Using Lonely Island to Teach Inference [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?

This post is a sample of my new product “Using Animated Short Films to Teach Reading Skills.” Each month one additional post from this series will go live. You can find the links and post dates listed below.

Each post will contain one animated short with a printable handout. You can collect all ten by coming back each month. The full products, divided into two parts, contain over 50 student printables each for a total of 100+. 

The printables contain organizers with guiding questions to help students evaluate the short film and learn valuable reading skills. All short films will be added to a webpage on Book Units Teacher for easy access. The link to this webpage will be included in the purchased product.

    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
