Week of 9/24
We are studying inferencing. We have been reading different texts and are learning the forumla to help us infer.
What I read + What I already know = What I can infer
We are starting our Literature Circles. I have introduced this process to them and the students seem to be enjoying the collaboration. We have learned that groups will consist of Discussion Director, Predictor, Questioner, Clarifier, and a Summarizer. We are using The Chicken Sisters as a realoud to help us intergrate this new classroom strategy.
In Social Studies we have finished Absolute/Relative Locations and are now learning about the 3 regions of North Carolina. The students created a foldable and they have listed, landforms, bodies of water, natural resources, and culture. They will be using this information later this week to create a brochure. I will keep the brochure at school to use as an assessment tool.
