Perfect Pins!

Happy Sunday!

I hope everyone has some fun filled activities planned for today!

One thing I saw this morning was a pin on pinterest, and I am excited to share these. All of these videos are linked to inferencing. This is one skill that can be difficult for all young students to learn. Referring to my class personally, "reading between the lines" is a skill that my kiddos can always use help with developing. (It can be so difficult for them to pull from their "schema" - love that word!!)

The three videos that were pinned are:

Pigeons: Impossible - Pigeons - One Man Band

All of these wordless films are great for engaging kids to see and focus on what is happening. (click each title for the youtube link)

Pigeons: Impossible is great for inferring the setting, and different attributes about the man in the film. (Such as: What does he do?, Character feelings based on events and expressions) Students can also predict what will happen in the film.
It is a short 6 minute clip, that all students will enjoy.

Pigeons can be used with inferring and making connections to the chicks. Not only inferring the feelings and settings, however making connections to the way they behave in real life.

One Man Band is another film. This one is only 4 minutes, however it also gives viewers a chance to infer information about the video. (Such as: What do these men do for a living?, Why do you think they are behaving the way they are?, Character feelings for the musicians as well as the kid, What will happen next?)

Awesome anchor chart that I found while Googlin'! :) It's kinda wordy, but if you explain it they will learn it!

Have an awesome week!! As always, thank you for reading! :)
