Teaching young children the logical steps taken to make an inference is never an easy task. And, if taught solely via spoken instruction, the difficulty is only further compounded. That is why I have created a visually strong Powerpoint presentation to increase student learning and engagement! "Stone Soup," is part of the Treasures Reading Program. This presentation facilitates the instruction of Making Inferences in a way that is easy for both the students and teacher. You will discover that you and your students will be more engaged in meaningful conversations throughout the reading, as they are at first directed, and then guided through the steps to make an inference. This presentation is a proven success!
