Context clues can be fun! We often come across words that confuse us, and then we do a terrible thing… we skip over them! As good readers, we need to stop, record the WORD, make an INFERENCE based on the CLUES, and then determine the meaning!
Last week we looked at creating a plot chart from a literary fiction book. As a class we listened to the book, “Thank you Mr. Falker.” We then created a plot chart, and later turned that plot chart in for a summary. Students did this in partners and made a plot chart on their own. Next week, the plot chart will be turned into a summary for a grade. We will come back to this a lot this school year. If you are looking for extra practice, there are lots of great literary (tells a story) fiction books read aloud on http://www.storylineonline.net/.
Please excuse messy handwriting! When I get excited and we get going…. the handwriting is the first to go!

We have been using this chart at school to help us break down stories and help us write summaries. It is great practice, if you are interested in doing it at home!
Students will have to fill one out for their Friday Assessment tomorrow!
We use the information on our Plot chart to write a summary! We have modeled and practiced in class!
