For this writing practice, I had students take the vocabulary list for the upcoming chapter, in this case, chapter 7, and take notes on what patterns they see in the words or what some connections might be. Next, students are to write down their predictions of what will happen in this chapter based on the vocabulary. Kirikou also has a lot of pictures in the book, so students may use this as well to contribute to their predictions.
This corresponds with my writing project where I measure students' improvement on specific aspects of writing, in this case, focusing on proper verb conjugation. When I post the tracker, I will explain more clearly what is intended for the project. Otherwise, feel free to use this as a general writing prompt!
