Figures of Speech

Today my class and I were learning about figures of speech, we came across a lot of new words like personification, simile, metaphor, hyperbole and many more.

The meaning of personification is when a non-living thing is doing a human quality like for example, the trees were waving to me in a distance , the word simile means when comparing 2 things using the words like or as for example, Billy is fast like a cheetah.

Metaphor means like when comparing 2 things without using the words like or as, and hyperbole means when something is bigger than it really is like for example, I’m so hungry I could eat a horse.

I had so much fun learning about figures of speech and I also made a slide to describe to siblings  using similes, and here it is.
