100 Powerful Learning Specialist and Educational Therapy Materials

Here are four activities that you can do to help even the youngest of learners find joy in searching for inferences. Look through magazine images and see if you can uncover any hidden messages. When traveling look at billboards and see if you can point out any inferences. Look at the images on book covers and see what kind of hidden messages they might include that tell you a little bit about the story. When watching TV pay attention to the advertisements. What kinds of secret messages are implied? If you would prefer to use a 60 page workbook, with images, activities and games, you can always pur
