St. Patrick's Day Inferencing Activities

Hello! Sarah here from Sarah's Snippets. I might have mentioned before,that I am a big fan of St. Patrick's Day! I don't think you need to be Irish to love this holiday. ;)  When I taught first grade, I loved having a little "treasure hunt" with my students. The kids would come in the classroom in the morning to a trail of green glitter. On the white board is the first clue. We spend the morning reading the clues and making inferences to figure out where the next clue is. It's a lot of fun! At the end of the hunt, there was a pot filled with leprechaun pencils and a gold chocolate coin. 



Each student has a student sheet to record their inference and the text clues that led them to that inference. (We fill that part out afterward.)

Here's another inferencing activity that I still get to do with my reading groups. :) I give each student a card to read. They use their strategies to decode the words. Then they read it a second time, looking for clues to lead them to their inference about where that leprechaun's gold is hidden. 


Then each student reads their card to the group. This year, we filled out this chart together instead of doing the individual student worksheets.  Most of them could easily guess where the gold was hidden, but they had a hard time articulating how they knew. This was a great activity to practice looking for text clues. They really enjoyed it too!


I've created another treasure hunt that I can do with my reading groups on St. Patrick's Day (without having to go around the school). I found these pieces of fake gold, so I had to find a way to use them.

 :) I "hid" them around the room. Before looking, we read the cards and made our inferences about where the gold was. Then we had fun looking in each spot for the gold.

  1. A single person might affect the overall productivity of the team and might make the team members skeptical about being in a team henceforth. Thus, before such a situation reaches to that extreme stage, a couple of well devised corporate team building activities should be organized to improve the team.

  3. To the casual fan, it might not sound a particularly significant development. On Wednesday, at their rather stuffy monthly meeting, the Nevada State Athletic Commission granted both Conor McGregor vs Floyd Mayweather an exemption to fight in 8oz – rather than 10oz – boxing gloves.

  4. American Made 2017 Full Movie Watch Online, American Made is a 2017 American biographical crime film directed by Doug Liman, written by Gary Spinelli and starring Tom Cruise.

    Watch American Made full Movie 2017 is more interesting as a showcase for the dateless elasticity of Cruise’s star power. It feels, for better or worse, like a film he could have made at almost any point in the last 30 years.

    American Made 2017 movie isn’t a major breakthrough, but it still feels like a career progression for Cruise simply by handing him an intriguing role: Adler Berriman “Barry” Seal, prime mover in one of those just-declassified, you-couldn’t-make-it-up stories that sporadically fall into the hands of grateful producers.

    Watch American Made Online also offers some parallels to fictional Tom Cruise projects. We've seen the star have some other airplane trouble recently in The Mummy and Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Meanwhile, American Made's trailer features a scene almost identical to one in last year's Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. In both, Cruise plays a character who is able to successfully taunt police officers with the knowledge that they're going to have to let him go.

    Next month, Tom Cruise is reteaming with his Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman for American Made. Based on a true story, the film finds the three-time Academy Award nominee playing the part of Barry Seal, a pilot-turned-drug runner who, in 1984, was recruited to be an undercover CIA informant for one of the biggest drug busts in history. While Seal may not be one of the most virtuous of real life figures, Cruise says that it was Seal's incredible true story that was just too interesting to pass up. Cruise said.
