Illustration Gallery by ManyPixels. The Inference Collection - Once Upon a Picture. Inference is a tricky area of reading.
Children don’t always understand what it means to infer, and stumble on test questions demanding this of them. I’ve found that teaching the skill explicitly using a non-threatening stimulus has worked brilliantly. First, you develop the understanding of the skill, what is involved and what is required to answer questions. Then this is practised, and practised some more (justifying inferences, anyone?)
, before being applied to text. Here are some of my favourites for developing inference in the primary classroom. Mixkit - Royalty Free HD Videos and Illustrations.

Improving the students’ organisational skills and getting them ready to write a well-rounded description of a painting are the main goals of this activity which was originally part of a longer unit around the topics of reading and literature.
I first chose six classical paintings in which someone is reading a book. The paintings are hidden behind black squares (see PowerPoint file below) and are progressively displayed square by square to draw the students’ attention to each part of the painting. The idea here is to encourage active conversations in which the students make predictions about the books, the people and the places, and the relationship between the main elements in each painting, as they are gradually revealed.
Descriptive vocabulary such as “at the top” or “in the bottom left-hand corner” can also be introduced or revised at this point. Paintings.ppt All images are Public Domain Like this: Like Loading...

If you can’t concentrate while working at a standing desk, it’s probably because your primal brain is subconsciously making eye-friends with all your coworkers. We have evolved to do this because being attuned to others’ emotions is essential for creating and sustaining social bonds. As social creatures, our happiness and development depends on our relationships—and not being eaten by a mountain lion depends on being attuned to angry, potentially threatening foes. Humans have therefore evolved to absorb the emotions displayed by those around us through facial expressions, body language, and vocal tones, and then mimic those feeling in our own expressions. “What people often don’t realize is that our emotions are communicated interpersonally, and they’re contagious,” says Mary Lamia, a psychologist and author of the upcoming book, What Motivates Getting Things Done: Procrastination, Emotions, and Success. So, what to do? 40 Intriguing Photos to Make Students Think.
Slide Show After combing through four years of images from our popular What’s Going On in This Picture?
Feature, we selected 40 photographs to highlight in this slide show. Many of these are our most commented-on images — some attracting nearly a thousand student comments. Others are simply our favorites. We invite teachers and students to use this bank of 40 intriguing images, all stripped of their captions or context, to practice visual thinking and close reading skills by holding a “What’s Going On in This Picture?” Or, use any of the ideas we suggest in this lesson plan on using our new Picture Prompt feature and other Times images to get students writing, thinking, speaking and listening.
We started this feature during the 2012-13 school year with the simple idea of taking interesting photos from The Times and asking students to look closely and describe what they see.
