Grade Levels: K-3

These family and homeschool activities are designed to complement the Make Predictions topic on BrainPOP Jr.

Read Together

Choose a book and read it together. Be sure to practice good active reading skills and pause to ask questions and make predictions. Your child may want to take notes as you read together. When your child makes a prediction, make sure he or she supports her prediction with evidence from the text. Have your child verbalize his or her reasoning and point to specific clues.

The Plot Thickens

Read a story out loud to your child. At a pivotal moment in the story, pause and have your child make a prediction. Then have him or her write the rest of the story or chapter. Younger students may wish to draw or dictate the story to you, instead of writing it. Then continue the story together to see what actually happens. Compare the original story and your child’s story. How are they alike? How are they different?
