Instructional Ideas

  • Model how to complete the organizer first, leading your class through making a prediction for a story you are reading together
  • Send this home with learners to use when reading independently; you can collect the organizers as a sort of reading log
Classroom Considerations

  • The worksheet has three spaces exactly for clues, and sometimes there might not be exactly three clues that lead up to a prediction
Pros

  • Provides two examples to show how a first grader and a fourth grader completed the graphic organizer
  • Could be used with just about any text
  • Includes a description of how to use the organizer
Cons

  • None

As a middle school teacher and coach, I have very little spare time. This year, I was asked to teach 2 subjects (one of which I have never taught). Lesson Planet has helped me become more prepared without having to spend hours on the internet searching for ideas. Almost everything I need can now be found with one click of the mouse!
