This packet includes 30 short reading comprehension passages. There are 10 very easy passages for beginners and 20 slightly harder "intermediate" passages. In each passage, students can use the evidence and their own background knowledge to make an inference. I have also included a space for students to explain how they got their answer. Some passages have more than one acceptable answer (see answer key). I recommend starting with a whole group lesson on how to make an inference, then giving this resource to provide independent practice.These could also be used in a small group for students who need more support.
