Making Predictions

Making good predictions is the first step to becoming a successful reader.  In this activity, students will read through an online story.  The first time they read through it, there won't be any words, just pictures.  Have the students think about what they believe will happen in the story based on the title and the pictures that appear.  Have them record their predictions on the provided handout.  Then have the students read through the story again with the words to see if their predictions were close or way off base.
Begin the lesson!
