 Mrs. Davis (4b/c Hour only)

8/14- Today we went over our reading procedures for class.   Students are required to read independently at home for 15 minutes each day.  They will be tallying their minutes daily to reach a goal of 3,000 minutes for the school year!
We reviewed what inferencing is and filled out a vocab sheet to support our learning.  We worked in pairs to form a better understanding of what it really means to infer along with a quick write!
Meet and Greet starts at 6pm tonight!  I hope to see you at FHMS!

Homework: Explain our class reading chart to your family tonight!

8/15 Tuesday- Students expanded on their knowledge of inferencing with the start of the "Unpack a Character" activity.  They looked at contents of a backpack and had to determine who the owner might be.

8/16 Wednesday- Students did part 2 of the inferencing activity with a suitcase.  All students should bring a free read chapter book to class daily.  Reading checks are done on Monday's with emails home if progress is not being made.

Homework: Tell you family what inferences are and about our suitcase backpack lesson!

8/17- Students logged into Chromebooks and joined my Google Classroom!  We had a short writing assignment on inferences from our backpack/suitcase activity.

Homework: READ!  Independent reading is 15 minutes each night at home!

FINISH GOOGLE CLASSROOM Backpack/Suitcase paragraph (scoring guide is in Google Classroom and students have a copy in their ELA binder they should have taken home if they did not finish in class!).  You have limited access to Google Classroom as a parent, but can see their work!
