Make and Confirm Predictions

Good readers use strategies, such as making and confirming predictions, to monitor their comprehension as they read. Good readers are active readers, and as they read they use their own knowledge and what the author says to make predictions. Later, they use story information to confirm their predictions.

Leigh is having problems. Someone is stealing his lunch.

His alarm works, but no one tries to steal his lunch, so he doesn’t catch the person.

Leigh decides that he is glad he didn’t find out who the thief was because he or she would have been in big trouble.

  • In his March 16 entry, Leigh says that he doesn’t miss his father as much as he use to. This seems to show the author’s viewpoint that problems can seem easier to handle as time passes.
