This worksheet can be used with any and every story. It supports and enhances reading comprehension by encouraging painting pictures in one's mind of story details. Painting mental pictures of details strengthens fact retention and meaning-making. The worksheet comes with ten different borders. Included with the ten worksheets is an original poem with five verses describing the "think-about" process. This poem could be laminated and posted on a wall as a reminder to think deeply about story details, and to be a deliberate and focused reader.
One Arts Infusion Collaborative seeks to create poetry, music and other imaginative means by which to support curricular content.
