Synopsis

The Button Story by Debbie Weekly-Kirkland

There are lots of benefits to reading wordless books! Literacy is not simply about decoding words, but also involves understanding subtext and the ability to make inferences, so learning how to 'read' stories beyond literal text is very important.There are lots of benefits to reading wordless books! Literacy is not simply about decoding words, but also involves understanding subtext and the ability to make inferences, so learning how to 'read' stories beyond literal text is very important.Wordless boks have to tell the story without text, so they are the perfect tool for enhancing reading comprehension.1. Narrate the action: The first and maybe the most common approach to reading textless books is to simply narrate the illustrations.2. Ask questions: Questioning teaches your children that narrative clues lie outside of text.When answering our questions, children start to understand story elements like plot, character, conflict, theme and even symbolism. Questioning lays a foundation for when they are learning to write and create their own stories.
