One Week To... More Detailed Visualizing!
This is the first installment of a reading comprehension series I've been working on. Each "week" focuses on one strategy and provides detailed instruction and activities to help kids master the skill and use it effectively.
This first pack is all about VISUALIZING! Visualizing is one of the most powerful reading comprehension strategies but is often overlooked as something we do "just for fun."
This 1 week unit aims at helping kids understand the power of visualizing (both in reading and any area of learning) and to provide a variety of strategies for refining visualizations, using "mind movies" in all areas, and fixing up your "mind movie" when it stops.
*Explanation of strategy
*5 days of lessons
*Extra practice and extension ideas
*Text ideas and samples
*Visualizing anchor chart
*Visualizing Think Sheet (graphic organizer)
