Title: Fairy Tales as Metaphors


1
Metaphors in Fairy Tales
2
Reminder Definition of metaphor
  • A metaphor is a writing strategy
  • In a metaphor, something represents something it
    would not usually represent
  • Metaphors DO NOT use the words like or as,
    similes DO use those words

3
Metaphor skills check
  • Which of these is a metaphor? (Please raise your
    hand when you know the answer, do not blurt it
    out.)
  • The goalkeeper was as steady as a rock.
  • My brother is a pig
  • The phone rang as a dog barked outside.
  • It was as easy as taking candy from a baby.

4
A new kind of metaphor
  • We have been talking about and using metaphors at
    the sentence level
  • Now we are going to look at metaphors at a story
    level
  • Objects or characters represent something in
    certain situations in real life
  • These representations usually have a specific
    message or lesson to tell

5
For example
  • Once upon a time there was a pig who ate and ate
    and ate and he never exercised. One day he wanted
    to climb a hill to buy a pizza. But he got tired
    halfway up the hill. He had to stop and rest. By
    the time he got to the pizza place, it was closed.
  • My uncle is a pig.

6
Metaphors in The Three Little Pigs
  • House of sticks/straw
  • House of brick
  • Wolf
  • Overall message

7
Your metaphor mission
  • Fill out the heading on your worksheet with both
    partners names.
  • Write Metaphors in Your story as your title.
  • Read your story together.
  • Discuss the story with your group.
  • Take turns writing your answers on your
    worksheet.
  • You will turn in ONE worksheet for your group.
  • As a group
  • Pick out three characters, objects or events in
    the story.
  • Identify what they could stand for (like we did
    for the Three Little Pigs)
  • Write down the message that they tell
  • Stack your groups papers and put the pile at the
    front of your table.
  • Take out your copy of Briar Rose.
