A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

Asking children to observe pictures is a smart way to introduce them to the thought processes we use to comprehend what we see and what we read.

By teaching students how to look at pictures, write about their observations, and connect their observations to comprehension strategies, you can build a strong foundation for the strategy work you do during your reading minilessons.

This set of resources includes a set of 20 high-interest, full-color photographs. Each photo has been carefully selected to appeal to students across all grade levels. That means even the earliest of readers will be able to make observations and use those observations to begin working with comprehension strategies. In addition to the photographs, this resource set includes comprehension strategy practice pages for both lower elementary and upper elementary students. The practice pages are designed to guide students as they work to comprehend pictures.
The comprehension strategy practice pages support students at they do the following:
  • Ask questions about the pictures
  • Determine the most important parts of the picture
  • Identify the photographer's purpose for taking the picture
  • Make connections to the picture
  • Make inferences about the picture
  • Make predictions about what could have happened before and after the picture was taken
  • Retell and Summarize what's happening in the picture
  • Synthesize their thoughts about the picture
  • Identify a text structure represented in the picture
