This Mental Image Anchor Chart and Graphic Organizer activity set includes everything you need to teach the reading strategy: Making Mental Images with your youngest students. Included are cute posters for creating a Mental Image Anchor Chart. The posters help young readers learn about how good readers use their schema, background knowledge, five senses, and clues from the text to create vivid mental images.
Also included are 4 graphic organizers that can be used with any text to record mental images. The organizers include:
1. My Mental Image
2. My Most Vivid Mental Images
3. Adapting Mental Images
4. Mental Images After a Conversation with a Friend
I’ve also included a list of texts I use when beginning my mental image lessons as well as classroom ideas for how to use various texts.
