Pants
by Mordecai Gerstein

We go everywhere
together.
You carry my treasures
for me.

When I find grass
on your knees and
sand in your pockets,
I know where I’ve been.

We go everywhere together except
the washing machine.
“Don’t let them
put me in there!”
you beg.
Personification is a figure of speech that is used to give human characteristics to something that is not human. 
Speech Bubble
Think of an object or animal...
What would I say?
Speech Bubble
What would I do for fun?
Speech Bubble
What would I like?
Speech Bubble
What would make me happy or sad?
Speech Bubble
Let's try
What it actually does
It eats eggs
What kind do I cook? Sunny Side Up? Scrambled? An Omelet?
It sleeps
Curls up with a blanket and teddy. Puts on jammies. Sets the alarm clock
It moves
How a person does it
Should I crawl? Climb? Sneak around?
