Creating pictures in your head is part of reading enjoyment and an important comprehension skill. Planning opportunities for children to make mental images will deepen their comprehension. Practice is crucial for visualising to become an automatic process. Text: The Red Poppy by David Hill The children completed a visualization activity based on The Red Poppy by David Hill as part of our ANZAC focus. They were asked to visualize part of the story, draw it and write a description. A poppy was made earlier and attached.

I absolutely love this! The worksamples are just beautiful. We did poppy art today which the kids just loved too and they also turned out really well 🙂
