Students Can Practice Active Reading by Guessing What Happens Next
Every chapter in Goosebumps: Night of the Living Dummy ends on a cliff-hanger—makes readers wonder what happens next?
As your class reads the Book of the Week, have your students use the “Making Predictions” activity to practice active reading and use text-based evidence to guess what happens in the upcoming chapter.

Before your students make new predictions for the next chapter, encourage them to review their predictions from the chapter before. What did they get right? Try a turn-and-talk for students to share their answers.
This activity is inspired by Rachel Jamison, a fifth grade teacher at Clubview Elementary in Columbus, Georgia. Watch her full review video for advice about how to use Goosebumps: Night of the Living Dummy as a novel study with your class in Book Talks.
