Endless possibilities (explore what could be in the bag.....)

In class we often stop part-way through a book to predict what could happen next. Remember there is no right or wrong answer - it's all about using clues from the text to predict what could happen. How many different options can you think of?


What do you think is in the bag? What clues from the book make you think this? Remember to look for clues in both the text and the pictures. How many different ideas can you think of? Write your predictions in a mind map or in full sentences.
