Product Description
Are you looking for a fun way to get your students involved in making inferences? Goosh is a great way to have students become involved in making inferences and using context clues to figure out nonsense words. Our third and fourth graders absolutely love doing "goosh" and have even starting writing some of their own!

Included in this download are 10 Goosh stories we have written with a nonsense word in each story. The students have to use clues and what they know in their brains to guess what word the nonsense word really is! The students will have a blast with this interactive PowerPoint!

Directions are as follows and are included in the packet along with the answer key:
Teacher or students will read the clues on each story, one sentence at a time. (PowerPoint only show one sentence at a time. Click to make the next sentence appear.)
As each sentence is read, teacher will stop and ask for guesses, which she or students will write on the Goosh Chart (which is a free download).
When a student gives a guess, they also have to give a reason why (proof) they chose that answer. (e.g. Oopla – I eat an oopla everyday at lunch. Guess= sandwich Reason (proof) = because it is lunchtime.)
Teacher or students will read the next sentence, and determine if the guesses already made are still good (If still good place a check mark, if not put an X in correct column). Teacher will ask for more guesses and proof.
Continue this process until the nonsense word has been identified. Then reveal the picture.

***Also, visit our TpT page for a free downloadable chart you can use as your students make their guesses for the nonsense words, prove their guesses, and decide if their guess is correct!

Watch for more goosh stories in the future!
