Walt: Predicting: I make, confirm and refine predictions before, during and after reading
This week in Miss Clark’s Literacy class, The Louis Sachar's are learning Predicting : I make, confirm, and refine predictions before, during and after reading. So our task was to read the first paragraph of the text, then we had to write what we predict this story will be about. This meant that we had to read the first paragraph as said, and then write your prediction about this will be about. My Prediction was that I was predicting that Laurie wouldn’t have had a dead man’s boots. But he does because the Coal miners went on strike, but if the strike hadn’t gone ahead Laurie’s Mum could have afforded to buy him new boots.
