Is it just me, or does it seem like kids have a harder time using their imagination? Some students struggle to be creative and picture things in their mind. To practice visualization, I taped butcher paper to the wall and had kids paint what they were picturing as they listened to a certain type of music. I did this during our rotation time, so there five groups listening to five different types of music: mariachi, Italian, classical, luau and classic American tunes. At the end they compared how and why each group's pictures looked different from each other and connected this to visualizing when reading. They had so much fun!
