Students with language difficulties struggle to make inferences and draw conclusions when faced with text in the classroom and on tests.
Teach them that these skills are actually things that they do everyday whether it be eavesdropping on a big sister or listening in on mom’s phone conversation. Help them master the art of making inferences and drawing conclusions exclusive of text- then they can grow from there!
Take your cell phone to language therapy and role play (or have them role play) the phone conversations in this fun and funtional activity. I bet they can make inferences!
