Today we started class by completing guided notes for the terms Observation, Inference, and Prediction. We did a PopCorn Read-Aloud and completed our notes together. I projected my completed notes as we went along and provided the students with examples of each of the three terms (students also had CLASS SET examples on their tables for reference). I then explained how to cut and paste the foldable notes into the ISN. I continued to project my completed notes.
After our note-taking, students had 30+ minutes (the rest of the class period) to cut/paste and color their notes, create/continue their Tables of Contents on pages II - III, and to page number their ISN all the way to the very end (page 178).
Anything not completed in class should be completed for homework.
