    I did a simile lesson for my 4th grade class using this song - I had a parent in the room that day and she absolutely LOVED it - almost as much as the kids did! (There are worksheets with the lyrics and the simile lesson online in various places) The Grinch Song from the cartoon How The Grinch Stole Christmas - loads of adjectives and similes in this song. 2:59

    Great short movies to use in teaching, plus lesson ideas!

    I've used this song with my students. It has over 30 similes. I did three activities with it. Allowed them to first just listen to it with the lyrics showing on YouTube. Next, I told them to write as many as they could in their journals while listening to the song. I allowed the kids to pick one of the similes in the song and do an illustration (with help from art teacher). I am going to make a video with their pics using the song! The video is complete! Great idea! already have the song

    This is a short video with several different clips form movies that give examples of similes. This is very effective because the movies used are popular in our age group therefore making students have more interest in watching it.

    What a cute idea - this also links to a lesson about finding similes and metaphors in the "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" song. Can't wait to do this!
