Prediction skills – Find two: free creative teaching resource

Do you say what you see or see what you say?

There have been many studies showing how our brain fills in the gaps in what we see and how we recognize word shapes when we are reading without necessarily ‘seeing’ the letters.

This activity, Find two, challenges the children to look closely at words in a list to find the two that are the same. It is not as easy as it sounds.

It is drawn from How to Sparkle at Prediction Skills which contains 40 photocopiable worksheets to help Key Stage 1 (KS1) children to develop word recognition and text-prediction skills. They are designed to to teach children to predict and anticipate which words come next, through their awareness of context and syntax, and to build up a basic sight vocabulary of words which they will often meet.
