After creating my first set of Fiction Mini Passages, I decided to create another set due to the demand. Since Inferring is such a difficult skill, you can never have too much practice.

About This Product:
There are 12 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.
