Reading Comprehension - Inference Day 1
READING COMPREHENSION FOCUS - INFERENCE - DAY 1
Inference is when you pick up ideas from the text that are not always written in the text itself. You’re not looking for what is there – you’re looking for what is meant by it.
Load up and read through the PowerPoint below. This will introduce you to "Inference Iggy" and the type of questions he will be asking you after you read each short piece of text over the next 4 days.
There are 2 PowerPoints and 2 tasks below. One is aimed at Year 2 and the other for Year 3. You can choose your own level of difficulty ... or even do both if you prefer.
Once you have read the short piece of text, complete the questions. The answers are on the last sheet ... so no cheating! You can use the answers to double-check your work at the end.
