Birthday Invitation - Inferencing Activity

Free | 4 pages|Grades: 1 - 3| Bilingual English/Spanish

A task to use when teaching your young readers how to infer.

Inferring is a valuable skill for students to apply when engaging with and responding to texts.  However, it can be a tricky skill, especially  for  young readers.

This activity provides a birthday invitation and a series of  questions that will prompt the students to make inferences based on specific items said on the invitation. Then, they must provide the clues they used to make their inference.

Either project the invitation on your screen and go through the activity together as a class, or use as an independent task to monitor your students’ inferencing skills. This even makes a great guided reading activity to use with your small groups!

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the English or Spanish PDF or the interactive Google Slide version.
