    Similes              Metaphors               Alliteration

           Hyperbole             Personification

  1. Dear 5RK,
    I would like to share some examples of personification:
    The chair squeaked in the dark
    The walls felt lethargic after holding up the roof for many hours
    The dog demanded for his food
    I would also like to add that I love the Figurative Language topic and I will always use it in writing pieces.

  2. Dear 5RK,
    I have enjoyed learning about figurative language. Here are some examples of personification:
    The wind howled in the dark,
    The sun woke up from its sleep,
    The clouds swam over us,
    The trees whispered in the wind,
    The tiles screamed as the water washed over them.
    I would like to say that personification is my favourite type of figurative language.

  5. Hello world,
    I have learnt a lot about figurative language this year these are some similes:
    They were like a pack of wolves fighting over a scrap of meat.
    I know it like the back of my hand.
    As quiet as an ant.
    As sharp as a knife.
    As cold as ice.
    As hot as the sun.
    He was like he had seen a ghost
    The grass was like a carpet.
