Inference Reading Practice Printables & Digital (Google)


Every student could benefit from practicing inference skills in both fiction and nonfiction pieces. This resource contains just that! It is full of 36 different reading passages of both the fiction and nonfiction genre for your students to practice inferring and explaining how they know based on the text evidence. It’s perfect for meeting the Common Core standards!

In these passages, students highlight or describe what details and examples they are referring to when making inferences or drawing conclusions explicitly from the text. After highlighting the text clues, students then explain the information paired with their background knowledge of what conclusion they were able to draw. This can be done with the graphic organizer, or just simply answer the question sheets.
