We have been working on similes in 2nd grade FOCUS and here is what some of my students feel about boys:
A boy is as tall as a skyscraper
A Boy is as smart as Einstein
A Boy is as quiet as a mouse.
A boy is as nice as a neighbor.
( I also have to share that another example for this was A boy is as nice as a senior citizen)
A boy is crazy as a monkey.
A boy is as awesome as a rockstar.
A boy is as mean as a badger.
Tomorrow we tackle girls so we will see how it goes.
