As a young reader, children’s author Sam X Renick struggled to stay in his seat and stay focused while reading. BUT, when a game or interaction was added to the reading process, it was a whole different story. Magically, he became laser focused.

If your child or student also struggles to focus while reading, Predict the Chapter Titles may offer a solution.


Minnesota State University Reading Strategies and Misconceptions website: Article – Predicting by | Here is a short excerpt:

Predicting is an important reading strategy. It allows students to use information from the text, such as titles, headings, pictures and diagrams to anticipate what will happen in the story (Bailey, 2015). When making predictions, students envision what will come next in the text, based on their prior knowledge. Predicting encourages children to actively think ahead and ask questions. It also allows students to understand the story better, make connections to what they are reading, and interact with the text.
