Drawing paper and pencils and/or crayons & markers.
An open area large enough for all students in the class to gather in a circle.
I CAN attend to a sustained spoken narrative.

I CAN create unique, detailed visual images of characters and settings.

I CAN discuss my visualizations with others, referencing specific details from the story to support my thinking.
After a brief discussion of the process of visualization, students listen to a short folktale. Next, with guidance from the Tom Lee, students sketch their own visualizations of a specific moment in the story. Finally, students compare and contrast all of their illustrations; the Tom Lee identifies individual details students have included in their drawing, and models how this process can be used to support descriptive writing. Stories differ for each grade level, reflecting more complex characters and themes.
1 Caregiver could assist with distributing papers and arranging the final review of student work.
