Inferring with 'The Climb'
I love the song 'The Climb' by Miley Cyrus and it was perfect for a lesson on making inferences with my 3rd graders! I played the song for them and just had them close their eyes and think about the words. Afterward, I passed out the lyrics and I modeled from the first stanza how I made meaning / inferred what Miley is singing about. My model was super short because my students caught on quick and they were highly engaged with turn and talks about the song - it was inferring heaven! My students got a good hold of what it is to infer and had fun doing it! Later on walking to lunch they were all singing the climb quietly - too cute!
