More Inferring

16 Oct

Today we worked with a famous poem by Robert Frost :

Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

We used a graphic organizer to judge whether a series of statements were supported by the text, inferences based on evidence from the text, or totally unsupported by the text.  Here is the sheet we used Frosts poetry inferring chart
Following this activity which was done as a class, the students read Hercules and the Wagoner which is an Aesops Fable and completed a sililar chart with statements about the story.
In math we continued to work on our multiplication books.  Students can be researching new ways to multiply at home in order to be ready to finish their books tomorrow.
