The children’s picture book, The Big Orange Splot, can excellently reinforce visualization, a comprehension strategy. Teaching visualization involves encouraging students to create a visual picture of the book in their head. By focusing on visualization, students will better understand, remember, and enjoy texts. Visualization helps students better understand a story. This book is fantastic for visualization because of the significance of the descriptive words to the story. Mr. Plumbean’s house is described using colors, adjectives, and similes. The book could be read without pictures and still make just as much sense. The adjectives are simple and easily comprehendible, which makes the story easy to envision.
This packet provides teachers with a plethora of FREE visualization activities, worksheets, and ideas.
