This book is hilarious and is perfect for students to infer their way to a conclusion at the end of the story (which is usually the wrong conclusion!).
I started the week with an anchor chart from my soon to be released Anchor Chart Toolkit for Comprehension Skills (this will be a companion to my Anchor Chart Toolkit for Comprehension Strategies).
We worked on making inferences last week, and how they help us draw logical conclusions. As I read the book, students had to take notes on clues that would help them draw a conclusion at the end of the story. Before I read (or students could read) the final few pages, they had to complete a drawing conclusions graphic organizer.

I would love to know what mentor text are your favorites and books that you use for drawing conclusions!
