Pictures with Reading

On days when we are reading I think that it would be a great idea to have some pictures to go with the stories. I was just reading on Ben Slavic’s blog and he was writing about stories that he creates of the students. In order to create a higher interest he is considering putting pictures to the stories he creates.

I think that this is a great idea. Sure it would take some time, but I think that the students would really get into it. Especially in a small school where everyone knows everyone. I thought about putting pictures to the stories we create in class and showing them the next day when they do the retell, but I am not sure if I should do that –since we are training their auditory comprehension. I do think that the pictures would be a great tool in reading. What a great idea!
