Using visualizing is a great and engaging way to help students add to their reader’s toolbox of strategies. Students enjoy “making a movie” in their heads as they learn to picture what is read aloud or as they read.
You can use this poem in three ways: whole group, small group, or independently. You can read it aloud or have the student read independently.
There are two versions of the graphic organizer included: one with the poem written to encourage independent or partner reading, and one without, to encourage listening as images are made.
Thank you for your download and I hope this is a fun tool for you to teach visualizing in your classroom!
