The Home/School Connection: Part 1 Visualizing and Verbalizing
“If I can’t picture it, I can’t understand it.” Albert Einstein
Visualizing and Verbalizing Materials Needed: –simple pictures (single image) –single word vocabulary (i.e.dog) –reading passages sentence by sentence multi-sentence by multi-sentence paragraph by paragraph
Structure Words what sizecolor number shape where movement mood background perspective when sound
I. Picture Imaging Show a picture to Visualize and Verbalize. Use structure words to question the child. Have the child tell you the main idea (or title) of the picture.
Picture to Picture : Step 1 Student describes the picture. I see a brown animal. ?
Picture to Picture: Step 2 Parent Questions using the Structure Words. What kind of animal is it? It is a dog.
Picture to Picture : Step 3 Check through the Structure Words for detailed imagery. Parent summarizes. I told you… Your words made me picture…
II. Sentence by Sentence Read a sentence to your child or have the child read the sentence to you. Use structure words to create a picture of the meaning of the sentence. Continue creating pictures with subsequent sentences (without structure words). Have the child summarize and tell you the main idea (or title) of the passage.
Sentence by Sentence : Step 1 Read a sentence to your child or have your child read a sentence to you. I see… What do those words make you picture?
Sentence by Sentence : Step 2 Question your child to develop detailed imagery using the Structure Words. I told you… Did you tell me what, size, color, etc…? Then check through the Structure Words. Continue describing other sentences but without the structure words to note what changes in the images.
Sentence by Sentence : Step 3 Encourage your child to give a Picture Summary for each sentence. Here I saw…. A Picture Summary is a retelling of each image that the child has pictured in his/her mind.
Sentence by Sentence : Step 4 Encourage your child to give a Word Summary then state the Main Idea. Pretend your friends just walked in the room. Tell them what the story is about. The Word Summary is a detailed summary of the passage. The Main Idea is a single sentence explaining what the passage is mostly about.
III. Multi-sentence by Multi-sentence Read 2-3 sentences (or have the child read) at once. Have the child describe the picture he/she visualizes in his/her mind for the meaning of those sentences. Question the child briefly to add details if needed. Have the child summarize and tell you the main idea (or title) of the passage.
IV. Paragraph by Paragraph Read a complete paragraph (or have the child read the paragraph) out loud. Have the child tell you what the paragraph is mostly about (summary). Do the same with each following paragraph. Have the child tell you the main idea of the entire passage.
