Teachers have spoken out about this resource.

I’ve had so much trouble finding activities that infer to small groups or for individual students. This solution is perfect! This practice allows students to discuss and to explain their reasoning. It also strengthens their ability to infer. We are grateful!We are grateful!

-Rebecca G.

These are amazing! These were great for teaching inferences skills. I then used some to review the work and use one or two as “bell” work when students entered my class each day. It was interesting to hear/see what the children inferred about some. There were multiple inferences possible on some, which encouraged discussion using text details to support each inference. -Christina L.

This card’s rigor is ideal for my children right now. They are able to “get” enough for success on their own but I have enough meat for most of my students to think.-Wendy L.


This set addresses the Common Core Standards:
