Language Arts Lesson - "Predicting Unit"

by Bethany Baptiste
3rd-5th grade

Watching readers transition from decoding text to comprehending it in a meaningful way is magical! Teaching young readers strategies to bring text to life will make learning to read 
more fun and motivating. 

This Predicting Unit uses engaging activities that guide readers to master the reading strategy of making predictions when they read. Throughout the unit, students will independently practice the strategy and then apply it to their own reading.

This unit includes:
  • 1 'Predict' Poster
  • 6 Pictures with Teacher Notes to Practice Using Schema to Predict
  • 6 Read Aloud Passages with Teacher Notes to Practice Using Text Evidence and Schema to Predict
  • Predicting Practice Worksheet to Record Predictions
  • 6 Part Read Aloud with Student Worksheet to Practice Adjusting and Confirming Predictions
  • 2 Predictions Plays: Readers' Theater with Prediction Recording Sheets
  • 4 Predicting Mini-Books
  • 1 Post-It Practice Page to Use While Making Predictions during Independent Reading
  • 1 Student Poster to Display Predicting Practice
  • 2-Sided Predict Bookmarks with Reminders and Recording Notes Space

I hope you enjoy this unit and others from this series you can find in my store!
