Missing

by Kylie Parry

In this narrative, Liam’s pets have mysteriously disappeared. When Liam goes to play in his room, he discovers where they’ve gone and, in the process, learns an important lesson. This text requires students to make inferences on a number of levels – about what is happening in the text, the shift to an imaginary world, and the author’s purpose.

Spider.

Spider

by Alan Bagnall

Junior Journal 42

This humorous, easy-to-read poem describes a child’s dilemma upon finding a spider in the bath. It’s likely to provoke a strong response from students as they make connections to their own experiences of spiders, but it also requires them to infer in order to fully understand the child’s problem.
