Multiple ways to use this visual thinking freebie! A visually pleasing way to show the entire classes observations, interpretations and brief artist statement.
"I See, I Think, I Wonder" encourages students to make careful observations and thoughtful interpretations. It helps stimulate curiosity and sets the stage for inquiry.
Create with meaning! Engaged learners show emotional responses. Catch those feelings on this beautiful, hand drawn worksheet as part of the process! Students are motivated when they observe, describe and ask their own questions. Using "love" is a call for positive action for students to make something new based on their emotional response.
Use the routine at the beginning of a new unit to motivate student interest or try it with an object that connects to a topic during the unit of study. Consider using the routine with an interesting object near the end of a unit to encourage students to further apply their new knowledge and ideas.
The routine works well in a group discussion but in some cases you may want to ask students to try the routine individually:
-Warm-Up Exercise to deepen thinking, connect with the artist'/writer's purpose.
-Responding to a Artwork (movie/reading) with a plan to use inspiration in a new way.
-Preliminary worksheet for TAB students
-Students enjoy coloring after they respond
