Study Guide Predictions English Language Arts, Grade 4

PREDICTIONS What are Predictions? When you predict when reading, you make an educated guess about what is going to happen next in the story. When predicting you use facts and clues from the reading as well as your own personal knowledge to help you make a good guess about what is going to happen next in the story. Example: Scott and his teammates were all ready to start the game when suddenly the skies became dark and the team heard rumbling in the distance. They knew their game was going to be delayed and maybe even cancelled. Why is their game going to be delayed or cancelled? If you read the facts in the story (dark skies and rumbling in the distance), you can predict that there is going to be a thunderstorm, which will delay or cancel their game. Try This! The sidewalk outside of Lucy’s house was extremely icy. Freezing rain had fallen all throughout the night. Lucy was late for work, so she was in a hurry. She grabbed her bag and quickly ran out the front door. She ran on the sidewalk with her dress shoes on and suddenly… What would be the best prediction of what happened next? a] She ate her lunch. b] It began to snow. c] She slipped on the ice and fell right to the ground. d] She buttoned up her coat because it was cold. © Copyright NewPath Learning.
