I talk about reading as an internal picture making activity. I often talk to my students about making movies in my head when I read. Secondly, I model reading for pleasure and talk to my class about what I've read. Lastly, my students read to the wall. They stand before a wall and listen to themselves, listening to the story they're hearing, seeing how it sounds and how it looks internally. This improves flow and intonation too.
