Using like or as to compare two things that are not really alike (wise as an owl, busy as a bee
lines- a repeated line throughout a story
(There was an old lady who swallowed a …)
First Impressions- books that start with a problem, dialogue or conversation, simple statement or fact, a question, an action , a sound
Voice- Characters have a voice and give great meaning to the story

Personification- when writers write about an object as if it were a person , they add human qualities to an inanimate object (The Tortoise and the Hare)
Dialogue- when characters are talking in a story
Onomatopoeia- when the writer uses sound words (oink, bang)
