This is a small sheet that I use with my kiddos whenever introducing a new story that we will be studying for a few days. The first day that introduce the story I always model a picture walk and think aloud. The kiddos then make predictions (on this document) based on what we saw and thought about the story. Then we fold them up and place them in a "Prediction Pail". After we read the story we quickly go through all of the predictions and see how close their thinking was to the actual story. The kids absolutely love taking ownership of the story this way. To see a picture of the prediction pail you can visit my blog at Kindergartenboomboom.blogspot.com.
Thanks for looking and enjoy this freebie!
