This includes a graphic organizer for making inferences about character feelings and character traits with giving textual evidence. It includes examples. Students can use this on their OWN text level with their own fiction book, therefore it's differentiated. This works perfectly with a reader's workshop model or Daily 5. It is meant to be used for 1 or 2 weeks. It also includes a 3 page test over these skills. You will need to find a fiction text that they ALL have access to, whether it's a short story or a text in a basal or a whole class set of chapter or picture books. There are many texts available online to use on readwritethink.org and readworks.org
I will be using a story taken from an anthology of Richard Scarry stories called "The 3 Wishes".
