bull
As silly as Spongebob !
Once upon a time, there lived two good friends. One was called SpongeBob and the other was called Patrick.
SpongeBob has a body as yellow as banana and eyes as big as the moon ! as yellow as a banana as big as the moon
Patrick has a body as pink as a flamingo and a pointed head. as pink as a flamingo
“Hey, Patrick! Why don’t we go and collect some sea shells?” shouted SpongeBob as loud as a loudspeaker. as loud as a loudspeaker
“Why are you shouting in my ears? Hmmm, alright, let’s go look for some seashells.”
“That’s a secret”. SpongeBob whispered as softly as a cat this time. as softly as a cat
“I am as tired as a kid who just got back from school. as tired as a kid who just got back from school.
Can you tell me what we are going to do with these seashells now at least?”
“Alright, since you are as impatient as a hungry baby, I’ll tell you now. We are going to build a huge Ferrari car using these shells! as impatient as a hungry baby
“Bruum, bruum, bruum! I’m as excited as a puppy dog that I can’t wait to drive my car around!” as excited as a puppy dog
Patrick looked a little confused. “A ferrari car? How are you going to drive the car in here? Cars don’t run underwater…”
“Alright, let’s throw these seashells away and go get some rest now.”
“GOODNESS, GRACIOUS, ME! You are so silly,SpongeBob, as silly as a clown!” as silly as a clown !”
