‘HIDE and SEEK’  READING STRATEGIES – Inferential Reading Strategies

As readers begin to dig deeper into the implied or inferred ideas present in the texts they use ideas, skills and strategies that enable them to:

  • To use facts (in text or images) to explore inferred ideas
  • Form predictions or develop informed guesses
  • Explore sequences, settings and hidden plot ideas
  • Extend phonological awareness and develop vocabulary banks
  • Use the understanding that reading is a two-way process to explore other connections texts might have.
