The first step was to find some people in the school to 'send' the mail to our class. I asked our gym teacher, the library clerk, and the principal. Here is what our library clerk sent us:
Object #2: a ruler (for choosing books in our library)
Next, the students needed to use their 'inferring skills' to explain why the mystery mail person would send the objects they did. Their next step was to fill in the graphic organizer provided in the pack to explain their thinking using some of the sentence starters on the anchor chart. Here are a couple of my 'stars' working hard to complete the graphic organizer.
I've made the anchor chart available on my Teachers Pay Teachers store for FREE, so head on over there if you want to download a copy to make for your own class!
À bientôt, mes amis!
