*This resource now comes with FULL-PAGE TEXT and FULL PAGE QUESTION/ANSWER format, in addition to interactive flip flaps for notebooks!
Please Note: I have chosen to focus the majority of the questions for this bundle on inferencing in informational text and determining the meaning of domain specific vocabulary. Inferencing is a complex skill and requires more practice than answering questions found right in the text, therefore these two standards work well together and are an easy way to practice inferencing and determining vocabulary at the same time.
This set is complete with a range of ten informational texts and interactive flip flaps for notebooks and full-sheet text and full-sheet questions for those of you limited on time with interactive notes. I have also included possible responses for every part of this set to help guide your instruction. In this set, you will also find posters to hang in your classroom and an introduction to the standard complete with student notes. These activities can be used for classwork, notes, centers, homework, and assessments. In my class, we first read the article thoroughly (you might opt to do this individually, in pairs, small groups, or whole class.). Next, we look at the text and discuss any unknown words (this is a great place to begin making inferences). Next, I model strategies on how to properly make inferences (using the inference starters and/or inference sentence frames). Lastly, we discuss the questions and work to find logical answers. I always have my students share their inferences, so their classmates can see how more than one logical inference can make sense. Of course this is just an idea, feel free to go in any order that works best for your students. ☺
