Math – Telling Time Up Next
We finished off our unit on measuring this week. Next week we will begin the unit on telling time. We will work on telling time up to the 5 minute mark, like 1:25, 3:45, etc.
Reader’s Workshop: Inferring and Predicting
The latest skills we have been working on in Reader’s Workshop have been inferring and predicting. Inferring means figuring out things that the author doesn’t exactly come out and tell you, like inferring what a character might be feeling based on their facial expressions or what they do. Predictions are also guesses about a book; mainly it means using clues from what we read to help us figure out what might happen next.
