Making Inferences in Fiction

An important step in the reading process is making inferences based on background knowledge of a text. Older students who make inferences on fictional texts or images show that they are thinking deeper about the material. The resource center has dozens of engaging and challenging guided lessons, thoughtful workbooks and more so students can learn to make predictions, draw conclusions and think critically.

Thinking Critically: Resources on Making Inferences of Fictional Texts

Getting students to do their homework is one thing, getting students to think is another. The Learning Library’s sources on making inferences on fictional texts provide tools such as polished printable worksheets, enticing hands-on activities and extensive workbooks. The inference lessons promote a better understanding of materials and a better appreciation for them as well.

There are eight comprehensive printable workbooks for fourth and fifth graders such as Peter Pan and Neverland and Asian Mythology. The popular courses teach kids how to interpret famous stories and how to draw their own conclusions about their messages.

For one-off lessons, educators and parents can choose from a selection of printable worksheets that were created by skilled teachers. Students can make their own comic strips or read an abridged version of the Shakespeare tragedy “Romeo and Juliet” complete with comprehension questions. Other assignments teach students about character traits and how to determine a character motivation.

The Resource Library’s sources on inferences on fictional texts will have kids reading between the lines in no time.
