Some of the horses on the farm are saying that Hankie the horse is boring and predictable. Can he prove them wrong by being unpredictable?
In this story, students are introduced to making predictions. Some of the examples include making predictions for time and patterns. This book can be used in kindergarten of first grade.

I See I Learn

I was one of those kids who talked all the time in class. I loved telling stories. One day in the 4th Grade, my teacher said, “You tell such good stories, maybe you should try writing some of them down.” “Wow,” I thought. “She thinks my stories are good.” That’s when I started to real...more
