Reader's Workshop
During our Reader's Workshop, we are working on the comprehension skills of asking questions and making inferences while we read. We have been talking about how important it is to think while we read so we began to notice what we were thinking about. We noticed that we were wondering about the stories we read or asking ourselves questions as we read. We know that asking questions helps us to stay focused on what we are reading because we then read to search for answers to our questions. Sometimes we find the answers and sometimes we don't but asking questions gives us so much to think about. All of this questioning will lead naturally into a discussion of making inferences. There will be times when we are reading that we won't find a direct answer to our questions but we will be able to figure out the answer to our questions by gathering clues as we read. This is called making an inference. We will begin to talk about making an inference next week.
