Inferences Activities – Free Samples


Inferences or implied meaning in language is a difficult but critical skill for students to master as they encounter tasks that require higher order language skills.   In fact, teaching students how to manage these tricky abstract concepts can be very challenging.  Come to my blog where you can download a free sample of my making inference activities that make the process both fun and memorable.

Susan Berkowitz's Free Summer Communication Calendar #2

Are you afraid the summer language fun calendar I gave you last week isn’t going to be enough?  Do you have parents - and kids - who want more language fun for the summer?


With themes like Remember Monday, Telling Tuesday, and Wacky Wednesday, there are language tasks for every child.  And of course, each activity can be easily tailored to the individual’s skills and abilities.  

So send them off for summer knowing they’ll continue to get language practice they need.  Have a great summer!




Creating a Character Sketch with The Gollywhopper Games



Good writers show instead of tell what their characters are like.  The Gollywhopper Games is a fun book to read aloud and analyze the characters.  I have created a graphic organizer to help students analyze the characters by what they say and do.  This graphic organizer may be used with any book.

Reading Surveys

Hello everyone. I hope you're enjoying a relaxing summer.

I take the time to plan and prep for the following school year during the summer. One of the things I do is look thru the books I have and begin to think of the new books I want to use for the following year.

I will give a reading interest survey to my students when school starts to make sure that I have books in my classroom library that children enjoy reading.

I created this quick and easy to administer reading survey for early primary grades.
