## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Peek Inside and Predict (Lesson 2 of 2) - Section 3: Teachers' Turn

My students struggled in part 1 of this lesson with creating a good prediction. Here's an example of a wordy unfocused prediction. They tended to retell the story instead of predicting and did not include the necessary story elements to make it a good prediction. I decided to use the math problem worksheet in this lesson to really clarify for them what makes a good prediction and help eliminate the extraneous details.

I had originally planned the previous lesson to stand alone because I thought they'd be able to write a good prediction. Through formative assessment - looking at their work and evaluating common problems, I identified that another lesson was needed to help them write concise predictions.
