Making inferences is hard for many students. This ready-to-go product walks them step by step through:
• Pictures with whole class learning, followed by working in a small group or with a partner
• A picture book
•Their own independent reading
Use the PowerPoint filled with Norman Rockwell paintings and photographs from National Geographic, to have students first observe, then infer, and finally make predictions.
Use these slides with your whole class, then have them work in small groups or with partners. By the final slide, they understand the differences between these three important skills! The final slide includes questions from The Sweetest Fig
by Chris Van Allsburg.
All the lesson plans and materials (PowerPoint, close reading passage, exit slips, graphic organizers and homework sheets) are included.
Your only job is to make copies and you're good to go!
