Hello, I am in Ms. Doolin and Mr. Cruz’s 1st-grade class. This week in Reader’s Workshop we learned about making inferences. Ms. Doolin showed us things from her purse and we made inferences about her. For example, she showed us an apple and we guessed that she tries to be a healthy eater. Have a fantastic Friday!
