Prediction Lesson

When we read a story or watch a movie, we are always making predictions about what will happen next. Prediction is a guess about what is coming next. As we continue reading or watching the movie, those prediction are either confirmed or denied. Making a prediction throughout your reading is a great way to comprehend the story. Predictions are important because they help us stay active and it keeps us involved in the story. 
I have a fun making predictions activity or lesson to use in your classroom today. If you're teaching predictions or need a review on predicting, this is a fun lesson to do. You will need the book, "Bark George" by Jules Feiffer. 

 FREE Prediction Lesson
This is a cute lesson on making predictions. As you read the story, students will make predictions on what will happen next before you turn the page. Use the recording sheet to help students make predictions. Not all of our predictions will be right and it's time to show students this. None of them will guess what happens at the end of the story.
