A worksheet to use when teaching young readers how to make inferences.
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 4 short scenarios that students must read and infer what is happening based on the clues given. Then, they are asked to provide evidence to support their inference. An answer sheet has been included with the download.
Use this resource as a guided reading activity with your small groups, or use as an independent task to monitor your students’ inferencing skills.
Use the drop-down menu to choose between the PDF or the interactive Google Slide version.
Download this resource as part of a larger resource pack or Unit Plan.
Common Core Curriculum alignment
Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
