Visualizing or Making Mental Movies while Reading

We are going to practice "seeing" mental pictures while reading together. It's called visualization! 1. 📚Choose a book to read. 2. 📖Start reading the book aloud. 3. 🗣After 2 to 3 pages, stop. Close your eyes and describe the pictures or movie you see in your mind? 4. 📖Continue reading the book, stop at interesting parts and picture what you hear? 5. Tap the add button. 6. Take a photo of the page you visualized the best. 7. Tap the mic and describe how it was to make a "mental movie" while reading. 9. Tap the green check to save to your journal. 👨‍👧 Family Why: When readers make mental pictures of what is happening in a book, they are better able to understand and remember what they are reading about.
