You’ve arrived at “Super Sleuth Blog Hop” stop #14! 

If you’re JUST starting the blog hop, you may want to consider going back to the beginning so you can collect all the clues starting at the first blog, Comprehension Connection. You also have the option of starting here and then going back to the beginning blogs after you reach the end.

If you haven’t done so already, please download your Super Sleuth Blog Hop Form by clicking the link below:

Super Sleuths Blog Hop Form

You’ll need this for keeping track of the blogs you visit and for recording the letter clues you collect. This form will help you figure out the final mystery message so you can enter to win fabulous prizes at the end!

Blog Hop Overview:

  • 28 literacy-focused blogs have teamed up for this event! At each blog stop, you will collect FREE literacy resources and a letter that will help you solve a mystery on your last hop.
  • If you become lost or need to take a break during your “case,” you can locate the blog buttons at the very end of each post or go back to the first stop, Comprehension Connection.
  • While you are trying to crack the “case”, it may be wise to take notes.  You can use the form for assistance. (HINT: The answer to the “case” is a famous quote.)
  • You will only have from Friday, October 25th at 8:00 AM EST until Monday, October 28th at 8:00 AM EST to solve the mystery.  After Monday at 8:00 AM EST, all case materials will close and many of the free product links will send you to paid items on Teachers Pay Teachers or Teacher’s Notebook.

SUPER SLEUTH FACT FILE:

What is “Making Inferences”?

Making inferences is when students draw conclusions from the text using the text clues and their background knowledge. Essentially, students are trying to figure out what the author doesn’t explicitly tell them in the text. It’s a higher-level thinking skill and involves “thinking beyond the text.”

SUPER SLEUTH FREEBIE:

“Reading Detectives: A Focus on Making Inferences”

(Part of my Reading Hats for Comprehension Strategy Series)

ReadingDetective1

(NOTE: Starting Monday, 10/28/13 at 8:00 AM (EST), this product will be turned back into a paid product in my TpT store!)

As “Reading Detectives,” students will have to search for clues and information from the text to use as evidence. After collecting the evidence, they will have to connect it with what they already know to draw conclusions about the text. Students use their detective skills to fill-in the missing pieces, make inferences, and understand the “Big Picture” of a story.

Using reference materials, discussion cards, and an original “I’m a Reading Detective!” strategy poem, students will love putting on their “detective hats” to practice making inferences!
