Inferencing Freebie and Linky Party

I feel like I haven't blogged in about a million years.

Probably because it has been about a million years.

But that's not why you're here, is it? You want that inferencing freebie. :)

We've been talking about inferencing, and I've been using Tanny McGregor's Comprehension Connections. Do you KNOW how FABULOSO this is, peeps? Go get it. Now. I have never used so much music in my teaching before. I love it. She also has a wordless picture books lesson for each reading strategy, Fabulousness, right?

I've really worked hard to make sure the kids are using the "thinking stems" in our discussions and I wanted to make sure this continued when they were working independently.

I'm also introducing suffixes in my Skills Block and everything has started to feel really separated. Yucko. I feel like lessons are so much more successful when my workshops are "seamless." So I brainstormed.

This is what I came up with:

Marvelous Lesson What do you think? For the rest of the suffix unit, including a super-cute game you can visit my TpT store!

If you've already purchased this unit, I'm updating the file now! Or, you can download the extra pages from the Scribd site. :)

As an extra challenge, I'd love to try my first linky party! If you have an inferencing lesson you'd like to share, link up! Remember to link directly to your post and not just to your blog.

Happy Monday!


  1. I bought the book Comprehension Connections based on your recommendation. I love it! I read it all this morning. I can't wait to teach my inference lesson on Monday based on the book and we'll finish the lesson with your poem. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I'm so glad you bought the book and loved it. It really is one of my cornerstone teaching texts.
