Want a fun and easy to remember way to have your students conquer the difficult task of comprehending what they read? This is one of my many strategies that help students dive into higher level thinking without the frustration, without the vagueness of correlation to everyday reading, without the "once its over it forgotten" type of lessons.
It's time to teach our young readers how to find the joy and ease of comprehending. It's time for an easy to use tool that requires little to no extra creating time. It's time to teach our students that understanding what you read can be fun and they can do it!
This Visualizing lesson comes with a poster depicting our Beanie Baby animal connected to visualizing. Batty the Bat will not only teach young readers how to visualize, but will offer an easy reminder of what the task is and how to do it independently.
This package contains not only the 8 1/2 x 11" poster which can be reprinted and laminated or framed for durability, but also various lessons using well-written, quality, picture books that allow students to practice the skill over and over again. It includes a lesson plan guide for each lesson and graphic organizers to use for each story.
Once your students meet Batty, they will not forget him or the lesson on how to visualize when reading. I hope your students find these tools as helpful and transferrable as my students.
