Library Time! Visualizing: Using Your Imagination
Using the story Creepy Carrots, students will imagine their most favorite fruit or vegetable, and then visualize the story as it takes over their world, much like poor Jasper Rabbit.

It’s Library Time with Ms. Couch! Talk to the students about all the different types of fruits and vegetables. Brainstorm a list on the whiteboard. Have them picture what their favorite one was (they can only pick one). Explain that we are going to read a story today about a rabbit that loves carrots. While we are reading the story I want them to visualize it’s them in the story and their favorite fruit or vegetable is trying to scare them. Read the story Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds....
Students will illustrate a picture using context clues to help them visualize.
My name is Amber Couch. I have been working in education for almost two decades as a homeschool English teacher, a middle and high school librarian, and an elementary teacher. I am a graduate of Nevada State College with a Bachelor's of Science in Elementary Education and a Masters of Science in Library Science from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. The best part of my job is helping students find their next favorite book. It brings me great joy to talk about books with kids, teachers, or parents. I can talk magic schools, dragons, space odysseys, love triangles, and tragic teenage angst all day. All my English lessons start with a novel, and are supported with articles, websites, virtual field trips, and cross-curricular units that delve into history, science, anthropology, and even astronomy.
Blank paper, colored pencils or crayons.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will participate in weekly class discussions on topics related to the books.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
