I've finally posted my newest creation-"Inferential and Problem-Solving Language Activity Pack." I've always struggled teaching in this area. In the district that I teach, so many of my students have trouble with these skills and practicing them during a 30 minute session of speech is difficult. Sooo... I've been hard at work for weeks on this newest activity to help in this area and finally posted it to my TPT store! Hope you will find it as helpful as I did! I will be giving this activity pack away for FREE, yes that's right-free to the first 5 people who comment and let me know 1. how they teach inferencing skills to their kiddos and 2. include your email where I can send it. I can't wait to hear your ideas!
Contains 1 set (24 cards) of "Take off the Disguise!" cards. Student is read a quote and must make an inference as to who would say it. Example: "Bring your dog back in three days" would be “veterinarian.”
Contains 1 set (24 cards) of "Take the Next Step" cards. Student is read a card stating a situation and must predict what would happen next. Also great for cause and effect goals! Example: "You spend time with a friend who has a cold." A possible outcome would be that you would get sick as well.
Contains 1 set (12 cards) of "Uncover the Mystery" cards. Student is read a multiple-choice riddle and must use humor and multiple-meaning words to figure it out. Example: "What does a dog do that boys wear? -pants, walks, shirt (pants would be the correct answer).
1 set (30 cards) of "Who Can Answer the Fastest?" cards. A fun version of the game "20 questions." Students are given 3 clues about a person, place or thing and must answer first to receive the card. For example "thing, bubble, sweet" would be "gum."
5 "Look for the Difference" worksheets. Students compare and answer inferential questions about objects.
This unit has it all! Best of all, it can be played multiple ways and will have your kiddos laughing and having fun while using their brains! Please feel free to contact me with any questions!
