Title: Stories Without Words


1
Stories Without Words
  • Ways to incorporate wordless books into your
    classroom
  • Deborah Buckman
  • Latham School

Definition
  • Wordless books (stories without words) are books
    that contain illustrations but no text, allowing
    students to use their imagination to create their
    own stories.

3
Benefits
  • Illustrations can be read with varying story
    lines, which makes them appropriate for readers
    of all ages.
  • Creativity is encouraged. There is no perfect
    storyline.
  • Pre-readers, struggling readers and ELL students
    can be successful with them.
  • Universally understood, able to read foreign
    versions.

4
Mini Lesson Ideas
  • Dialogue (Speech Bubbles)
  • Setting development
  • Character descriptions
  • Sequencing of events
  • Story development
  • Alternate storylines
  • Comprehension

5
Projects
  • Digital Storytelling
  • Using scanned images from the book, student
    writes story and records using Photo Story or
    iMovie.
  • Great for portfolios and Parent nights.
  • Collaborated Classroom Books
  • Take book apart and laminate the pages for
    protection. Each student receives 1 page of the
    book and writes what is happening. Collect
    pictures, place on document camera as each
    student reads their corresponding story.

6
More Projects
  • Pair Share Writing
  • 2 students work collaboratively to write the
    words for the story.
  • Author/Illustrators
  • Younger student draws their own book and the
    older student (5th grade buddy) writes or types
    the dictated story.

7
Activity
  • Pass out a page or two from a wordless book.
  • Write a brief paragraph or sentence about the
    picture you received.
  • Collect the pictures but keep your written paper.
  • Show the picture on a document camera and have
    the person read what they wrote to correspond to
    their picture.
  • Collect the papers and bind into a class book.
