What educators are saying

This was a perfect resource to add to the lesson. I was the perfect length to engage the students but not overwhelm them.
Inferencing is such an important skill, and any resource that helps my students understand the concept of inferencing and going "beyond the text" is incredibly beneficial!


Are your students struggling with making inferences? If you need an engaging activity that your students will actually enjoy, these Inferring Task Cards are just what you're looking for! Each card in this set of 24 has a short, relatable passage and a text-dependent question that gets your students to practice inferring.

Need differentiated practice? Two ways of digitally providing your students with ⭐oral admin⭐ are included. No more running around the room trying to provide accommodations!

What You'll Get:

✅ Print:

  • Set of 24 Inferring Task Cards (color and black & white versions)
  • Student Recording Sheet
  • Answer Key

✅ Digital Options:

  • Boom Cards ⭐with AND without Optional Oral Admin⭐ - These inferring Boom Cards provide optional oral administration of each question and answer choice. Play them on Smart Boards, computers, and tablets. See the free, playable preview to try them out! Not interested in the oral admin component? No worries. There's a version without it as well.
