Read, Animals Should Definitely Not Wear Clothing. Don’t share pictures until after you talk about what you know about each animal and what he/she should not be wearing. Students infer with you throughout the book. Day 2: Use prior knowledge and information from text to make inferences. Everyone has their own experiences and so not everyone will understand the story the same way. Introduce the book, Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People’s Ears. Explain that the characters make inferences based on another character’s actions. There is a red bird on each page. We, the readers will pretend to be the red bird and explain to each character how the inference they made was incorrect. First you see the python made an inference about the way the iguana treated him. Iguana did not talk to him, so, python thinks that iguana is mad at him and planning mischief. So, as the red bird we need to explain to Python what was really going on. Day 3: Readers interpret to enrich and deepen their experience in a text.
