Teaching Standards-Based Reading Using Picture Books

To help students transfer reading skills into the content areas, use these 40 popular picture books (or others in your professional library) to teach:

  • Basic understanding when reading text in any content area (word meaning, figurative language, details, main idea, summary)
  • Literary elements that help make any text more meaningful
  • Comprehension of story elements – how they contribute to meaning, moving beyond literal meaning
  • Critical thinking that helps students read between and beyond the lines

Lessons include:

  • Summaries of the books
  • Reading skills and Common Core, NCTE/IRA, and TESOL standards
  • Teaching strategies and procedures
  • Higher-level thinking activities and extensions
  • Graphic organizers in English & Spanish

    Picture This! is the perfect supplemental aid for my 5th grade classroom. The picture books used are ones I already have in my room or readily available in the school library. The CD allows me to use the activities with my Elmo or through the Mimio without having to run off papers.

    Great Book!! It provides lessons that can be used in class as well as activities that correlate with the Common Core Standards (CCS). Also included in the book, with each lesson, are graphic organizers, suggestions on how to make connections, and extension activities.
