Use this graphic organizer to help your students practice the metacognitive comprehension strategy of visualization. The thought bubble at the top of the page lists possible sentence starters for students to use for their thinking. The lined space below provides children with a defined space to practice expanding their thinking in words to describe what they are visualizing in a given text.
This worksheet is a great tool to use for a shared reading lesson on visualizing. Model some examples of your written thoughts for students, then provide them with an opportunity to practice writing their own.
Other ways this activity can be used are for a literacy center idea or with literature circles. This activity also is an excellent way to assess students' visualization skills.
