Writing Prompt: The boy peered through the forest, barely making out a shape ahead. It looked like an old, abandoned house of some kind. But what lay inside became the subject of the most amazing adventure ever...
Ideas for grades 1-6.
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!
Thanks for the ideas!
I can't wait to use this idea in my classroom.
These are fantastic pictures! Thank you.
Inference: Why is this man on the floor? What makes you think so?
Inference: Why isn't this woman using a fork to eat her pie? Why do you think so?
it's a pie eating contest it's when you stuff your face in pie and eat it as fast as you can
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?
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.
I think the boy feels sad.
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?
This picture was taken in the fall. I know this because the leaves are all different colors and they are on the ground.
Inference: How do you think this little boy is feeling? What makes you think so?
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?
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! :)
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.
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.
I think this guy has a parachute in his backpack.
I think he is going sky diving.
Inference: What are three things you can tell about the person who these feet belong to?
That they are possibly a red-head/celtic heritage, that they stubbed their toe and that they don't use sunblock.
My third grade class loves this one!
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.
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 are these girls? What makes you think so?
Inference: Where is this girl? How do you know?
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: What just happened? What makes you think so?
she fell and maybe is just getting back up
Inference: How is this man feeling? How do you know?
I used this with my class today. Thanks a bunch!
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.
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
Inference: What happened? What makes you think so?
Inference: How do you think these two people know each other? What makes you think so?
Inference: What are two things you can say about this little boy?
Inference: How is this girl feeling? What makes you think so?
Inference: What do you think happened here? What makes you think so?
This picture provided my students with so much to talk about! We discussed things in the positive ("Things are broken") and things in the negative (It doesn't smell good.) Thanks for your board posts!
this is from Indonesia isn't ?
Inference: What is this man going to say to this girl? Why do you think so?
Like it, though that sure looks more like a man and woman than man and "girl."
Olivia G, you made my day. :-)
Right on, Olivia G!
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.
I love how you related that to background knowledge, Melissa. Thanks, that was great role-modeling! :)
Inference: What will this man have for breakfast tomorrow morning? What makes you think so?
Inference: What do you think caused this injury? What makes you think so?
Inference: What has this little girl been doing? How do you know?
