Below I have attached a video of me book talking quickly about a favorite of mine. Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIHM. By Robert C. O'Brien. This is one of the first books I remember as a read aloud in 2nd or 3rd grade. I had the most incredible mental movies during the reading. I had no idea that I was visualizing. I read this book at the end of the year to my class and also spend lots of time talking about visualization. We sketch after after each reading and keep a journal about our mind movies. We also watch the movie Mrs. Frisby and compare our visualizations to the movie. That is when the journal comes in handy. The class and I always agree that our visualizations are way better than the movie.
Just a heads up...for those you you that might want a copy just click the link above to purchase through Amazon. Also keep in Mind that Borders Books is going out of business. I am heading there today. You never know what you might find!
