    What texts do you use for teaching mental images? I struggled with this unit last year. I used some of the suggestions from Debbie Miller, and many poems, but I was wondering what other teachers use to teach mental images. (I teach first.)

    I use making meaning, and in it you will find the following books used for visualizing:

    A Tree is Nice
    Father, Mothers, Sister, Brothers- the poem "My baby brother"
    Poppleton and Friends- Dry Skin
    Days with Frog and Toad- The Kite
    Paperboy- (this is a great one)
    Fireflies
    Abuela


    I hope this helps!

    btw, this is for second grade
