Students will be able to make predictions about and then summarize a fictional text.
The adjustment to the whole group lesson is a modification to differentiate for children who are English learners.
Show students the cover of a fiction text (such as Matilda by Roald Dahl) and demonstrate how to make a prediction by thinking aloud about the text, saying, “I wonder what this book is about. I see a child and a school. Maybe it is about a child going to school.”
Explain that you just made a prediction, which means to guess what might happen in the story. Now you will need to read the story to find out if your prediction is correct.
Beginning: Repeat explanation of prediction in student's home language (L1).
Allow students to orally share their sentence frame with a partner.
Ask student to explain prediction in their own words.
