We have really been working hard on inferring in class for the past two weeks!  Inferring is one of the hardest reading concepts we will do this year. 

This week we learned that to make an inference we need to use our schema (background knowledge) plus our text clues (or evidence).

We had a great time on Wednesday when we practiced inferring with poetry.  Students had to infer what animal the poem was about by using their schema and text clues. Here's an example!

We also all met together with Ms. Becerra, our reading facilitator. She did a super fun inferring activity!  The kids were all detectives!  Ask your child all about it!
