WALT: Use written language features to engage our audience


Spring is the season when the blossoms bloom.
All the animals come out to play; new baby animals join the world.
You can hear the birds tweeting, happily.
The weather’s perfect - not too cold, not too hot.
People can spend more time outside. They'll have lots of fun.
Beautiful scenery all around.
