Creating mental pictures or mind movies, makes the story come alive and helps your child better understand what he/she is reading. Visualizations come from all five senses and emotions.

To help your child create mental images, you might ask...

  • What are you picturing in your mind? | Quelle image est-ce que tu visualises dans ta tête ?
  • What is happening in the movie in your head? | Qu’est ce qui ce passe dans le film dans ta tête ?
  • When you read _______, what did you see/hear/smell/feel? | Lorsque tu lisais _______, qu’est-ce que tu voyais/entendais/sentais ?
