Today we started working on a new reading skill: inferencing! The students had a great time making inferences based on a short animated Youtube video. We will be working on this skill for the next couple of weeks through various activities.
I also introduced students to their summer reading project. Students are to select ANY 3 activities to complete the project. The due date for all three activities is Friday, October 5, 2012, however students can feel free to turn the assignments in early if they choose to do so. I have also included a student checklist so that students can monitor whether they completed all parts of the assignment. I have attached the summer reading activities and the checklist below.
