CLARK — Students in second grade have been learning about the predicting reading strategy in Miss Koddenberg’s literacy enrichment class at Hehnly School in Clark. In a recent lesson, students were introduced to predicting and discussed the definition and how to utilize it when reading. Students defined it as “taking a picture walk and using clues to tell what will happen in the story.”
During class the next week, second graders used their knowledge of that discussion to predict the cover of the story, “Henry and Mudge and the Tall Tree House.” Miss Koddenberg did not show the students the cover of the book and asked them to use clues from the pictures and words to think about what the cover would look like.
