Inferencing

Fun Games for Teaching Inference

Inference is a key skill that we use on a constant basis throughout the day, without being consciously aware of it. The ability to infer is to deduce or conclude something from evidence and reasoning, rather than from an outright statement.

For example, if you were to visit a friend’s house for dinner and when you arrived you saw that there are two place settings already laid out at the dining table, you would immediately infer:

  • That it will be just the two of you dining together tonight
  • That you’ll be taking a seat at one of the two place settings that are set up

If there’s red wine, garlic bread and parmesan cheese on the dining table, you might also infer that dinner is going to be Italian.

Learning how to infer things at an early age is extremely helpful, as it allows us to better understand social cues, hold more sophisticated conversations, and generally develop higher order thinking skills.

 

Our purpose-designed toys and board games teach inference skills to kids

At Fun Stuff, we stock a variety of toys, games and other helpful resources that help young children gain a clearer understanding of how inference works.

Our inferencing skills books teach kids how to draw conclusions when the author hasn’t given explicit details within the story, while our selection of Fun Decks aims to strengthen a child’s ability to make predictions based on the information they are presented with.

By using the resources featured here as an accessory to your child’s learning and playtimes, you can equip them with the tools to dig deeper into their thinking and make educated estimations. Many of our games are self-checking, so children can play solo and take charge of their own learning.

You might also be interested in our toys and games for teaching grammar and syntax, phonological awareness, questioning skills, reasoning and expression, vocabulary and other invaluable skills.
