Reflection: Lesson Planning Predictions: Do you see what I see? - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


For the Predictions packet, you can use picture books or chapter books to find effective text samples. The idea is to find a page in the book where the author is hinting towards an event, surprise, or conflict that is about to happen. Once you’ve compiled 4 different text samples, you can copy the pages and put them into a packet. At the top of each page, I like to write the title of the book, the author, and the strategy we are working on. I’ve compiled each packet that I’ve made for all of the strategies and put them into a binder. That way, I have them to use year after year and won’t have to scramble to find good examples. They are always ready to copy and use the day that I need them.
