Something Happened in Mrs. Bussey’s Room Today…..

Something happened in Mrs. Bussey’s room today and the students became Inferencing Investigators to find suspects.  Someone stole the erasers from the eraser jar and messed up Room 200.  Suspects (Mr. Camp, Mr. McBride, Mrs. Odom, and Mrs. Rock) were called in for a meeting and questioned by students.  Students used inferencing skills.  We found the guilty party!  Please check the picture to see who was guilty!  It was a super, fun day in third grade!  We rotated classrooms and each reading teacher had a fun lesson on inferencing while the math teachers jumped in and helped out.  Such fun!!!!!!  Thank you to all who helped with this fun activity!
