Today in class we discussed cause and effect. Based on the cause and effect in the passage we did together we were then able to infer an unstated meaning about a character, setting, problem, character’s actions, words, decisions, relationships or interactions.

I modeled this today using a story about how dog’s can be heroes and we filled out the graphic organizer together. I asked the students to do one for today and they turned them into me at the end of class or else they were homework.

Tomorrow they will practice this skill on their own during class.



Read at least 20 minutes to prepare for the book talk on Monday, February 3.

5th hour: Memorize your prefixes for your quiz on Friday.

If you did not finish the cause/effect/infer worksheet it was homework.
