Mrs. Williams' Class
February will be focused on inferencing. Students will learned how to infer meaning. We will be using this "formula" to aid us in our inferencing: BK + TC = I. This will teach the kids that you will need to use your "Background Knowledge" (BK) and use the "Text Clues" (TC) to Infer (I) the meaning within the text. Students will practice this skill with both nonfiction and fiction text. We are continuing to read in our novel groups. Students are providing evidence of their reading comprehension by writing reading responses from a prompt every couple of chapters.
