Reflection: Predictions: Crystal ball reflections - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


I’ve included some pictures of completed student Prediction Guides so that you can see what the end result may look like with your students. The grading scale we use in third grade in my district is B for Beginning understanding of concept, D for Developing within grade level, and S for Secure understanding of concept. The picture shows students that have a Secure understanding of Predictions and completed the Guide correctly. I have copies of these and all other Strategy Guides organized in a file crate so I can have them on hand to use with these students or any students another time to reinforce the strategy throughout the year. Luckily there were no students that showed a Beginning or Developing understanding of Predictions. All students were secure but I still plan to revisit this strategy often and incorporate it into our daily Read Alouds.
