Rather than ask him, model it. Say "I wonder if Frances is going to go to bed now. Her father is getting angry with her, so I predict she will go to sleep now." (then read a page)...."Oh, my prediction was wrong...she is still not going to go to sleep" or "Look! My prediction was right."

 

Just do this casually for a while, then invite dc to help you make your prediction. Then pretty soon he should be able to do it on his own (It's the I do, we do, you do idea. If you just ask him to predict, you are not really showing him how to do it.) HTH.

I agree. You have to first show them how to do it, then do it with them, then ask them to do it alone. I think the best way would be to cover it as a natural part of your reading time, rather than looking for outside resources.
