Now there is no way I could have even conceived an iota of this idea without my favorite books and websites.
The Reading Lady and the Mosaic Listserv have some very good mini lessons and posters that are very helpful, too. Mandy Gregory has a whole UNIT of mini lessons and possible books to be used throughout the unit. I'm trying out some of her awesome worksheets that are downloadable (scroll all the way down). On that note, happy inferring! Oh, and happy New Year!
