I know that a lot of teachers work on comprehension strategies throughout the year with their students. Here are some forms I created to use when teaching predictions. I generally begin with the before reading predictions page. We discuss a book cover, title, and take a picture walk. The first couple of days I have the students make a prediction and write it on the lines. As we work through the week, I have them write their evidence on sticky notes, and attach them to the evidence boxes at the bottom. I gradually move through each prediction page (during and after) doing the same routine. At the end of the predictions unit, I have the students complete one whole set (before, during, after) and submit for a grade. I have used these for first, second and third grade, and I have always had a good outcome with my predictions unit! Enjoy trying these out with your class.
