• Goals: To use our inferential comprehension skills to make inferences about what is in each mystery bag To explain the

reasoning behind our inferences • Success criteria: - Make an inference about what is in each bag - Use the language of explanation (such as ‘because…’) to explain the reasoning behind our inferences - Use the two written clues, our prior knowledge and our senses to make inferences.

The CAFÉ strategy we are currently practising is “Infer and Support with Evidence”. In today’s reading session we used our prior knowledge, our senses and text clues to make inferences about what each Mystery Bag contained. There were eight mystery bags, each with a mystery item inside. On the front of the bag were two clues.

Using text clues…

Mystery Bag #1

Mystery Bag # 2

Mystery Bag #3

Mystery Bag #4

Mystery Bag #5

Mystery Bag #6

Mystery Bag #7

Mystery Bag #8

Using our senses…

What was in the mystery bags?

We shared our inferences with a partner…

…then opened them to find out!
