Visualizing What Their Minds See
Unit II recently enjoyed reading and learning with a new app on their iPads called Epic! Students listened to a book and responded by drawing pictures in their reading notebooks of what they envisioned. “We have learned that good readers use the skill of visualization,” said teacher Sherri Linville. “The students are building upon what their minds see to further their comprehension as they listen to the story.” Linville said the students later shared their pictures with classmates as they retold the story.
