Can you help?! The Lunch Bunch Club created winter snow globe projects to hang in the hallway of Kind Elementary School. Inside of the snow globe, the students drew a picture of a place they would like to visit one day! Each member wrote a report to go with their snow globe. There is one BIG problem, though – Mrs. Hill, their writing teacher, forgot to tell the kids to write the name of the place they would like to visit on their report. Now, the snow globe projects are all MIXED UP! Can your students use their inference skills to help the Lunch Bunch Club by working together as literacy detectives?

Join Sam, Sara, Mike, Lee, Theo, Wendy, Darcy, and May in this January Read and Infer edition of The Snow Globe Mix-Up In each edition, your students will use their own schema and clues from the text to help the Lunch Bunch Club solve a big problem. My hope is that your students come to know these eight characters as “old pals” within your classrooms! At the same time, they will build important literacy skills as they infer, draw conclusions, make predictions, write about their reading and reasoning, and think critically.
In January’s Snow Globe Mix-Up Edition, your students will infer where each member of the Lunch Bunch Club would like to go one day. They can work as a whole class, a small group, or within a literacy center to match the pictures and the writing reports to the correct snow globe. The pack includes TONS of differentiated recording sheets – choose the format or formats that best meet your students’ needs. Your students will be engaged in discussions as they infer and activate their background knowledge to analyze the clues. They will provide and write evidence in order to prove their inferences throughout several of the recording sheets.
A writing extension activity is included within the pack, complete with blank templates for your students to write their own inference clues for one another.
BONUS: Eight winter inference riddle cards, with differentiated recording sheets, are also included! These inference riddle cards are the perfect addition to your mini lessons, small group reading activities, literacy centers, or independent fast-finisher activities.
