Making inferences is such an important reading comprehension skill but can sometimes be hard for young learners to grasp. This interactive PowerPoint introduction and engaging follow-up activities not only make teaching inferencing effective, but also FUN!
If you like my best-selling Decoding Strategies packs, you will LOVE this Comprehension Strategy pack! It has everything you need to teach and reinforce the Making Inferences comprehension skill in a fun, exciting way!!
In keeping with my character packs, this one has an Inferring Iguana to help make the strategy more memorable and engaging, but I also included posters and materials without the iguana as an option.
