Strategy Practice:  Visualizing
·       “The Monkey Garden”--WITHOUT LOOKING AT YOUR CHAPTER FROM YESTERDAY, list all the details from the five sense you can remember from yesterday in the correct boxes.
·       Flip your paper over, and on the back, write down anything you remember from the story that isn’t a sense:  The narrator wanted to die, for example.  You can also write down things you remember we discussed in class, as they related to the story.
·       Put your name on it, and turn it into the drawer.  We will talk about it again next week!  J
