Today, we learned a comprehension strategy called, “predict what will happen next, confirm with text.” Students were given a pad of sticky notes today to keep in their book baskets. Sticky notes will be used for many things during Read to Self time this year. But for today, we started out with just writing down a prediction about on of our books on a sticky note. When Read to Self time was done, we took our sticky note and put in on the big predicting chart. We then went through some of the predictions together, and talked about whether our predictions were correct or not.
