Inferring..... Isn't it a hard skill to assess???
Especially for GRADES 1 THROUGH 3. Finding appropriate texts can sometimes seem impossible.

My team and I were having a really hard time finding material that would assess how well our students were mastering making inferences. I made a few little passages that finally developed into this packet. It has been really great. You can easily see who is doing great and who is struggling using these pages.

I teach first grade. I don't expect all of my students to know every word, but they do know the majority. I tell them a word if they can't get it by themselves. They are all reading on level G or higher.

About This Product:

There are 14 kid friendly mini passages with an inferring graphic organizer for each. The text are all pretty simple. The work is differentiated, not the text.

Because I know how busy teachers are, I have provided a key for each passage.

Differentiation –Each passage has graphic organizer partially/unfilled filled.

BELOW LEVEL STUDENTS: GIVE THE STUDENTS THE INFERENCE, THEY GIVE YOU THE TEXT ALWAYS MODEL AND ENTIRE PASSAGE FIRST. THEN, HAVE THE WORK WITH A PARTNER, THEN THEY CAN TRY IT INDEPENDENTLY IF THEY ARE READY.

ON LEVEL STUDENTS: GIVE THE STUDENTS THE TEXT. THEY GIVE YOU THE INFERENCE. ALWAYS MODEL AND ENTIRE PASSAGE FIRST. THEN, HAVE THE WORK WITH A PARTNER, THEN THEY CAN TRY IT INDEPENDENTLY IF THEY ARE READY.

ABOVE LEVEL STUDENTS: THE STUDENT GIVES THE INFFERENCE AND THE SUPPORTING TEXT. ALWAYS MODEL AND ENTIRE PASSAGE FIRST. THEN, HAVE THE WORK WITH A PARTNER, THEN THEY CAN TRY IT INDEPENDENTLY IF THEY ARE READY.

One thing I have found is that if you use the word "because" to make a connection between what the text says and what it probably means, the students aren't as likely to write something that doesn't make sense.
Check out the preview!
