Welcome to My English Wiki Page


My first writing project was to write five similes pertaining to the topic of Halloween. A simile compres two different things using like or as. Here are some that I wrote. The scary ghost was as mean as a grizzly bear.

The haunted house was as like a very scary ghost.

The howling wolf was as loud as a heavy door slamming.

The spooky mummy is as white as the bright snow.

The scary vampire had sharp teeth like huge bat.
