This lesson thoughtfully scaffolds the reading skill of predicting. Students are introduced to the concept and get to practice making predictions. They will apply what they have learned during a focused independent reading activity.
This exercise will give your students practice reading a text, making a prediction, and citing text evidence to support it. They will use introductory phrases as they complete sentence frames to create strong evidence-based sentences.
Teach your students to make predictions as they read, and it guides them to use text evidence to back up their predictions.
