Have a great weekend!
On Thursday we watched a cool video during Reading Workshop to help us to practice our skill of inferring. Mrs. Tebay stopped the video a few times and had us write down what we inferred and why…..then we watched the video a second time without stopping so that we could just enjoy it.
The video was called Pigeon Impossible and here is the you-tube link https://youtu.be/jEjUAnPc2VA
We were very happy to have our teacher candidate Mrs. Melenchuk back on Wednesday. She spent the month of January completing some course work at the University. She spends Tuesdays and Wednesdays at our school, but is only in our room on Wednesday.
This week she taught a Reading Workshop lesson on Inferring. She brought in some items from her daughter and husband and had the children infer where they were going, or what they did for work. The students surprised us by what they knew- we have a lot of schema!
She then read us a book without any words and the students took turns telling the story by making inferences from the pictures.
Lastly, she had a picture of a melting snowman and the children needed to write down what they knew and what they could infer.
