This is a great half sheet to hand out to students as an informal assessment for understanding how to make accurate predictions. Before reading, pass out a half sheet to each student. The teacher reads aloud a text to students. At on point in the reading, the teacher pauses and asks a question for students to make a prediction. When the kids write down their OWN prediction, give evidence for it, and the confirm or adjust it once reading resumes. After completing this activity, there is a great opportunity for a pair and share or share out with other class members.
