Some incredible wordless picture books have been published this year. These books can be used to support literacy in a variety of ways.
Supporting Emergent & Beginning Readers
While “reading” a wordless picture book children practice literal and inferential messages, evaluate a character’s actions, understand the interrelationship of concepts presented and increase vocabulary.
Develop Story Lines
Wordless picture books or Stories without Words can be used to help children who struggle with story ideas and topics for writing. Children can be encouraged to create story lines orally and in writing. Instructional strategies could include: dialogue, setting development, character descriptions, sequencing of events, and story development.
Here are a few of my NEW favorites:
