    This is a great resource. Just what I was thinking I needed for next week. Thank you!

    Thank you so much for these pins! I've collected lots of pictures from magazines to inspire students' descriptive writing. Now some of them will have two purposes!

  • Nancy Garcia

    Thanks for the ideas!

Inference: Why isn't this woman using a fork to eat her pie? Why do you think so?

Recent sightings: Let 'em eat pie!
  • Edwin Torres

    it's a pie eating contest it's when you stuff your face in pie and eat it as fast as you can

  • Sara Brisby

    Haha, Edwin,I love it. The question Rachel asked is what you would ask your students to get them to make inferences. She already knows the answer.

Inference: How do you think this boy feels about his dinner? What makes you think so?

  • Jess Blatz

    I dont think that this boy likes what is being served in front of him. He is dreading dinner. What makes me think so, is that way he is looking at the veggies in that resentful manner. He has a pissed off look on his face.

  • Julia Snider

    I think the boy feels sad.

  • Julia Snider

    I think this boy is sad because he doesn't like the vegetables.

Inference: What time of year was this picture taken? How do you know?

What is an STD?
  • Jess Blatz

    This picture was taken in the fall. I know this because the leaves are all different colors and they are on the ground.

Inference: What are two things you can say about the the people who cast these shadows? What makes you think so?

Inference: What do you think is in this person's backpack? Why do you think so?

  • {Elizabeth}

    I think I love this picture the most to get students to infer, because he is doing something that has a definite and (perhaps) final consequence - so the students are hopefully going to come up with an answer that would help this guy! :)

  • Chris Kelly

    Rachel, I pinned this a few weeks ago and now I cannot get to this site. Do you have the one link? Otherwise, I see it is all on this board. Thanks for your hard work, i appreciate it.

  • Jess Blatz

    A parachute is in this person's backpack. I think so, because the picture shows that the boy is skydiving and he is flying in the air so obviously he is going to need a parachute to safely reach the bottom.

  • Julia Snider

    I think this guy has a parachute in his backpack.

  • Julia Snider

    I think he is going sky diving.

Inference: What are three things you can tell about the person who these feet belong to?

Treating Itching: Poison Ivy, Poison Oak, Sunburn, and Bug Bites
  • Diana Dooms

    Left-handed, 5- 6 year is a ball of energy with an extroverted personality, fair skinned, blond or red hair, light colored eyes (blue or green), likely of Northern European descent. Observations: 1. Syndactyly (digit fusion) of the 2nd and 3rd toes & ingrown toenails of both hallux (first) toes; is a congenital condition. He/She is not bothered by this, evidenced by the fact that flip-flops are worn , rather than hiding the condition in closed shoes. 2. The second toe is at least as long as the hallux toes. A common condition influenced by high levels of testosterone production during the 8-13th week of gestation, when digit elongation is most affected. Studies suggest that this condition is associated with left handedness, extroverted, competitive and risk taking behavior personalities [Note also BANDAGE on R2 toe]. 3. High propensity to sunburn most observed in populations with fair skin, red or blond hair, blue or green eyes. 4. Foot size, ankle fat contour as to age.

  • Jessica Yetter

    My third grade class loves this one!

  • Julie Cowe

    They were wearing flip-flops because they suffer from ingrown toenails but then forgot sunscreen on their feet and aren't used to wearing flip-flops and got a friction blister. Probably a pretty miserable guy now with all the sore foot problems.

  • Sara Brisby

    Holy cow, @Diana Avery dooms. I want to send you a picture of my feet and have you evaluate them! That was awesome.

Inference: Where is this girl? How do you know?

  • Jess Blatz

    This girl is underwater in a pool. I know this because she is wearing goggles, and a bathing suit, and the water is light blue and usually beach water is darker so thats how I know she is in a pool. I can also see the ladder to the right of the photo.

Inference: How is this man feeling? How do you know?

Controlling Anger: An Islamic Approach
  • Brandi Thornton

    I used this with my class today. Thanks a bunch!

  • Melissa Kay

    The picture clues tell us... (1) this guy is mad, (2) he is yelling into the phone, (3) he is wearing a dress shirt and tie, (4) it looks like he is in an office. Our background knowledge tells us... (1) somebody or something has made this guy mad. I can infer that this man is yelling at someone who did something wrong which compromised his job.

  • Bayleigh Blythe

    Duh hes really mad at some1 on the phone and judging by the time (after one) he is either frustrated that its only half way thru the day or frustrated that he had to stay at work so late

  • Jess Blatz

    The man is going to tell the girl to turn her phone off. I think he is going to say this to her because it looks as though they are in a theater and there is a policy of no cell phone use during a theatrical presentation. He also shows that he is unhappy via body language and facial expressions. Damn I am an awesome inferencer!!!

  • Olivia G.

    Like it, though that sure looks more like a man and woman than man and "girl."

  • Sowellread

    Olivia G, you made my day. :-)


    Right on, Olivia G!

  • Melissa Kay

    I see that the girl is in the theater. She is on her phone. Everyone else seems angry or annoyed. (TC). My background knowledge tells me that you can't use cell phones in theaters. It should be quiet. I infer that the manager is asking her to get off her phone.

Inference: What will this man have for breakfast tomorrow morning? What makes you think so?

Inference: What has this little girl been doing? How do you know?
