Visualizing is the key to comprehension. I have created these graphic organizers to help students through the visualizing process. They are based on Lindamood Bell’s Visualizing and Verbalizing Program. They are meant to help the students through the visualizing process independently during independent reading, shared reading, guided reading, read alouds and homework using any text. You can use these graphic organizers for passages, read alouds, books, text books…anything! The graphic organizers included are:
Noun Reading Response: Students pick a noun, any noun from the text, and visualize it with guidance.
Any Sentence Reading Response: Students pick any sentence from the text and visualize it with guidance.
Title Reading Response: Students write the title of the text they are reading and visualize it with guidance.
You can use these graphic organizers over and over and over again!
Enjoy and hope this helps your students visualize independently!
