Product Description
This 2-page worksheet combo is a scaffolding tool for students as they learn to make predictions about a story. It works really well with grades 2nd-6th, but modifications can be made for 1st grade, and extensions can be added for 6th grade.

It is meant to be a tool for read alouds or reading groups, and chapter books work really well because students can use the previous chapters to make predictions about the future. My 4th graders filled one of these out after every chapter, and then kept them as a type of prediction log.

The first page has students list the name of the book and chapter title (if applicable). Students start by writing out three main events that happened in the chapter. Then students make three predictions on their own, and finally they talk to a partner, share predictions, and then make three predictions together.

The second page, "Drawing the Future," can be used as an extension for students who finish early, or it can be a modification of the prediction process in younger grades (K, 1st, 2nd). Students draw a picture as their prediction, first by themselves and then with a partner. There is a caption at the bottom, which I make optional for students in grades K-2. Teachers can also use the caption section as a place to script what the students say. This can be a tool to check for understanding, and to help students develop writing skills in the early grades.

Use this however you see fit in the classroom. There are many different ways to use this as a scaffold for predicting!
