 Teacher will read aloud chapter 1 to students.
 Teacher will explain that we make inferences all the time. when mom hold up her finger while she is on the phone, you know that...(sr) you have to wait and stop bugging her. That is making inference. It is knowing how a person feels based on how they are acting. They don't have to say it, you are just able to figure it out.

Why do you think this? Use examples from the text. Write down the page number. How does Peter feel as the Yarby's give him his present? Why do you think this? Use examples from the text. Write down the page number.
 Explain to your partner what an inference is and how to figure out how a person feels.
