Like a movie inside your head!

Maia's visualising sketches of Cry Baby

We have been reading the wonderful short stories of Paul Jennings. They are so enjoyable. We have also been learning about the reading comprehension strategy of visualising. As I read aloud Cry Baby, the students drew pictures of what was happening in the story. They also labelled their sketches. I was very impressed with their sketches and labels, which show their understanding of the story.
