TEXT EVIDENCE FOR BEGINNERS-Are you introducing Text Evidence to your students? This is a great way to start out. Especially for students who are still learning to read."NO PREP" needed. I wanted to teach my students how to look back in the text to prove their
answers. However when we read, some of the stories
had the exact answers there, while others had my
students wondering how come they couldn't find
I had to take time to explain to them that
sometimes the author does not write the exact answers. They would need to use what they already know and use the clues to come to a decision. This led to a lesson about drawing conclusions and using inferences, which then led to this tool enabling them to practice finding evidence in Inferential text and explicit texts.
This packet will help you to introduce these simple concepts slowly. It is great for comprehension. This topic is sometimes confusing for students. Using shorter passages with more decodable words will help them focus on the overall text and feel more comfortable looking back to find the evidence. Students will then be able to develop an habit for closer reading and scanning a text for both types of evidence. There are
25 stories. 5 Inferential and 20 explicit. This tool is unique in that it is the only tool that deals with both types of evidence separately. This is the Spring Edition. Perfect for K-2
