Making Predictions Reading Log- Students will be held accountable during their reading time by logging what they predict will happen. Along with making a prediction, they'll also write a “because” portion to show that they are using information from the story to make a sensible prediction. This is a great way to quickly assess if your students understand this strategy.
This is a three-page document that includes two different varieties so that you can use it flexibly. The first two pages include small boxes for students to fill out. I use them as a Reader’s Workshop assignment, to introduce the strategy in shared reading and to reinforce the strategy in guided reading. I print them front to back so that students can use the same sheet all week long and so teachers don't have a million items to collect and grade if they choose. They can also easily be cut into strips to as a literacy center activity or as a quick exit slip. They can even been used as nightly homework reading response entries.
The third page is a larger version of one single response. This may be more practical for younger learners because it has wider lines to write on and looks much less intimidating. It may also be useful if you only plan on using one or two boxes.
