If you were to walk into our classroom you would see that we are engaged in learning. We (Students) are in charge of going over the classroom rules and the SWBAT on a daily basis. We are learning how to be leaders in the classroom.
We are learning about making inferences and how we use our "schema" background knowledge plus the clues in the text to make an inference. Ask your child to show you the hand gestures we learned in class (whole brain teaching). We have worked and practiced making inferences with a partner using picture cards and short text questions. It was a blast!
