Figurative Language

Similes, metaphors and personifications are some examples of figurative language which liven up your writing and create a picture in the reader's mind. This video will help you remember them so that you can start using figures of speech in your future pieces of writing. Hope you enjoy it!

It seems funny but can help us to write better and to choose good similes, metaphors and personifications.

It is a very funny video but it helps alot !! It is very well explained and the tune is "sticky" I would like it to have words so you don´t have to try to find out where the words are.

Keep posting,

Ms. Ale, the song was very funny, and it was to go over and refresh what is a SIMILIE, A METAPHOR AND A PERSONIFICCATION. I also learned what is a HYPERBOLE!

What a good song!!!
I did not know that we had to sing and I didn't understand why it said diddle oh, or something like that.
Then I realized it was to sing!! I was here with my brothers and we started singing it!!!
We knew the rythm because it is the one of supercalifragilisticoespialidoso
and we saw the movie "Mary Poppins" and last year we learn it with Miss Lili at music.And wwe started singing with all the words, it was kind of difficult to sing it but I enjoyed it with my brothers.
Thanks for posting it.
