Making inferences is one of the most important reading skills. It’s crucial not only because it helps kids comprehend text, but it is a key aspect of many other reading strategies. Using great picture books, we will talk about how we take all of our background knowledge and our experiences called our schema and combine this with clues from the text. These two things together, the text plus our schema, help us make an inference, which allows us to more fully understand the meaning of the text. In order to teach this, I’m in need of some of the finest picture books this planet has to offer. Picture books are about one of the best ways we can teach inferencing in the classrooms. By using picture books as mentor texts, I am providing my students rich, engaging stories that they WANT to read. Through these stories, I am able to teach kids not only inferencing, but also critical, life-long reading skills such as theme, context clues, summarizing the main idea, text evidence, and much, much, more.
