Welcome to the 4th Grade English Wiki Page!

This Wiki is designed to enable the students in My Fourth Grade English classes to share their various writing projects on individual Wiki pages throughout the entire school year.

The students have been learning about various topics this year which include the following:

Description-tells what something looks like, how it sounds, how it feels, how it smells, how it tastes, or what it does

Personal Voice- your own way of expressing yourself

Figurative Language- compares two different things

Simile -compares two different things using the words like or as

Metaphor- when one thing is said to be another

Imagery- using vivid language to help readers form a mental picture


Our first project was to write five similies pertaining to the topic of Halloween. The students must include the following in each simile: description, personal voice, and imagery.
