"Think Clouds" are my way of introducing relevant and interesting information about either the story or the author(s) and providing the teacher with an example to practice in class together.

Most of my Contextualized Grammar Reviews contain these "think clouds." Less cloudlike, there are speech bubbles or callouts. Once I figure out how to download some internet freebies, I'll change it up a bit. Here are a few examples from Bunnicula.
