Research has shown that good readers are constantly visualizing what they read. This skill does not come naturally to all readers and must be taught.
Included in this unit:
1 sensory word hunt page
1 visualizing characters page
1 visualizing and comparing settings page
1 visualizing "big action" plot moments page
1 page of strategy book marks!
All black line masters require students to show evidence of their thinking from their books. Great way to show how you are using rigor in the classroom!

Character Study Unit
I have used these pages with my students as a once a week reminder on the importance of noticing sensory words and making mental movies as they read. Using the pages in this way stretched the concept of visualizing while reading across a whole month of reading instruction and made it a ritual for my students.
This unit also promotes metacognition (fixing blurry mental movies), compare and contrast, diagraming, and explaining thinking through written responses.
