Recently he had an exercise in school on similes, and I am so happy to report what the teacher said about it, "Great job, you really seem to understand what a simile is!" So I thought I'd share a few of them!
I feel as happy as a clown.
I feel as strong as a "strongman". (his word for muscleman)
I feel as silly as a unicorn.
I feel as angry as a beagle, it runs everywhere a lot when a person gets too close. (this is from the movie Fantastic Mr. Fox where there is a mad beagle who chases everyone!)
I feel as excited as a jumping bean. (teacher: great one!)
I feel as frightened as a fox. (again from Fantastic Mr. Fox)
I feel as light as a bread falling off a counter. (teacher: Wow! Thoughtful!)
I feel as grumpy as a cat. (we have an extremely grumpy cat!)
I feel as slow as a snail trying to catch food. (starred by teacher)
I feel as hungry as a bear. (starred by teacher)
I feel as sleepy as a sleeping dog.
Pretty insightful, don't you think?! What a great, awesome kid!
