In our 1st-3rd grade groups we have been practicing inferencing! We are practicing inferencing with pictures and discuss observing details in description and paying close attention to important detail. We point out unimportant details too, just to practice process of elimination ;). Some vocab we use is "I notice" and "I observe" based on what they may already know. This line of thinking will transfer over to text, but it's easier to start with pictures!
RL. 1, RIT.1: ask and answer questions about key details, make logical inferences, draw conclusions based on evidence.
