This Inferring and Describing with Pictures product is a great way to have fun while learning. Students are to observe and describe pictures and make inferences using worksheets and PPT.
You can use this product as an ice-breaker every day, using one picture a day, or turn four pictures into an hour-long class.
My students also love to discuss their inferences with their partners.
You can use the worksheets without the PPT in your literacy center or homework as well.
ESL students, regardless of the age, find it difficult to start their sentences, which is why I added a page of useful phrases to start sentences.
This product is appropriate for all elementary grades as well as ESL adult students.
The Packet includes:
15 Picture Presentation - PPT (with animated pop-up words)
43 Page handouts in four different versions
1 Useful phrases
