Google Slide, PDF | 2 pages | Grades: 1 - 3

Boost reading comprehension with our 2-page writing worksheet that helps students practice making inferences.

Using this worksheet, students will build their inferencing skills—in other words, they’ll draw conclusions by decoding the context clues in 6 sample texts. 

This worksheet is best used as independent practice as part of your Reading Comprehension Strategies Lesson. It can also be completed with a guided small group, done as a whole class activity by projecting the worksheet via smartboard, or turned into a reading station activity.

Scaffolding for Struggling Students
