This digital inferences resource features four complete lessons. It is compatible with Google Slides. The lessons feature both instructional slides AND practice slides where students complete a task related to the instructional slides. Use these activities over the course of four days to provide targeted instruction for your students. They can be used as a large group activity, in a small group setting, OR as an engaging self-paced reading lesson.
The slides in each lesson progress from basic to more complex. Answer keys are included. CHECK OUT THE PREVIEW to see some of the slides in these lessons.
Lesson #1: Introduction to Making Inferences (12 slides)
-This lesson includes seven instructional slides. On the first slide, students are introduced to the two key components of making inferences: text and schema (background knowledge). The next four slides illustrate how a reader can read a passage and make an inference in order to answer a question. The remaining two instructional slides focus on how readers can infer a character's feeling (emotion) and motive.
-The lesson contains four practice slides. Students are presented with ten short fiction passages. After reading each passage, students must make an inference in order to correctly answer the question. Students also highlight the text clues provided by the author that allowed them to make the inference.
-The other slide is the title slide.
Lesson #2: The Importance of Visualizing When Making Inferences (7 slides)
-This lesson includes two instructional slides. On the first slide, students learn about the importance of visualizing as they infer through an illustrated explanation. The other instructional slide points out that visualizing can also help when reading a nonfiction passage.
-The lesson contains four practice slides. On the first two slides, students read short fiction passages. After explaining what they visualized while reading, students answer an inference question. On the last two slides, students read short nonfiction passages. After labeling the related diagram, they answer an inference question.
Lesson #3: Supporting Your Inference Answers with Text Evidence (8 slides)
-This lesson includes two instructional slides. One features a fiction passage and the other has a nonfiction passage. After reading the passage, teachers and students can work together to answer the inference question and provide text evidence to support their answer.
-The lesson contains five practice slides. These slides feature two fiction passages and one nonfiction passage. Students independently read the passages. Then, they answer the inference questions and support their answers by identifying text clues and schema they already had that was helpful.
Lesson #4: Putting It All Together/Test Prep (6 slides)
The main objective for this final inferences lesson is to expose students to multiple-choice questions related to making inferences. Students will likely see questions like these on standardized tests. This lesson includes 2 fiction reading passages and 1 nonfiction reading passage. Nine multiple-choice questions are included in this lesson. All of the questions require students to make inferences.
This digital lesson resource is an expanded version of my printable inference trifolds. The practice activities in my printable trifolds are the same as the practice activities in these digital lessons. The main difference between the two versions is that this digital version offers with that are not included in the printable tri-folds. I really want to stress the overlap to teachers who have previously purchased my inference trifolds so that they are aware of this overlap before they purchase this expanded, alternate version.
