Language Activities

Picture Poems

Adapting familiar poems and chants with pictures/words can help prepare children with language difficulties for the major hurdle of applying their language skills to the task of learning to read. By using visual supports of pictures, it may allow success.

The pictures increase the children's success in matching voice to text. They can touch each picture as they say each word. Even non-readers can "read" the poems and begin practicing the reading behavior of matching voice to "print".
