What are they thinking? Inference cards – Item 226


Add to wishlist

This is a downloadable resource - once purchased, it will be available for you to download.

This ‘What are they thinking?’ resource has 72 cards with a character or characters and a thinking bubble. The idea is that the child must come up with something that the character is thinking. Look at where the thinking bubble is pointing for those pictures with several characters. You can of course ask what they think the other characters are thinking, feeling or why they are behaving in that way.

There is a whole range of emotions, body language, positive and negative behaviour cards included.

This is a great inference tool for children to look carefully at what is happening in the picture or to look carefully at the facial expression or body language. Great for speech and language activities as well as social and emotional. Children will learn how to really look at something and analyse what they can see. They will learn to infer what is happening. This will help them with reading different situations in their everyday life and of course for reading comprehension activities.

This is a ‘talking’ activity rather than a writing one but you could print the cards bigger, on A3 rather than A4, laminate them and they could be used with a dry wipe pen.

They could be used for one to one working, small groups or circle-time. This is also a great ice-breaker resource to help warm up the child before working with them.


"A one stop shop of support, great ideas and experience. This is the place to come for inspiration, direction... and the odd 'cyber hug'!"
