English /Reading /Reading Strategies /Visualising

Browse our collection of visualising worksheets aimed at helping students build a complete ‘picture’ of texts. A reader’s comprehension improves when he or she can visualise what is happening in the text. Creating images (visualising) is an important strategy that needs to be explicitly taught. Our creating images worksheets aim to help teach this skill. There are many other fun and easy ways to teach this skill with fiction or non-fiction texts. Readers should be encouraged to create rich images. What can you… See? Feel? Taste? Hear? Smell?
