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 uses the vocabulary and activities that might make-up a typical day at home as a basis for the reading activities. It contains 4 picture pages and 12 sentence pages where students work on matching, identifying, and labeling pictures. Upon completion of those activities, students then use the pictures as a visual aid to complete simple sentences. Students read the sentences with or without the pictures as they become better readers, finally mixing up the sentence order to determine they are really reading and not just memorizing the sentence order. Similar to, ‘I Go To School’, pictures can also be used to answer simple functional questions. (ex: Where do you go when you are tired? Answer: To bed!)
