The ability to make predictions based on evidence and prior knowledge is a key comprehension
skill, critical to understanding both fiction and non-fiction texts. This set of 60 picture cards
and accompanying questions will help you guide your students to develop the ability to make
meaningful predictions. As your students practice these skills with pictures and discussion,
they'll learn to transfer the same skills to text reading.
Your students will learn to:
* Identify important details in pictures
* Make inferences and predictions based on pictures
* Identify connections that are important to understanding the pictures
* Integrate information from the evidence (picture) and their own prior knowledge
* Make credible predictions based on both the picture and their prior knowledge
* Justify their predictions
The task cards are arranged four to a page, and can be printed for use with small groups or in
a center. The set also includes a full page of suggestions for using task cards and three student
response/assessment writing pages.
Thank you for your interest in this task card pack!
