Becoming a sixth grade author will be as "sweet as a sugar donut." And by the time you're done, you'll be able to sling similes about donuts or anything else that comes to mind.
Similes, words or phrases which compare one thing to another, are just one of the incredible literary tools you'll learn in sixth grade. You'll also brush up on sentence structure, punctuation and spelling as you research and write everything from essays to informative articles and persuasive stories [source: Williams].
This may seem like a lot to tackle, but don't worry: Your brain will keep up. It's growing at a rapid rate, making new connections and absorbing new information. You're already set up for sixth grade success. All you have to do is pay attention.
