Teaching Reading Comprehension Strategies - Visualising
Visualising is an important reading comprehension skill. Use these two different hands-on activities to implicitly teach the skill of visualising.
One activity included allows children to become more aware of the layering of ideas and understanding that occur as we are reading and how that can change as more information is gathered while reading.
This task has children guessing 'What I am?' a clue at a time. With more than 30 different drawing prompts included along with the drawing template, this activity can be repeated many times.
Another activity looks that the importance a title plays in creating a visual in our minds ahead of reading. Choose from 20 different titles as drawing prompts. Two different drawing templates have been provided.
Here's what's included -
- 48 different 'What Am I?' cards included each with a real life photo and 3 stepped clues - 24 per A4 page
