Spark your students' interest in each new Journeys story with simple virtual props! My students love to infer what the new story will be about based on the clues I reveal in our Virtual Evidence Bags. It's quick and allows them to predict what the story will be about before we read it. These predictions allow the students a chance to find patterns and put details together. As each prop is introduced, the students' inferences narrow as they consider what the clues have in common, or how they could be used together. An added bonus - they try to find out why I selected each prop as we read the story, so their focus during the reading has improved!
