Welcome to My Fourth Grade 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 ghostly spirit’s scream was as scary as the boogie monster.

The haunted ghost flew away like a very scared child.

The clear ghost was as scary as a haunted house.

The ghoulish ghost threw the mirror like a rock.

The transparent ghost screamed like a person rubbing their nails on a chalk board.
