Show. Interact. Create. Libby Bost


Lesson Objective: Recognize that words and pictures work together to create a story. Identify that illustrations correlate to the words on the page and there is order to a story.

"Show" activity: Peruse a handful of books with the class, point out the pictures and their correlation with the words on the page.

- Teacher will read the words on the page and not show students the pictures

- Teacher will ask students what they think the picture will be based on the words read aloud to them followed by showing them the actual picture
