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.

This is a Prediction pail. When I introduce a new story for Shared Reading we always take a picture walk first and make predictions. The kiddos write their predictions on a prediction page then fold them up and put them in the pail. The next day we read the story. The kids are so excited to open up their prediction pages and show everyone if they predicted what would happen!

Making predictions in a story is such an important element of imagination and comprehension for a student. I have seen this in my internship where students will give ideas in a large group reading what they will believe will happen in the story. I have also implemented more predictions in literacy by doing a picture walk with the students.

This can be a great writing exercise before reading a text! Students can draw and/ or write what they predict will happen in the book based on the cover and title. Since, students are writing it down, they can always go back to their initial prediction as they revise their predictions as they read. This will also help students understand what a prediction is.
