Go: JHS Grammar PageYEAR-END REVIEW (grade 3)


FUN FACT: "This is an unusual paragraph. I’m curious as to how quickly you can find out what is so unusual about it? It looks so plain you would think nothing was wrong with it, and, in fact, nothing is! It is unusual though. If you study it and think about it, you still may not find anything odd, but if you work at it for an hour or two, it might dawn on you!" <see answer below>
