Sketch to Stretch Your Thinking

Unit 5: Independent Reading
Lesson 12 of 20

Objective: SWBAT: use visualization as a comprehension strategy as they read independently.

Big Idea: I pull this lesson out on figurative rainy days--when my kids have been working really hard, when we're all a little burned out. I mean, who doesn't like a little doodling?
