Week 10 Read Alouds

This week we are going to focus on making inference from fables (traditional stories). When we make inferences we must use clues in the text to think deeper and gain a greater understanding about characters, setting and the plot.

We will begin the week by completing a response together and finish the week by completing an independent response to one of the fables.

As we read, we will also try to clarify the meaning of any words that we do not understand.

Monday Read Aloud (The Frogs and the Ox)

Mitch Vane – Illustrator

Next week we are lucky enough to have illustrator Mitch Vane visit our school. She is going to talk to the Middle Unit on Monday.

Before she comes, it is important that we learn a little bit about her. Mitch has written a little autobiography about herself. We will read it and think about the writing structure she has used, along with any powerful words.
