Inferencing Lessons Can Come From Anywhere, and I Mean ANYWHERE!
So in the midst of ISAT craziness this week. We had a moment I am going to make a writing inferencing lesson next week! All of our students loved the snack mix we had for testing breaks this week. We had it in this nice container I got from Wal-Mart that has a spout for easy pour. Today as the SLP was replenishing it, I hear a "crash". The lid had popped off and the container hit the floor and the above mess is what we were left with. In our "go figure, only us" thought process we think, "we need to take a picture of this". Why? Because sometimes we need proof of how messed up our days can get that's why! LOL After I took a picture, I thought you know this would be really good if we don't tell the students what happened to it and just say it disappeared. Then next week when we get back to regular schedule, I will use the picture as a writing prompt. "What do you think happened here?" I figured it would be a great way for the students to be creative and they can connect/relate to it because they will recognize it!
