Comprehension Freebies

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.

    1. Hello Amy,
      I'm not sure what is up with that! I was able to open it and print it today. Did you have to sign in with your Google Account?

  5. I could not print either, but I figured it out! Click on the "printer" icon - then it shifts over to a format where you can save!
