Product Description
These tasks cards were developed so that children can make inferences based on experiences they have either had themselves, seen others do, or have read in books. These cards also embed the use of context clues (key words). I realize that not all children have the same experiences, so I did my best to come up with scenarios that are “common” or could be easily generalized. Inference scenarios focus around home, school and community themes. The blue cards provide children with a choice of three possible answers. An answer key is provided with the most logical response. The yellow cards provide the same scenarios as the blue cards, however they are open ended and do not provide choices. An answer key is not provided for the yellow cards, as any logical inference would be an acceptable answer. Children should be able to justify their responses.

EXPAND: These cards were also designed to expand conversation. Since most of the tasks cards are based around common scenarios, you can easily engage the students in conversation by tapping into their prior knowledge and engaging in meaningful conversations.

Using Prior Knowledge and context clues along knowing how to make inferences are key ingredients to reading comprehension.
