The inferring and predicting posters are the same, is this correct??

Michelle Jenkins 路 Feb 18th, 2018

Yes, Michelle, the text is the same. Two different options have been provided as some teachers use the terminology ‘predicting’ and some use ‘inferring’.

A comment about the pack, specifically the ‘inferring’ poster (this is the same with the other comprehension strategies pack). What is the rationale behind describing the skill inferring as a reader questioning what they think and feel about text? I am under the impression that inferring is a bit different to that.

Inferring is using a reader’s own background knowledge as well as clues from the text to work out what is not explicitly stated.


Ann dribbled the orange ball down the court.

We can infer that Ann is playing basketball because the text says she is on a court, and the ball is orange. We also know ourselves that basketball is played with an orange ball. At no point during that process am I asking myself what I think and feel about the text. To me, that process is more evaluating than inferring.

I’m a little confused as I don’t see the connection between that and the poster provided above.

Thanks for clarifying

Hi Jonathan

Thanks for your comment, you make a really great point! We’ve updated the pack now to include an alternate version of the inferring poster.

Hi – Jonothon is super correct here – inferring and predicting are completely different.. Can you direct me to the posters that include inferring as I find this to be the skill that many children need to put the most work into.

Hi Ben,
Thank you for your comment. We actually have another pack of reading comprehension posters available; this pack includes a poster for the monitoring strategy. You can download it here:
I hope this helps!

Hi, could you please make a ‘Monitoring’ card/poster as this was one of the original Super 6 Startegies. It could read, ‘Stop and think about the text.’ Thanks guys.
