Inferencing is something a lot of my students need to work on but unfortunately I can’t target it everyday. So, I decided to come up with a way to target it every day for all my kids and even the kids who just walked by my room.
This packet has 52 weeks of inferencing items! By using your bulletin board to post clues each day, you will be engaging your students and turning them into inferencing detectives!
Put the headings up on your bulletin board or wall. You can put them in any order but mine are in category, appearance, parts, and location.
Each clue has a magnifying glass with a letter to let you know which clue it is used for. They are color coded and can be used with the Expanding Expressions Tool (EET) if you want. If not, they simply coordinate with the headings for each clue. There are 4 clues for each item and one blank clue page for you to customize if you want. On Monday put up your first clue. Continue adding clues thru Thursday. Friday is the big reveal where you post the mystery item.
There is a monthly suggestion page with a few ideas of which items to use during which months. If you are using a bulletin board that is outside your room you may want to keep a jar, bowl, or can by your board. Keep some slips of paper and pencil next to it so all students can write down what they think the mystery item is. At the end of the week, choose a slip of paper and that student can earn a prize or a special note home.
