Story development using wordless picture books by Reese

Filed under: Uncategorized — by dt78830 @ 3:45 am

I like the idea of having the children describe the picture and then write a sentence to go along with it.  What better way to promote language and creativity.  This would definitely improve writing.  I liked how the children got into pairs and used sticky notes and wrote their stories.  Also, when they got together with their visitors the questions asked seemed to give the child wonderful feedback to see if he wrote a story that matched to the pictures.  I definitely want to try this at some point in my teaching.  I believe this would produce great writers.

  1. You need to post about the little boy who picture point read as he was going through the wordless picture book. What a cute story but good example of how students model what they see their peers and teachers doing.
