Read the article, "Over the River" in your Time for Kids this week. Think about the MAIN idea, or message, the author is trying to say in the article. Make a claim based on the main idea that you read. Then, use evidence from the article to PROVE that claim. Use your reasoning to explain how your evidence relates to the claim you made.
Example- Bemis is a great school. I know this because students are always engaged in their learning, which makes me think that Bemis must be great. I also see students giving their best on the work in the hallway. This makes me believe that students care about their work, which means they are great students!
After you are finished, ask questions to other classmates, make a connection to their thinking, or add on to their thinking.
