Free Printables to Use with Animated Shorts (Inference)

If you are looking for some high interest activities, try using animated shorts to teach reading skills. This post contains the animated short film “Lonely Island” found on Youtube and inserted in this post. 

In the accompanying handout, students will summarize, infer, and make predictions. You can download the handout here.

Animated Short

Lonely Island [2:50]

A stranded man wishes to leave a deserted island. Every time a plane passes over he tries to get the pilot’s attention. Will he get off the island?

    I love your shorts and the pages that go with them. Unfortunately, I can only get the top 2 to open, the rest give me an error message. Is there another place I can find these? Thanks
