HOW TO USE
1. Tell students "I'm going to tell you about a movie. This movie is a little different because you get to draw your own pictures. Listen carefully. While I'm reading, you can watch the movie in your mind. Then, you will have a chance to draw what you see."
2. Place the I Have a Question icon in the center of the table. Encourage students to ask questions when they are curious about something or need clarification.
3. Read the "movie" and take a break after each scene. Give students 1 or 2 minutes to draw the scene on their Scene Visualization Worksheets. You may want to give each student a Draw A Scene Chart to help guide this process. For non-readers, you can read the Draw A Scene prompts aloud to help students create their drawings.
4. After all scenes are finished, have students compare pictures and retell the movie.
