Inferencing words

I wonder if someone has an activity for teaching how to infer words. I'm having great deal of problems with this. I need an activity or lesson, or something. HELP!

I teach in a classroom where none of my children really know Spanish with the exception of the typicals (adios, hola, etc.) So, I read the book, Skippy Jon Jonesi. It was perfect for inferring the meaning of unknown words and they learned some Spanish at the same time!

I just picked up the book, Where Are You Going, Manyoni last night from the library, but honestly haven't read it yet. Abuela is another book that I read was good for inferring.

First I do lessons on background knowledge because I explain that an inference is background knowledge plus clues from the book. I write it as an equation (BK + clues = inference)

I start by showing newspaper photos and we discuss what inferences we can make from the picture. This is something I work on a lot over time.
