The Inferring Song Poster

PDF | 1 page|Grades: 2 - 6

A fabulous song to use when learning about inference.

Display this poster in your classroom to remind students how to apply this comprehension strategy.

The Inferring Song is sung to the tune of Baa, Baa, Black Sheep.

Infer, infer, that’s what you can do
Sometimes answers aren’t in front of you
Use your memory, ideas in your brain,
Search for clues here and there
And use your head again.

This song is perfect to use in conjunction with other inferring teaching resources such as the Viewing Response Template or our See, Think, Wonder Template.
