Skating Monday! Bring helmet, gloves, skates, etc.
We have been focusing on the reading skill 'making inferences in order to deepen understanding' for the past two days. It can be a difficult concept. Read the inference examples below. Similar to yesterday, create two of your own inferences by writing two indication sentences and one inference conclusion as per the examples.
Inference: Deriving Conclusions from Indications:
- Susannah's co-worker took off the day before and comes in with a sunburn. Susannah can infer that her co-worker was at the local beach.
- Julia works at a pet store and owns four cats, a lizard, a dog and a rabbit. It can be inferred that Julia is a pet lover.
- John's house smells of soy sauce and used chopsticks are on the table. It can be inferred that John just ate Chinese food.

Check out 'Flash Mind Reader'. It's cool! Can you figure out how it works? Think multiplication. Send Mrs. Van a gmail if you figure it out. By the way, it HAUNTED me until I figured it out. It took me a sleep to get it!
