Core Subjects

Weekly Objectives


– Using non-fiction texts to identify and gather information from glossaries, headings, picture captions, table of contents, and other non-fiction text features.

– Inferencing – Using word clues, picture clues, and our own background knowledge to learn what’s happening in the story.

Example: “The man put on his helmet, leather jacket, and gloves.  Then he opened the garage door.”

Question:  What is that man getting ready to do?

Inference: I think he’s going to ride a motorcycle because people that ride motorcycles usually wear helmets (background knowledge).  And it said he opened the garage (word clues), which is probably where he keeps the motorcycle.
