Use these inferencing photos during your reading workshop mini-lessons or small groups.
We have pulled together these photos for inferencing to be used as prompts to help your students practice inferencing skills.
**We have recently added an additional set. This second download contains 15 newer photos. The first set was created mostly from pictures of family and friends before we had a better collection of stock photos and didn’t have permission to use others in our resources. Pick and choose the ones that work best for your classroom and needs.
Look for this second set highlighted in GREEN underneath the first set.
The collection we have pulled together includes photos chosen because they can be used for students to practice inferencing.
There are 30 photos included in each set. These can be a fun way to get your students to practice making inferences before applying it to reading.
We have created an anchor chart that contains language students can use when practicing making inferences. Add this to a reading notebook or print and hang in your room as an anchor chart.
Have family photos we could use to add to our personal inferencing collection? We would love for you to email your own photos to us!
Our goal is to add more diversity to this collection and we need your photos to do so. Please only share photos of your own family so we know that we have permission.
The photos and resources shared below are intended to be free for classroom use. Please feel free to copy and use in your classroom.
These are not intended to be printed and sold or changed and sold. Please contact us if you have any questions!

Writing Prompts This set includes 30 photos, each on its own page with a border and lines for writing. Give students a picture and have them infer what is happening in the picture.
