Teaching Inference using Fun, Concrete Examples for Reading Comprehension

Once again, reading comprehension is that part of reading that seems to be the last frontier. We all need to make sure that we are presenting all of the components of reading comprehension if we expect students to fully understand what they are reading.

Teaching students how to use their schema plus evidence in a story to form an inference can actually be a lot of fun. Take a look at two examples of how you can do this!

Open up!

I would LOVE to hear how you use your creativity when teaching students how to inference!! Please Share!!!

I have a question. Are you reading something wonderful right now? I’m reading The Boy Who Was Raised As a Dog, by Bruce Perry in preparation of his presentation at Butler University in Indianapolis, IN. Although I’ve just started it, I am already gaining some insights on what some children have had to endure and what kinds of things can be done to give these children of trauma and their families hope.

I’m always looking for great books, so please let me know your new favorite book. I did just finish Wonder and couldn’t stop crying during the final pages so now I need to see the movie!

Happy reading and hope you are surviving January!

You take care and I’ll see you next time!

Carla
