“A Picture Tells A Thousand Words”
Wordless Books are a great way of supporting children’s literacy and language development through vocabulary, oral langauge comprehension and narrative skills. In a previous post last year we shared the Scottish Book Trust’s guidance on using wordless books in schools and libraries.
Using these practitioners can:
develop children’s langauge in context by making comments, describing what they see
ask developmentally appropriate questions, to support children’s verbal reasoning and abstract thinking
develop children’s sequence and narrative skills to retell and create texts.
