    Making inferences can be difficult for some young readers. When teaching the comprehension strategy of inferring, it’s important to make it visual for students to understand the inferring process.

    Inferential understanding and “reading between the lines” can lead students to think beyond the text and reflect on their thinking.

    This bundle includes…

    **printables that will make this comprehension strategy visible as they learn and
    practice how to infer within their reading.

    • anchor charts (letter-sized & 2 to choose from depending on the language of inferring you use in your classroom
    • Inferring Think Sheets for students to practice and track their inferences as they read independently
    • Reader’s Notebook visuals for students to glue into their Reader’s Notebook as a visible reminder of the inferring process
    • Inferring Bookmarks for students to use as Think Sheets and/or visible reminders of the inferring process.

    **Also included are minilessons to build and develop the strategy of inferring.
    Minilessons follow the Connect, Teach, Active Engagement and Link structure.
