This is an inferencing activity that I use with my high school students.
Every year, inferencing is the first unit of any English class I teach, because it's critical for students to learn the skill of active reading - and always making connections, and reading between the lines for meaning.
This asks students to use their inferencing skills in a super creative way - to read VERY short short stories (some are just 6 words!) and make connections to their prior knowledge to make guesses about what the story is about.
It sparks some terrific discussions!!
-an inferencing worksheet where they look at the 5 W's
-19 short stories for you to print
(I find it best to do these in pairs or part of a rotation).
It's so much fun...and really gets them talking and inferencing!
It pushes their reading skills to the limit.
