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.

A big white skeleton is as white as a ghost.

A pale vampire’s face is as white as a skeleton.

The skinny skeleton is as skinny as a bone.

The scary skeleton is as creepy as a spooky haunted house.

The skeletons tall bones are as tall as a giant.

This first truck was a 1952 ford pickup truck.

When Grave Digger trucks sit idle, their headlights are off but when they start up and enter competition they glow bright menacing red in color.
