Activities for inferencing promote higher order thinking skills & critical thinking skills. They are foundational skills that are required for reading comprehension & necessary throughout life. This grammar activity can be used for the classroom, speech therapy, occupational therapy, special education, ELL classroom & ESL classroom. Great for literacy centers, small group instruction, whole group instruction or individual instruction. I use these for Teletherapy Speech Therapy & the kids love them!

This deck contains 76 cards with beginner to advanced levels. The fill in the blank are open response, so if you use the grading feature these will need to be manually graded. This gives you an idea about how well your students understand inferences.

The following is included:
1 Practice Card with 10 GIFS EMOTIONS - the pictures are GIFS & move!
10 GIFS EMOTIONS Sentence w/question "how did s/he feel?" (3 multiple choice w/pictures)
