This is a BUNDLE of reading activities to encourage students to visualize as they read, to increase their comprehension. The tasks involve students visualizing and verbalizing their ideas: connecting with the images, and higher order thinking, without the stress of de-coding.
What's included? There are 320 task cards: 8 for each of these skills, in each set:
1) Cause and Effect
2) Prior Knowledge (Inference)
5) Comparing and Contrasting
6) Fact and Opinion
7) Making Generalisations
8) Drawing Conclusions
Because I've used images in half of the tasks, students don't need to decode too much text, and can concentrate on thinking skills.
The resource includes differentiated learning and reading comprehension activities, using images and visual clues as the text. I find the images capture students' interest and they naturally begin to engage and discuss and predict what's happening.
Printed and laminated, they are a great resource to add to your literacy centres.
There is a file with US spelling and Australian spelling: print which ever.
These sets are available as individual purchases, if you prefer, but this is a bundle and I so you will save.
