Reading Strategies

One of our comprehension strategies this month is “Visualization.”  I picked up some “Braille” books at the library along with the regular version  books (“Green Eggs and Ham, Amelia Bedilia, Cat and Hat Comes Back, Frog and Toad are Friends”).  One of the students read the regular version of the book the others closed their eyes and followed along in the “Braille.”  They tried to visualize the story in their minds just like someone who was vision impaired.
