work out my writing muscles!
It was very clear to me today that I have not focused on response to reading in my intervention groups. To wrap up our mini unit on making inferences, I asked students to read a short text (or listen to a recording of me reading it). Next they had to make an inference and provide text evidence to support their inference.
Yes, it's also very clear to me that I should not be attempting this sort of individual work in the final days before a vacation (whoop whoop Spring Break starts tomorrow afternoon!)
I did receive some very clear and thoughtful responses with solid text evidence. I also received some emojis for some answers because I asked students to submit the Google form with what they finished, and I required all the answers to be filled in.
This text face in one reply made me laugh: (∵◕◡◕∵)
I told my students, "This formative shows me what you're thinking. It also shows me what works or doesn't as a formative.
Is your head spinning from all the new thinking and problem-solving you've done this year?
