Inferring-Using a staged trashcan we pulled out items and inferred about that person. I later pasted those items to a chart trashcan and included wording that we use when we talk about inferring. (Angela Bunyi)
I think I'm going to use some variation of this in place of signed reading logs...readers journal? Two entries a week, once in class and once at home. No need to record minutes. I really like the "books I'd like to read" section and the vocabulary section.
