Wordless + Text Combinations

We continue to use wordless stories to practice reading comprehension. For some children, text is an obstacle to comprehsion, where the children rely on memorization of words in order to comprehend the story. Removing text as an obstacle and "reading" a wordless story is one strategy to practice comprehension (and perspective taking).

I stumbled upon some books that tell the story using some wordless picture pages and some pages with text. It's a really nice combination. Check out the "Olivia" series by author/illustrator Ian Falconer.

I wrote about wordless books HERE and HERE.
