The Land of Stories: Predicting

Students are practicing making predictions in their reading. In our class, we made some predictions about what we thought was coming up next in our read-aloud book, The Land of Stories. Each student shared his or her ideas on an anchor chart. Many had similar ideas, but all were creative in their own specifics.

After finishing Chapter Four with a cliffhanger, students used their Writer's Workshop tools and predicting skills to write their own versions of Chapter Five. Some of them were so incredible, I felt like I was reading ahead in the book!
