Make 3 inferences from the text and support them with evidence.
One Inference I could make was that their family was not very wealthy. I can prove this with the sentence from the text, "I decided that you’re old to watch Junior this summer because I’m going to start working again." (Hansen 1) This proves my point because she is having to work over the summer to get extra money.
Another Inference I was able to make was that this story took place in the '60s or '50s. I can prove this with text such as "practicing for the annual double-dutch contest, which we would definitely win: going to the roller skating rink, the swimming pool, the best, and sleeping as late in the morning as I wanted to." (Hansen 1) This proves my text because an average 13-year-old girl now, wouldn't look forward to going outside. (This is just one piece of evidence, there are many others in the text.)
My last inference was, I can make I inference that she was upset about babysitting Jr. I can prove this with this piece of evidence. "Shut up, Junior. I don’t feel like hearing about some television show. It’s too early in the morning.” Her tone implies that she is upset about babysitting him. (Hansen 2)
