I have a lot of little ones that struggle with inferencing and using clues to help them figure out what is going on. I have been reading articles about how inferencing skills affects reading comprehension. So, if you are having trouble with inferencing, then you are probably having trouble with reading comprehension. I used my tooth fairy game to create some “where” and “what” inference cards as well as a visual poster to help with teaching inferences. When I teach inferences with my students, I also make them tell me the “clues” that helped them make their guess. This game is great for carry over and practicing the skill of inferencing after YOU have taught it as a group in therapy. It is also a great place to start to see if your students CAN inference. The level on the cards range from 1st to 3rd grade or any student who is functioning at that level. Below you will see my visual poster to help with reminding students what inferencing is.
The same game rules apply as my Tooth Fairy artic and Tooth fairy language games. You can see an example of what some of the game cards look like.
There are 18 “where” inference cards and 18 “what” inference cards as well as a sheet of my game cards for playing the game. I also included two answer key sheets with the answers to the questions as well as the clues that helped them make the guess (a very important element for the students to provide). You can grab my Tooth Fairy Inferences game HERE. I have all three of my games available at my TPT store individually, but you may want to grab the whole bundle of tooth fairy games (articulation, language, & Inferences) for a better deal then paying for each game individually. Check out my bundle at my TPT store.
