Drawing Conclusion Eddy Ortega Alyssa Perez Brian Cardenas Alexis Torres Hai Q. Lui The true story of the 3 little pigs.
A conclusion is a general statement supported by reasoning and detail. A conclusion is not stated in the text. Drawing conclusion involves a complete set of prior knowledge and making educated guesses. To draw conclusions, readers apply their own background knowledge with details in the text to make understandable conclusions about events, main ideals, or the author’s point of view.
How to teach it
Explain that drawing conclusions is like solving a mystery. Try to act like a detective trying to solve a mystery by deciding which facts or details are important. Also to use your filing cabinet and remember your past experience to come up with a sound conclusion. Make sure to tell students to have enough accurate information to avoid making over generalized or unsupported conclusions .
Explain to the kid “ what is drawing conclusions?”
Read the book
Graphic organizer Direction: With the details given to you from the story, try to come up with a conclusion of you own. What can you conclude? Details The wolf likes to eat pigs.
“ I cant let a perfectly good ham to stay there in the straw.”
“ Everyone knows that you cant leave ham out or it will spoil.”
The wolf thought that he was not doing anything wrong.
The wolf said “ I don’t know how the big bad wolf thing all started. It was all wrong.”
“ I was framed”
We are going to let the kids make there own masks and after they are going to act out the story.
First, we are going to distribute the materials to the students and explain the directions to them.
Then, the students are going to make their own masks.(1 wolf and 3 pigs.)
Finally, when they are done making the mask, we will let the students act out the story.
Huffing: to puff or blow.
Puffing: To blow.
Straw: Material used to make straw hats.

Doornail: What keeps the door in place.
***Kids will also be able to solve a word search for these vocabulary words.
How do you teach this skill? “By teaching it and having the kids respond back explaining the concept”
What graphic organizer would you use? “K.W.L. Chart.”
What advice can you give me for my project? “Always keep them active. Keep them working not have them bored”
This skill lesson I worked on today was drawing conclusion. One thing I understand better is how to teach it. This skill will help me be a better reader because I would draw conclusions way faster than before. I am going to remember how to use this skill by when I begin to read a book. One piece of advice I would give to someone working with this skill is focus on the story and pay attention to all the details in the story. In order to improve I will need to include determination, importance, and activate prior knowledge. One more thing I want you to know is explain that drawing conclusions is like solving a mystery .
