Terry's Tips

We want children to learn the difference between text (the words) and illusutrations (the pictures). When we read the story, we read the words. Point to each word as you read the story. Then ask children to talk about what they see in the picture. 

Extension Activity: There are printed words and pictures everywhere in our world. Ask children to point to words and pictures on signs or labels as you go about your everyday routines.
