♦ ♦ American and British Spelling Included ♦ ♦
Visualizing while reading is a strategy that is fundamental to comprehension. Visualization promotes active engagement with texts, encourages deep thinking and helps readers to retain information. Whilst this strategy comes naturally to some students, many children struggle to create mental images in their minds while reading and require explicit instruction and practice to develop these skills. Being intentional about practicing visualization has the power to transform students from passive to active readers!
Within this resource you will find no-prep, ready to print activities to support explicit teaching of visualization. This pack is divided into three sections:
♦ Introductory activities: Introduce your students to visualization and practice drawing a picture and ‘movie’ in response to short texts. A poster and discussion cards are included.
♦ Cut and Paste activities: Within this section are ten short texts that can be used to practice visualization. Students read the text, and then draw a picture in the space provided to show what they see in their mind. Then, they demonstrate connections to the text by cutting and pasting words and phrases that match what they have drawn. This is a fantastic way for students to become self-aware of whether or not their visual image accurately matches the text.
♦ Templates: Visualization templates that can be used for any text.
