This is the writing sheet for the prediction basketball game. Students write their predictions about what will happen next in the story on this sheet of paper. Then they wad the paper up into a ball and throw it into a waste basket like playing basketball. The ones that land in the waste basket I read aloud to the class.
**I usually print on orange colored paper to look like a basketball**
I also like to hang a basketball rim net around the waste basket.
Students love making predictions this way!
