    I am working on a lesson to teach my students how to infer, but I'm not sure what the best mentor text to use is. I know there are so many out there, but I want a great one to introduce this tough concept. What are some of your favorites that you use?

    I like introducing the topic with wordless books. David Wiesner is always a good choice, and no matter what grade level you teach, there will be something from his collection that would be appropriate.

    Thank you. That is actually what I was thinking. I was thinking about using the book Tuesday.

    I've used Miss Nelson is Missing!--the kids love looking back at the pictures and text for clues.
