### Prediction and inference 4th grade

1. 1. Predicting and InferringA Reading Strategy <br />Mrs. Cowan <br />
2. 2. What is Prediction? <br />A prediction is what you think will happen based upon the text, the author, and background knowledge. <br />Prediction is an educated guess as to what will happen. <br />
3. 3. What is Inference?<br />Inference is reading all of the clues and making your best guess. <br />Inference is similar to prediction but they are not the same. <br />When inferring you are using all of the clues to draw conclusions about what is being read. <br />
4. 4. What is the difference between predicting and inferring? <br />When you make a prediction it will be answered by the end of the story. <br />Predicting focuses on what will happen in the story while inferring focuses on what a character will do, how he/she is feeling, or making other judgements. <br />An inference may or may not be answered by the end of the story. <br />
5. 5. When to Make Predictions<br />Readers make predictions BEFORE reading a text<br />Readers make predictions DURING the reading of a text <br />
6. 6. When to Make Inferences<br />Readers make inference DURING reading <br />Readers ask themselves questions as they read. These are not necessarily based on what the reader thinks will happen next. <br />Inferences help the reader to understand what he/she is reading. <br />
7. 7. How to Make a Prediction<br />To make a prediction you must question yourself<br />Ask yourself what else might happen in the story<br />Ask yourself what you think will happen next in the story <br />
8. 8. How to Make an Inference <br />Inferences are made by asking questions while you are reading and using clues to help you make a guess as to the answers<br />Ask yourself how the character is feeling and why he/she is feeling that way <br />Ask yourself why the character behaves the way he/she behaves<br />
9. 9. Patricia Poloco<br />At this point we will read a Patricia Poloco book together and then you will practice these new skills. <br />Predicting and inferring are ways to understand the story we are reading. <br />
