Today in reading, we worked on inferring character traits. Inference is an important skill to teach students. It is the gateway to the kind of higher-order, critical thinking students need to succeed in school and work. We did an activity on What’s Inside Miss. Gray’s Purse and what does it tell us about her? They were able to “infer” things about me by looking inside the purse! Below is a chart of what they found and what they inferred. Please be sure to discuss this activity at home.
