We had a "Grinch Day" and we got to make our very own Grinch! My student's LOVED it. Thank you Glyph Girls for such a FABULOUS idea!
Then I had the kids write similes comparing the Grinch and his heart to different things using the prompt, “The Grinch was as __________ as _________. His heart was as _________ as _________.” They had to choose adjectives from our brainstorm charts and make up their own similes. They LOVED this activity!!
