Week 5 Literacy – Inferring

This week our comprehension focus has been on inferring. Inferring is an important skill to have to understand what we read better. Sometimes the author doesn’t tell you exactly what is going on and the reader has to put all the clues together to understand what is going on.

Our class have been reading inferring cards and making inferences from them.

An example is:

Ana and Sophie sat in their chairs staring straight ahead for nearly two hours. They did not talk or hardly even move, but they were not bored at all.

Where were Ana and Sophie?

What makes you think so?

Students then write their inferences using this sentence structure: I infer that… because…

Can you infer where Ana and Sophie were?

In Literacy this week we have been learning to infer. Inferring is like being a detective. You have to use clues from the text, picture and your background knowledge to infer or ‘read between the lines’ to understand what is not written.
