We will be fine tuning our comprehension skills and developing our understanding of why authors use a variation of persuasive devices in their writing . Our class read will be The Watertower, will Bubba find his pants.....?
As SATs are fast approaching we will be consolidating all those gaps in our grammar, learning and making sure we are familiar with those tricky spelling rules .
