Utilizing the power of visual strategies, beginning readers learn to associate pictures with words. Students move original, Velcro-backed drawings to match, identify, label, sequence, and create sentences while learning to read! Children can also use the pictures to answer simple questions, follow directions, identify common objects/actions, respond to yes/no questions, and general language development.
This book teaches the letters of the alphabet and their initial sounds. (ex: The letter D sounds like duh-duh DUCK.) Students match, identify, and label the pictures before they place them on the appropriate square to match the letter with the same beginning sound. (ex: The picture of the “apple” will go next to the letter “A”.) You can also ask the students questions that they can answer verbally or by pointing to the correct picture. (ex: What do you use when it rains? Answer: umbrella, etc.)
