I made this resource because my students needed practice applying two of the skills we recently studied: summarizing and predicting.
I have used this as an assessment tool, in literacy centers, and during guided reading groups as guided practice.
This packet includes:
- Book Summary & Book Prediction Page: Students make a prediction before reading a book. Then after reading the book, they write a short summary about the book. Next, they evaluate their initial prediction using evidence from the text.
- Book Summary & Book Prediction Page: Same as above, but this one includes an “I Can” statement for the title.
- Two Chapter Summary & Prediction Pages (2 chapters on each page): Students write a chapter summary and then a prediction. The next lesson, they return to the previous chapter to evaluate if their predictions were correct.
- Directions and lesson ideas for using this packet
Use these worksheets individually or as a mini-unit. The Book Summary and Prediction page is a wonderful assessment tool to see if your students can apply these skills independently.
