Creating Images

Visualising Worksheets

A reader’s comprehension improves when they can visualise what is happening in the text. Creating images (visualising) is an important strategy that needs explicit teaching. This strategy can be taught using our creating images worksheets. 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? Find 5 senses resources on our Graphic Organisers Resources Page.
