Product Description
BEFORE your students read any genre, have them make meaningful predictions with this rotating activity! Students scan the selection, and choose 8 words they think will be important in the reading. They write those on squares, and then categorize them to gain understanding of possible setting, characters, problem, emotions, etc. THEN - they rotate their words and receive 8 new words to categorize from their neighbor! THEN - after several rotations, students thoroughly read the selection, and see how close their predictions were. Students have fun with this, but it creates a wonderful base of comprehension before reading.
