As the reader can tell the skill/standard for today was inference. This is something that is done by everyone, every day. Finally, a place where there is no real right or wrong, just the educated guess.
Blocks 1 & 2 also opened their Kidblog accounts today. Now all students have their own blog. These will be used exclusively for class writing. There are many good good things about these blogs, one being that they act as a digital portfolio for each student’s writing throughout the year. It is a running record of the progress made in every aspect of individual student writing. Please take a minute to look at, not only your writing, but that of others students. Each Block has their own site:
- Set up Kidblog and post a response Reader Response Oct 2 – must be finished by class time tomorrow
- Inference Mini-lesson & Practice – Power Point Making+Inferences Power Point, practice – making-inferences-2 (work time in class to finish)
- Retests will start tomorrow and Friday
This after school program is available to all students in English/Language Arts on Monday and Wednesday. I am the teacher in charge. It is a great place to retest, stay current with assignments, and get extra help in ELA, including reading, grammar, and writing.
This is a voluntary program, although if a student fails to turn in assignments or needs to finish something I will assign them to attend a session to insure work is completed in a timely manner.
Have a great evening!
