This activity was designed to help students build executive function skills (use of self talk) to help them make inferences and better understand what they read. This activity includes visual aids to help students learn how to make inferences, thought prompting questions to help them understand different perspectives and locate clue words from 9, one paragraph stories. Based on Costa's "Three Story Intellect", this activity includes 3 different versions for various student abilities. Level 1: includes visuals, multiple choice options and prompting questions. Level 2 has visuals and thought prompting questions in the beginning, but not throughout. there are no multiple choice options, but a list of adjectives is included in the beginning. Level 3 is intended for students who already are able to make inferences from stories. Challenge your students to apply what they know about character traits and emotions and write their own stories including dialogue and inferred language based on given scenarios.
