2.Students will take turns and show respect to others when waiting their turn or when others are talking.
4. Objectives-
1.Students will state a logical inference
2. Students will cite evidence to support inference
3.Students will respect others answers and opinions
5. Materials and Aids-

6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

1.Teacher will bring students into a circle.
2. Teacher will remind students of last week's lesson about the shoe where they had to determine whose shoe it was. They had to use their schema and clues to make inferences about who the owner of the shoe was.

2.Students will join in discussion with their own inferences and evidence to support their idea about the people who near Ms. Farmer. What type of people are they? What do they like? Who is in the family?
3.Teacher will chart student's ideas and supporting evidence.
4. Teacher will conclude lesson by summarizing the findings of the group to see if all agree.

C. Practice-

see above

D. Independent Practice-

1.Students will examine a picture to practice their inference skills
2.Students will spend a few minutes looking and deducing ON THEIR OWN then students will turn and share with their neighbor.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

1.Students working alone first, then in pairs

F. Checking for understanding-

1.Teacher will take inferences from students regarding the picture.
2.Teacher will discuss appropriateness of the inference. Does the evidence support their idea?

G. Closure-

1.Teacher will compliment students on the hard work today and their great thinking.
2.Teacher will tell students that they will have more chances to practice their inference skills tonight for homework.
7. Evaluation-
1.Teacher will listen to verbal responses.
2.Teacher will observe pairs as they work
3.Teacher will correct and discuss homework the next day.
8. Teacher Reflection-
Did they understand?
