Worksheet Overview

A really important reading skill to have is to be able to make predictions.


Making a prediction is making a sensible guess about what might happen in a story or to a character. We can use clues in the text to help us make these predictions. 


Question mark


Have a look at this question:


The hungry eagle was soaring above the land when it spotted a mouse scurrying through the forest. 


an eagle flying


What do you think the eagle did next?


1) Carried on flying around

2) Tried to catch the mouse to eat it



The clue in the text here is that the eagle is hungry, so it is probably searching for food. We can use this information to help us predict that it is most likely to try to catch and eat the mouse!


Let's have a go at answering some questions like this.
