The students had a great time today watching a short Pixar movie clip (“Partly Cloudy”) and making inferences as we watched. We also played a game of charades in class today where the students had to infer what their peers mood was based on the nonverbal clues. They are doing a great job with inferencing and are seeing how much fun learning can be! Next week we will begin to apply this strategy to reading passages.
Students have not had any homework this week other than to work on their summer reading project that is due Friday, October 5. I am urging them to get them done as soon as possible so that they do not feel rushed at the last minute. Beginning next week you should expect to see Language Arts homework at least twice a week other than the project that will be ongoing through the month of September.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me about any questions or concerns. I am here to help!
