These units use images as Visual Text
as input, with 60 Task Cards
that delve deeply into comprehension skills; Visualization, Prior Knowledge, Generalization, Cause and effect, Fact and Opinion, Sequencing, Questioning, Predicting, Comparing and Contrasting and Drawing Conclusions.
The images in this first BUNDLE are; THE BROKEN WINDOW,THE TRIP and PACKING
I found that students' skills comprehension improve with this opportunity to think about the images. These thinking skills carried over into written texts and improved their ability to discuss their ideas, possibilities and opinions.
The images makes a great focal point for a wall display, surround by student's task work. For each Unit there's;
1. The last 8 Task Cards make great notebook/workbook activities.
2. They serve as idea starters for class or small group discussions.
3. Laminate a set to use as an activity in a literacy center.
4. Use them as assessment and/or homework tasks.
5. Use them as a Center Activity
I have these as individual sets of Task Cards if you prefer.
