Wordless Books

Seems like a contradiction, right? Books without words can be used in a multitude of ways. You can use them to have kiddos describe pictures, or as a visual prompt for a student to sequence a story. They are also great because they are easy to use with kiddos who cannot read. There are a vast array or wordless books available on Amazon.

Do you use wordless books in therapy? What type of activities do you use? Are there specific wordless books that you love?

One thought on “Wordless Books

  1. Thanks for reminding me of this therapy technique. I love the “Carl” series of books including “Good Dog, Carl” by Alexandra Day. These particular books are great for describing character traits, describing actions, and inferencing. When you use “wordless” books, it seems like the students feel freer to create their own sentences vs. possibly reading the written sentence wrong. ( They are so afraid of making a mistake, and many of them DO struggle to read.) These books become stories the students can “read” over and over and hopefully show improvement with language skills including use of attributes, verb tense, and overall sentence structure.
