Context Clues and Persuasive Text

We have been very busy learning about using context clues to find evidence that might help us figure out unknown words when we read.
We learned that there are several different types of clues that we can look for in the text.

We had time to play some games as groups and we used our AcivExpressions to vote on some answers too!

In writing we are also working on persuasive text.  This was a lot of fun!  We are finishing up our final paragraphs.  I can't wait to read them all!
