Inferring

Inferring Worksheets

Making inferences is an important reading strategy for children to learn and use. Questions that require readers to infer are sometimes referred to as ‘Author and Me’ questions. Good readers are good detectives. They combine clues from texts and images with their own knowledge to pick up clues authors leave. Practise identifying clues using our collection of inferring worksheets.
