      **Inference Bags - Put mystery items in each bag. Have students write out 6 clues about their mystery object in the bag. The clues shouldn't be obvious, but they do have to be factual. Once finished, students will read clues & make inferences about what the mystery object is.

      Inference bags. Secretly place items in a bag & then write clues on the outside of the bag. Students will guess or infer what the item is.

      Could do this with Kinder but the teacher write the clues and the students guess....Inference Bags - Put mystery items in each bag.

      Inference Bags. Students have to write descriptive sentences to help the guesser.

    Put a picture up on the document camera (National Geographic's picture of the day works well). Ask students to make five OBSERVATIONS, five INFERENCES and five PREDICTIONS. Doing this a couple of times a week will drive home the difference between these concepts. For some of my other subject area teacher friends...good idea

    genius - my kids LOVE Wordle. Now I need to remember this for a beginning of the year activity for adjectives that describe them or interests!

    Impossible Wordless film. Great for inferring right from the get go...Infer the setting, the profession of the man, what might happen, character feelings based on actions and expressions...really good.

    Great mentor texts for teaching inference.

    Mystery Box for making inferences. I could also use this when I'm talking about the mystery genre and clues!

    "Table Texting" is a fun, interactive strategy you can use with any piece of text or topic. The key is to pose a higher-level question that encourages thinking among students. Students respond to the question in writing. The teacher or facilitator collects the papers and redistributes them. Students get to read other responses and reply. The process continues until all of the speech bubbles are completed. At the end, students get to read their classmates' responses. Great for upper grades.

    Post it for every time students find figurative language in a book
