Making predictions in a story is such an important element of imagination and comprehension for a student. I have seen this in my internship where students will give ideas in a large group reading what they will believe will happen in the story. I have also implemented more predictions in literacy by doing a picture walk with the students.
Directions: What do you think will happen in this story? Write your predictions inside the crystal ball. After they've read the book, have them go back and compare what actually happened to their predictions. This 1 page download is great for reading / literacy centers and can be used repeatedly throughout the year. I also think it's perfect for bulletin boards. You can either use the full page or have students cut out their crystal ball predictions before you put them on display!
