Making Inferences!

This week we haqve been talking about something called an inference. An inference is when we use clues from the text and our knowledge to make a guess about what is happening in the text.

Clues from text + Our own knowledge= An INFERENCE!

We read a couple of texts and made inferences from them and yesterday we made inferences using this great little animation. Check it out…

 

 

This short little video is another way of explaining what an inference is.

Some of students practiced their inferencing skills using this game (just click the link)

Finding out in Inquiry

In JGD we have been really loving our Inquiry sessions.  We have had heaps of different activities going on in the classroom check out some of the photos below…

Sean’s BB8!

Sean’s BB8!

Today in class Sean brought in his new toy the BB8 Droid. This toy was super cute! We sat in a circle in the hall and allowed BB-8 to roll around stopping at some of us and then we would ask a question. You can control him to answer yes or no. This was a great way for us to think about the types of questions we were asking to try and find out as much information as possible.
