How do we help young readers to make inferences? In this unit, you will find resources to use as you teach about this important process.
Transitional readers have to learn how to do two things at once as they read: decode the words AND understand the text. These materials are carefully designed to be easy to decode while still providing a comprehension challenge. You will find an introduction activity to use as a whole class lesson, three independent or center activities, and six texts at levels G-L. Texts include before reading activities and questions to build understanding.
