Welcome to My English Wiki Page


My first writing project was to write five similes pertaining to the topic of Halloween. A Simile compares two different things using like or as. Here are some that I wrote.
The creepy tomb stone was as scary as a black bat.

The spooky graveyard was as quiet as a mouse.

The scary night is as dark as a black cat.

The slimy snake slithered around like slippery soap.

The dark graveyard was as dead as a scarecrow.
