Hello Friends~

So let's talk about Making Inferences for a moment. Weather you teach primary or elementary grades, this is a difficult strategy for students to grasp. Sometime it is due to lack of personal experiences & background knowledge. Which, if that's the case then your students will tend to shut down & not participate. That is the last thing we want. Teaching & learning needs to be meaningful, intentional & fun! We need to use a gradual release as we build students with strategies & skills that they can eventually apply independently. 

So with all that being said, we need to teach Making Inferences intentionally with a gradual release. That is why I have created this product. Teaching students to infer visually first with low level questioning & prompts. Then eventually move into inferring text with higher level questioning & fewer prompts. This gradual release will help to build confidence in students to use meaningful strategies on their own. 

Lastly, the ultimate test of comprehension is in a written format. When student can transfer their oral reasoning & comprehension into a written format, as teachers we can really assess the students true capabilities of the concept taught.

My Making Inferences packs are based around these standards:
It is more important now in education than ever to teach are students to be "text talkers" by making inferences, claims, judgments & more based on textual evidence. 

Here's what is included in this product:

As always, implementation of activities after instruction depends on each teachers & class. I have included "Teaching Points" to get started with using this product as well.
