Predictions

We finished the book we were reading, Andy Shane and the Very Bossy Delores Starbuckle and have started a new chapter book. This one is from the Ready Freddy series and is called Ready Freddy: Tooth Trouble. The book has us naturally making predictions about what we think will happen next and this is exactly what reading skill we are working on. In this book, Freddy is the only one in his class who hasn't yet lost a tooth and this makes him feel very left out. It is a very funny and engaging book and the crew groans when we stop at the end of each chapter - they want to keep reading. (This is also exactly what you want to happen when you read a book aloud.) At the end of each chapter, we talk about what we think will happen next or make predictions about the rest of the story. There are lots of other books in this series if you are looking for some good books to read aloud to your child at home.
