Welcome To My English Wikipage



My first writting 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 I wrote.


The bubble gum was as sticky as super glue.

The orange pumpkin was as round as a popcorn ball.

The scary ghost was as white as the bright white crystal snow.

The blood the vampire drank was as red as the crisp poison apple.

The scared cat’s hair was as straight as a pin that my mom was using to hem my Halloween costume.
