Last week's lesson plans were super exciting! The kids worked together in order to learn how to summarize the main topic and key details of a text in writing. They were too busy having fun learning about zoo animals to notice how much learning they were doing.  This week we are moving away from informational text and into fiction.  

The first day of the week will be dedicated to learning to love reading.  Every nine weeks I host a Book Tasting.  I use a unit from Joanne Miller on Teachers Pay Teachers.  Students get to sample a ton of different genres and books with the objective of making a list of books that they would love to read.  Every teachers dream, right?  After the Book Tasting we will move into one of my favorite standards which is inferencing.  Students will use their questioning strategies along with finding key details in order to have fun inferring character traits, settings and other details in a text.

Students always love inferencing work stations.  I like to start with simple work stations where students look at pictures and use their schema to figure out what the pictures have in common.  These are my Inferring Bags.  We then move onto fun clues and animal tracks in order to figure out what tracks belong to which animal.  You can find the animal tracks task cards here.  We end the week with an informal assessment using character trait inferencing cards.  I promise it will be another fun filled week of meaningful learning!

This week writer's workshop should move pretty smoothly.  Students will learn to make a writing plan and add descriptive adjectives to their writing.
