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.

Same old horse is a story that introduces the skill of predicting. This book is greatly suited for those in the 1st- 2nd grade.
Just like any subject or area in life it is essential to learn the value of predictions.

There are many concepts that can be introduced through the reading of this book: sorting, patterns, predictions, time, and friendship. I really liked the activities provided that go along with the book.
