This month we’ve been working on our Mental Image unit. I’ve pretty much covered everything the fabulous Debbie Miller has suggested. As you can see in the picture above my students worked really hard on showing their mental images through pictures. In this activity, my students listened to several poems. They then chose one to read again and illustrate what they imagined. On day 2 they met with other students who read the same poem and compared their drawings. We came to the conclusion that different people have different mental images because we don’t all have the same SCHEMA! What a big word for such little people. 🙂
Below I’ve included links to (4) Mental Image Worksheets I’ve created. These are great sheets for Reader’s Workshop. Just click on the links below to download.
