Discover the Power of Wordless Books

Wordless picture books have been around for well over 60 years. Almost every learning objective in the language arts curriculum of every grade level can be taught or enhanced using them. However, wordless books are most often associated with emergent readers, typically preschool and kindergarten aged students.

When I moved from the kindergarten classroom to fourth grade, I thought I would leave them behind but boy was I wrong! Wordless books are so flexible in their use that they can easily be used in the middle grade classroom. They enhance the creativity, vocabulary, and language development of all readers, at all stages for reading development!
