Inference is such a tricky skill to master, but these 24 cards can help! Use them orally in small groups, or individually as a writing assignment at a literacy center. Another option is to use one card at a time with the entire class. Students can answer on notebook paper and track the cards they have completed on the included Recording Sheet. Alternatively, student Answer Sheets are provided. An Answer Key is also included. In addition there is an inference poster, and a Challenge Card that can be used with any other card in the set to extend the activity.
Black Line versions of the cards are included for printing on colored paper.
