Inferring with Frank!

We haven't yet gotten into that hard skill of drawing conclusions and making inferences. I don't know about y'all, but that's always a tough one in my classroom. Sooo I made a little introduction activity that we did last week to kinda preview this skill. We created a Frankenstein and made inferences about what some of his favorite things were. The main thing I wanted to get across to my kids was that you used clues that you were given (like the fact that Frank was a Halloween symbol) to decide the answer. I didn't go too far with this skill, but I welcomed the chance to have the time to do a mini introduce lesson for it. Hopefully when this skill comes around in a few weeks, my darlings will have an easier time with it. 



***I left the pattern for Frank at school, so I can't upload it now, but if you want it let me know and I'll upload tomorrow!

*** 10/6/12: This freebie can be found in my TpT store by clicking here! :)
