Following our blog post last term on ‘Wordless Books – A Picture Tells a Thousand Words’, the Scottish Book Trust have reccommended a list of ten picture books for children aged 8-11.
Wordless Books are a great way of supporting children’s literacy and language development through vocabulary, oral langauge comprehension and narrative skills.
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.
