Product Description

This concept of “Inferences” can be slow to start, but when the students get it, a huge light bulb goes off and a big smile spreads across their face. This is the perfect step into Informational Writing. It teaches the skills of taking what they know and combining it with new information to make a new thought. Included in this unit is how to use Close Reading Skills with Inferences as well.

It is a rewarding concept to teach and can be taught in all grades. Making Inferences is a skill that must be taught and is used a lot all through schooling.

When the students learn how to do it at a young age, it will make their research projects easier for the future.

Included:

  • Step by Step lesson plans
  • Detailed Lessons on how to use Close Reading
  • Detailed Lessons on how to use Inferences with Writing
  • 4 Different Leveled Inference Forms for differentiation
  • 2 Extension Inference Activities (Lesson Plans included)
  • Differentiated Graphic Organizers
  • Differentiated Writing Papers
  • Sample Filled out sheets

In these lessons students take the information they already know on a topic, read an article or informative story about the topic (not included) and combine the two like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and they get a new sentences. Their sentences can be combined to make a new informative paragraph all written by them! These lessons really help the get started on informative writing.

This is not a one time activity, but one that will be used all year.

Example Student Inference:

Fact I Knew: Geese have wings.

New Fact I read: Geese have a wing span of 5 feet.

Inference Sentence: Geese have wings and their wing span can get up to 5 feet.

Help your students take facts they know, combine them with facts they learn to make new sentences and paragraphs in their own words.
