Are you teaching the reading strategy visualization?
If you need student anchors and worksheets to record visualizations, you found it!
When we read something new it can be difficult to remember and understand it. Our brains remember pictures better than words. Teaching visualization is an important skill to teach readers. Visualization appeals to all of our senses. I like to start by using picture books to teach this skill, even for older students. Point out all of the words that appeal to the senses and write them on the board or use the web provided to record it. Once the student has had practice with this, you can introduce a story and have them draw their mental picture on the sheet provided (boy or girl). An anchor chart is also provided, you can use this to explain visualization and how we all can have a different mental picture and still be right. Include it in the student's journal pages or find other ways to use it.
