Mrs O Knows


This activity was created to support a focus on making inferences in the intermediate grades. If you were to do a web search for “inference riddles”, you will see that there are many resources available. One of my favorite ways to teach making an inference is to use riddles to model connecting text to background knowledge or schema. This winter-themed activity will be a great reinforcement after a lesson using those riddles.

This activity includes the following

-Teacher directions/ideas for use

-A two-page original background story called The Case of the Missing Snowcakes, where students are introduced to Stanley the Snowman, whose evil brothers have hidden his special snowcake desserts.

-Assignment page with a brainstorm section

-A snowman in disguise page (one with face already on and one without) to decorate/disguise (two designs to choose from)

-A blank page to write an inference riddle so that classmates can infer the snowman's disguise BEFORE they see it

-An example of both the disguise and riddle to help to get the ideas flowing!

-Recording page for gallery walk.

-Finish the story writing extension activity with stationery
