                                                                   Best Mates
by Paora Tibble

I am learning about...
I.A.L.A Make and explain my inferences using information in the text

These are things I am already good at doing all the time in my reading
  • Reading longer texts and remember what has happened over a number of days
  • Talk about what they have read with others in the story
  • Reread
  • Automatically select and apply a decoding strategy when they find unknown word
My inference was that Mana is feeling really sad about his mate Jackson leaving and moving away to Auckland. The clues I used in the text were: "stink Jacksons leaving"
