Visualizing

Today we started learning about how readers make mental images using their schema when they read.  We listened to the Visualizing song.


 
Then, I read aloud the book Bedhead by Margi Palatini. As I was reading, students drew their mental images. After the story was finished, students found a partner and shared their drawings. Then, students adjusted their pictures. To finish the lesson we discussed why all of our pictures were different.... we all have different SCHEMA!

I just got this book in the mail! I'm going to be using it in class soon. I love your site! I'm striving to get to this point. Being a working mother of three I know it will just take time. I think that working on my blog all summer will make me very organized for next year!

Thanks for all the resources!
