The kindergarten student had the opportunity to build a story and be efficient authors using “Wordless Books”.
A wordless book is a book that tells a story purely through illustrations. Wordless picture books are valuable tools for literacy development as they engage children, regardless of reading level, in prediction, critical thinking, meaning making and storytelling.
We worked on one page at a time and wrote our own story based on what was happening in the picture.
It was a perfect tool for making predictions. Starting with the cover page, students had the opportunity to predict and make up their versions of the story. Then, based on the information from the pictures, students were allowed to confirm or change their predictions.
