To extend and reinforce learning from the lesson, use the Picture-Text Puzzle Party game as a follow-up activity. After teaching the lesson, have students play the game to apply the concepts they've learned in a fun, collaborative setting. This not only helps students retain the information but also provides an opportunity to practice their problem-solving and teamwork skills. Encourage students to discuss their thought processes and strategies for matching illustrations with text during the game, further deepening their understanding of the relationship between illustrations and text in a story.
- Use simple, age-appropriate picture books that clearly demonstrate the relationship between illustrations and text.
- Encourage student participation by asking questions about the illustrations and how they connect to the story.
- Provide visual aids, such as posters or handouts, to reinforce the concept of matching illustrations to text.
- Students may think that illustrations are only for decoration and do not hold any importance in understanding the story.
- Students may assume that matching illustrations and text is based solely on matching colors or objects rather than understanding the context of the story.
- Students may believe that they can understand the story without reading the text if they only look at the illustrations.
Common Core Standard:
RL.K.7 - With prompting and support, describe the relationship between illustrations and the story in which they appear (e.g., what moment in a story an illustration depicts).
