Each of 24 inference cards features a short passage with a text-dependent question. Students must not only infer, but also justify their responses.
Perfect for test prep. Use 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. An answer key is also included. In addition, there is an inference poster, a cover/label card, and a challenge card that can be used with any other card in the set to extend the activity.
There is also a Challenge Card that can be used in conjunction with any other card to extend the activity. These task cards are perfect for test prep and will work well at literacy centers, stations, for partner work, or with the whole class using a game like Scoot.
Contents of this set include:
• Directions and Suggestions
• 24 Task Cards
• Challenge Card
• Student Answer Sheets
• Answer Key
What teachers have said about this resource:
♥ I have had such a hard time finding inference activities for small groups or individual students...this is perfect! The students can discuss, they have to justify their reasoning, and their ability to make inferences is strengthened through this practice. Thank you!!!!
♥ Absolutely love these! Taught using a few each day when teaching inferences skill then used one or two occasionally to review as "bell" work as the kids entered my classroom each day. Interesting to see/hear what the kids inferred on some - more than one inference possible on some which encouraged debate using text details to support inference.
♥The rigor of these cards is perfect for where my kiddos are right now. They "get" just enough on their own to feel successful, but there is certainly enough meat to really make most of my students think.
Common Core Standards addressed in this set:
