PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Understanding how to make an inference from text is often difficult for children. Children make inferences all the time without realizing exactly what they are doing. It is important to share with them that making inferences is like being a detective. You look at all the evidence or clues and put them together along with their background knowledge to come up with an idea about a situation or problem.

When beginning to teach inferring I use riddles. I explain to them that often writers include details and we, as readers must use these details to make an inference. When you infer, you use observations, prior knowledge, experiences, and details from the text to make connections and come up with ideas.

The following "bug or creepy crawlie" riddles are a great way to introduce students to inferring or to just begin a unit of study on these creatures. Have fun and enjoy!

My kids really enjoyed trying to figure out which creepy crawler was being described. When I first introduced the center, they kids were very excited and it was the center everyone wanted to do. It was just the right level for my 3rd graders and challenged their inferencing skills. Thank you!

OOH, these could make for some fun little mini-research stations in the library. Have the kiddos draw what they "see" from the riddle and check some of the facts to verify their inference.

Oh, I love that idea! Thanks for sharing!
