The Lemonade War Book Club Focused on Making Inferences & Drawing Conclusions

The end to summer vacation turns sour when Jessie’s big brother, Evan, suddenly wants nothing to do with her. Evan just found out that his little sister will be skipping a grade and has been placed in his classroom for the up-coming school year. Instead of talking about what is really going on, the two begin to battle over making the most money selling lemonade. The struggle for understanding between these two siblings makes The Lemonade War perfect for a Book Club focused on making inferences to deepen comprehension.

Book Club resources

The management resources include a Book Club Calendar, conversation prompts, Student Self-Evaluation forms, Reading Response Board (with optional Common Core alignment), and an Expectations for Book Club anchor chart.

The instructional overview includes instructional background for making inferences, instructional objectives for each of the Book Club meetings, and a list of the materials and preparation necessary to host the The Lemonade War Book Club.

Open the The Lemonade War Book Club with an introduction to making inferences. Through the use of real-life examples and an anchor chart, this meeting sets the stage for the making inferences work students will complete over the course of this Book Club.

Author Jacqueline Davies provides ample opportunities for readers to make inferences in order to understand the relationship between Evan and Jessie. Students will learn to attend to the characters' thoughts, dialogue, and actions for clues that will help them make logical inferences about what is happening.

Making inferences not only helps the reader understand the characters and events of the story better, they also allow the reader to make logical predictions about what might happen next. This The Lemonade War Book Club meeting encourages the use of a graphic organizer to help students track both their inferences and predictions as they read.

This final meeting for Jacqueline Davies' The Lemonade War provides time for students to reflect on how the inferences they made while reading helped them understand and enjoy the story more. The culminating activity encourages students to use what they know about the characters to infer the next chapter in the story.

Use this six-question assessment to determine whether or not students understand the key concepts associated with making inferences.
