#smashingstrategies
Inferring..... Isn't it a hard skill to assess??? Especially for first grade. Most texts on first grade level do not lend themselves well to making inferences.
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 really 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 Packet

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 filled.
One with “This probably mean…” (easier)
One with “What the Text Says” (harder)
This way you can choose the skill you
want to work on.
Finally, one graphic organizer is blank (hardest) allowing the students to fill it in completely.
You will be able to see if they are mastering the skill if they can fill this organizer in without help.

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!
