This storm-themed reading visualization packet contains a story with picture cards for a reusable manipulative activity, a consumable visualization two-page printable to assess progress, and a reusable, manipulative vocabulary game. All activities are designed to incorporate a weather theme and enhance your science instruction. This product is also designed for cooperative learning.

Some students have a tough time visualizing what they read. Their lack of prior knowledge about a topic may make it nearly impossible for them to picture a scene or story in their minds.

This activity pack lets students manipulate a set of pictures and choose which one best represents the gist of what they are reading. Not only are the children developing their visualization skills, they are also learning to discern the main idea of a section of text.

Additionally, students will have the chance to make connections across reading and science curriculum. Any opportunity for children to read in the content area and add academic vocabulary provides valuable instruction.

Answer keys are included, and activities are presented in multiple formats with reusable sorting mats for flexibility. This packet will enhance both your whole group, small group, or literacy center plans.
