Lesson Plan for Inferencing using "Mystery Mail." The "mail" depends on your class and their interests but this is a great way to get the students to use their inferencing skills. Can be done as a full lesson or a mini-lesson. Also a good way to prep for the State Tests if the students are struggling to answer inferencing questions correctly.
I did this lesson during my second observation during my student teaching in a 4th and 5th grade self-contained classroom.
