At the beginning of the school year I spent a couple of days talking about what good readers do. During this day, we just briefly talked about inferences.
Included in this are :
- My powerpoint slides for the shared lesson
- Inferencing cards used for shared learning. I used the book Two Bad Ants to read aloud. As I went through I modeled with specific pages giving an inference.
- I also created 2 short passages for independent and collaboration work for beginning 3rd graders to use. Graphic organizers for the kids too.
