Making Inferences!!

Making Inferences is such a hard reading strategy for first graders.  Even when I taught 7th grade Reading, my seventh graders struggled with it.  So I tried to make a connection with something they were a little more familiar with and I came up with the part-part-whole model we use in math.  My kiddos have a really good grasp of how to use the part-part-whole model in math so why not use the same model for making inferneces.  So, I came up with this little comparison.  Students need to use their schema {part} plus what they read {part} to make the inference {whole}.  Pick up this little poster by clicking on the picture.  Be sure to leave me a comment and let me know what you think!!
