Product Description
Visualizing strengthens reading comprehension skills as students gain a more thorough understanding of the text they are reading by consciously using the words to create mental images. Students who visualize as they read not only have a richer reading experience but can recall what they have read for longer periods of time.

This is an activity I use with my first graders. I read them the story The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. While reading, I have the students close their eyes and visualize, or make a picture in their mind. ((Don't show them the pictures at all. The only thing I show them is the cover, so they know what the main character looks like.)) Once I finish reading the story, I give each child a page of text from the book. They illustrate what they visualized as we read. They always do SO well!

Disclaimer: Text from the book is taken directly from The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. I do not take ownership of the text that was used in making this product. This is used as a tool to help students learn to visualize.
