I Can Predict with Evidence from a Story
CCSSR1: Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific
textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
This Graphic Organizer can be used to assess if completed independently, or as a learning guide.
In the first column, write a prediction about what you think will happen after a story
ends? Writers often write sequels—the next part of a story.
Write what you think would happen after the story ends—what will one of the characters
do next?
Character: ____________________________________________
What will the character do?
Write an action you think the
character will take next—after
the story ends.
Give two reasons why you make that prediction.
If that happens, what will it lead to?
For example, how will other characters feel about what happens?
In the first column, write what you think would happen because the character does that.
Then explain why you think it will happen.
What could happen next?
Explain your prediction.
