book list or lessons for prediction?

I am wondering if anyone has any great mini-lessons to teach prediction? Also, any type of book list for this strategy? My students don't seem to want to think about what might be happening next because they are afraid of being wrong.

I worked this summer on mini lessons on prediction but my lessons are for first grade. Let me know and I would email them to you.

In "Reading With Meaning" by Debbie Miller, she has a sample lesson on predicting using the book "The Royal Bee." I've done that lesson with my second graders the past 3 years and it has gone really well. I love the simple organizer she uses with the prediction on one side and the support behind their predition on the other with a space for a picture. I think this book works great as an introduction to prediction because almost all of them correctly predict that he will win...it's a no brainer so they feel successful. Then you can move on and talk about how sometimes we are right with our prediction and sometimes not, just that fact that you are thinking while you read is important. This year I also did a lesson on predicting with the book "Stephanie's Ponytail" by Robert Munsch. It's a quick read and the kids love it. Then ending is a surprise and my class was about 50-50 on their predictions, but it was really fun. Hope those help.

"My students don't seem to want to think about what might be happening next because they are afraid of being wrong."

This seems to be a typical reaction, especially among very competitive boys. Unless the classroom is a safe environment where kids can say things without fear of ridicule, you will continue to have this problem.

Last year a 6th grade teacher was observing my first graders doing predictions, and he realized he had made it into a competitive game. He went back to his classroom and helped his students see that making predictions wasn't about winning but about helping them understand the story at a deeper level.

There really is no sense of competition in my room-as a matter of fact I wish there was some- so that some of the less motivated students might be drawn in! I think they don't like to be wrong because they are a large group of girls with concerns for being perfect-I have seen this before-I was one of them once!
