Readaloud Dear City Councilman, The rule, the wearing of shoes indoors will be prohibited that you would like to enforce is an extravagant idea. I support it all the way. I have often wanted to take my shoes off indoors, but have not because of embarrassment. Many problems can be prevented with this rule. I know 93.7% of people in the U.S. have carpet in their houses. How many times have you heard your mother yell, "You just tracked mud all over the floor. Now you need to clean it up." Well, I have heard it often. And let me tell you something, mud is not easy to get out of carpeting. If we had that rule, carpet in homes, schools, office buildings and stores will last a lot longer and will not have as much dirt. Imagine that you are in a hurry and you're shopping for clothes in a mall. You go into Dillard's and try an outfit on. Now, you have to put your shoes back on, run to another store, take off your shoes to change, put them back on when you're done, then go to another store and so on and so on. Shoes take me the longest to put back on, because I have to sit on the floor (not all stores have seats in the changing rooms) and lace up my shoes and stand back up. If we were not allowed to wear shoes in stores, then that would be one less thing to slow us down and worry about. It would also be more comfortable to walk around the mall, especially if you are wearing high heeled shoes that day. Since you wouldn't wear your shoes as often, they would be able to last a lot longer. This means, those leather boots you have in your closet that are all scuffed up and look old could have had a much longer life span. You could have used the money you would have saved, instead of buying another pair, and spent it on a CD, makeup, or on gifts for your teacher! You could save a lot of money that way. So you see, passing and enforcing this rule would save you time, money and you would be able to be comfortable. Working Mothers and Fathers would love you for helping them have a few less things to think about. If the rule is passed, life will be a lot easier to live.

Mexican immigrants Reasons they’re good. Reasons they’re bad. AS YOU TAKE NOTES: Number your facts. Place an (f) next to each note if it is a fact. Place an (o) next to each note if it is an opinion. Then complete the chart on slide 11 to identify facts, opinions, and opinions that might be backed up by facts if the right source were identified. 1.Qwkug 2.We 3. wq 4.Fe 5. r4 e 6. r4 g 7. y5 8. 9.Ef 10.F f 11. ef Note the set-up.

Fact v. Opinion A fact is a true statement. No one can argue with a fact. Somehow, a fact can be verified, and the answer will always be the same. The following article from CNN will show some ways that statements can be verified. An opinion is one person’s thought or idea. A different person might have a different opinion or answer. Opinions cannot be verified.

I DO The librarian will analyze today’s readaloud activity on slide #4 to locate verified facts, unverified opinions, and statements that could, researching a reliable resource, could be considered facts.
We Do Students will read two statements from a blog, take Cornell notes, identify whether the statements are fact or opinion, and identify resources that could verify information in the notes to make them facts.
You Do Students will independently read ten statements from a blog, take Cornell notes, identify whether the statements are fact or opinion, and identify resources that could verify information in the notes to make them facts.
