Reflection: Classroom Setup Inferring Practice - Section 1: Inference Game


While shopping at Target, I found these really cool mini lined, double-sided white boards. They were in the dollar bins. You could also make them with paper and lamination. I pull them out for lessons that require two answers, like this one. With both sides being lined, I can have them put an answer on each side. For this lesson, I have them write their inference on one side and their evidence on the other. The small switch in materials sparks an interest in my students. The different white boards are new, fun, and exciting to use.

Lesson 6 of 15

Objective: SWBAT infer from a text and give text evidence to support their inference.

Big Idea: Inferring is one of the most difficult skills to master while reading. When students do infer they are not confident of how they came up with that idea. This lesson works on both.
