Product Description
This resource can be used whole group, in small groups, or individually. I typically tell my students that we draw conclusions all the time in our everyday lives. I give the example of hearing one side of a phone conversation and drawing conclusions about who the person is talking to and what they are talking about. Many students will be able to relate to this (by hearing their parents talk on the phone). I often model doing this orally (pretending to be on the phone with someone and then have students draw as many conclusions as they can about who I am talking to and what I am talking about). We discuss what drawing conclusions involves.

Then, I have students work in partners or groups (or you could make this a choice during Daily 5) to read the one-sided "phone" conversations on the sheet. Each conversation is numbered so that students can record their responses to the questions on a separate sheet of paper.

Afterwards, we often discuss what evidence students used to draw their conclusions.

The reading level of these "conversations" would be appropriate for students in 2nd grade and above. You may have some students who are "advanced" in first grade and who would be able to read these.
