In Reading we have been learning to:  identify and describe the effects of Figurative language choices in texts.
We can: Identify, define and explain why an author might use ‘Personification’

Personification = The act of giving human traits, qualities, or actions to objects, concepts or animals.

* People use personification in their writing to make it come alive!

Below is a song about Personification that we practiced as a class.

Here is an example of Personification used in a movie – Beauty and Beast.

Below is an example of Personification used Poetry  – The Ocean

The ocean tickled my feet. The waves ran across the shore. It wrapped around me and gave me a hug. The ocean sang while it crashed on the shore. It danced through the rocks


We all had a go using personification in our Writing.

We underlined the idea, object or animal being personified and circled what they are doing that makes it an example of personification.

E.g. The Sun danced across the sky on a hot summers day

E.g. The Rain gently kissed me on the cheek as I walked home from school.

We did such a good job we published our work and put it on display outside our classroom for others to see. Below are some pictures of our display. Come by room 8 to have a look at our great work! 🙂
