Making Inferences with a Movie Short

Using movie shorts in the classroom can be very engaging. Guide your students to make inferences using a Pixar short. The post includes two free graphic organizers to help your students! Perfect to use for any book or video.


The Gruffalo

Great for teaching visualization - students use a clipboard and paper divided into four sections. Cover the pictures as you read so the students cannot see what the Gruffalo looks like. Have the students draw how they think the Gruffalo look like as you read the story. Once the students finish, read the story to the children again but this time showing them the pictures so they could see if their visualization was close to the pictures.
