This can be used for Homeschool students, 3rd-5th grade.
Includes: PDF, 11 (32 task cards) + blackline versions
These 32 task cards with story-drawing conclusions are great for practicing inference, which is one of the more difficult reading strategies. These cards are ideal for test preparation because they have multiple choices. These cards can be used individually by students at a center, or in pairs. The cards can be used with the entire class for the game, SCOOT. The answer key is also included so that students can correct their answers. If you want to add an extra challenge, I have also included a “Challenge Card” which asks students to explain their reasoning for each card.
Blackline versions are also available for printing on colored papers.
***********There is also a digital version using TpT’s new digital tool (added September 2020). After purchase, click the white “Open as Digital Activity” button. This will open an online version you can use in Google Classroom. The highlight tool can be used by students to choose their answers. You can either edit the digital overlay (for instance, add answer boxes to students to explain what they know) or just use it as-is.***********
