It's the end of the year at Kind Elementary School, and the Lunch Bunch Club is getting ready for their end of year award ceremony! Each student will receive an award, but there is a BIG problem! Mrs. Hill, their teacher, forgot to write the students' names on each of the award certificates. Oh no! Now she can't remember who will receive each award, and Mrs. Hill is all MIXED-UP! The only things she can find are the sweet letters she wrote to each student. They need your help! Your students will read each letter from Mrs. Hill and infer which student will receive each end of year award certificate. Can your students use their inference skills to help the Lunch Bunch Club by working together as literacy detectives?

Join Sam, Sara, Mike, Lee, Theo, Wendy, Darcy, and May in this May Read and Infer edition of The End of Year Mix-Up In each edition, your students will use their own schema and clues from the text to help the Lunch Bunch Club solve a big problem. My hope is that your students come to know these eight characters as “old pals” within your classrooms! At the same time, they will build important literacy skills as they infer, draw conclusions, make predictions, write about their reading and reasoning, and think critically.
In May's End of Year Mix-Up Edition, your students will infer which end of year award certificate each member of the Lunch Bunch Club will receive at the assembly. They can work as a whole class, a small group, or within a literacy center to match each student to the correct award certificate. The pack includes TONS of differentiated recording sheets – choose the format or formats that best meet your students’ needs. Your students will be engaged in discussions as they infer and activate their background knowledge to analyze the clues. They will provide and write evidence in order to prove their inferences throughout several of the recording sheets.
A writing extension activity is included in the pack, complete with blank templates for your students to write their own inference clues for one another.
BONUS: Eight summer inference riddle cards, with differentiated recording sheets, are also included! These inference riddle cards are the perfect addition to your mini lessons, small group reading activities, literacy centers, or independent fast-finisher activities.
