Good Readers Infer

We've been focusing on making inferences.  This weeks mini lesson has been, "Good readers infer.  They look for clues and make conclusions on what they know.

I introduced this work with "What's Inside the Egg?"

Today, I read Bark George by Jules Feiffer.  I told the kids this dog made funny sounds and by looking for clues while reading they should be able to make a prediction of what type of noise George would make next.  The kids LOVED this book!!

While I read, I wrote down what they thought would happen.

At the end of the story, George says "Hello."  The kids had to infer who he had eaten.

I had them complete a worksheet inferring who George might eat next.


  1. Great lesson! I love this book! Thanks for sharing!
