"No Air" by Jordin Sparks featuring Chris Brown (Cross-Posted from teaching blog)



Today, first grade students watched the video for "No Air," a duet between Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown.

"No Air" uses metaphors and similes to talk about how difficult it is to be apart from someone you love.
Definitions:

A metaphor is a way of describing something by comparing it with something else that has some of the same qualities.

  • Example: He is so tall! He's a giant.

A simile is a phrase that compares two things, using the words "like" or "as."

  • Example: The test room was as silent as a graveyard.
You can watch the video for "No Air" again on Youtube here.
