Talking about pictures

Talking about pictures is equally as important as reading words. It is fantastic to comment on unusual pictures and/or things you notice in the environment or in daily life. Asking children questions that are open-ended helps them to build their imagination and develop descriptive vocabulary. A great resource to find unusual pictures is called www.pobble365.com which is free – you will find a new photo on there every day! As children start to get more confident with their writing you could encourage them to make stories about the pictures they see.

Please see the videos below which demonstrate the different strategies you could use at home to support your child:
