To help reinforce visualizing what we read, we did a little “mental images” activity. I read…"I saw a man with a blue, blue nose; and red, red hair; and green, green toes. He had bells on his fingers and bells on his feet, and went DING-A-LING, up and down the street.” Everyone drew their mental image of these words then we shared them with each other. We compared them and discussed how they were all similar, but no two were exactly the same. They all had little differences that made them unique.
