Making Inferences


When students read, they need to use details from the text and prior knowledge to form new ideas. This lesson will help your students learn to make inferences as they read fiction and nonfiction. The Making Inferences lesson includes a definition, an explanation of how the skill is used, an example, and practice questions with excerpts from real books.

Product Description

Created for grades 4–8, the Toolkit of Reading features quick, clear lessons on all the critical skills students need to understand complex texts, including new skills emphasized in the Common Core State Standards. These engaging resources, available as downloadable PDFs, define key terms, describe how and why the skills are important to readers, and provide a series of activities to encourage mastery. These lessons can kick off a reading lesson or serve as an impromptu refresher of skills already introduced.
