Product Description
An Anticipation chart is a reading activity where the teacher provides true or false statements about information from a book.

In a fiction story the teacher might make the statement "The main character will get lost". The students must either agree or disagree with the statement before they read (prediction). The students will repeat this activity a second time to determine if they agree or disagree once they have read the story (monitor understanding).

I have found this activity helps to set the purpose for reading, and encourages the students to read carefully.

Tip: When using this for an informational text, choose statements that will help reinforce the main idea and supporting details.
