This week we started our visualization unit. We started with some great poems called, "Listen" and "Balloon Man". We listened to the poems several times and then had to discuss the images we saw in our minds with our partners. Then after listening to the "Balloon Man" poem once more. We went to draw what we thought the Balloon Man looked like. All of ours were so different and fun! Here is the "Balloon Man" Poem to read at home!
