I was browsing the library with my kids the other day and found the perfect book for Book Talk Thursday this week!
Our library loves to put out books on top of the shelves for people to choose. Some libraries I have been to actually put out seasonal books, but ours just puts out books the people have turned in. I know this because I have seen the librarians do this. AND... there was a Christmas book out this past week!
Anyway, the point is that they had this fun little book out, and I thought it was perfect for this springy time of year: Hank Finds an Egg.
Earlier during the day, I found my three year old looking at the pictures and making up the story. While reading it with her, I asked her inference type questions, and she got it! Her answers weren't spot on, but she showed understanding of the book. It just shows that no matter how young, children understand the world around them.
I plan to read this book again and again to see if the story and ideas change. I love wordless picture books for all ages because they lend themselves to so many different lessons ~ inferences, storytelling, predictions, the list goes on...
How do you use wordless picture books in your classroom to help with reading and reading comprehension?
