North Oakview 3rd graders are currently in the middle of a 3-week unit exploring Wordless Books. Readers have been having discussions about this format, why author/illustrators would choose that format for their book, how to read a wordless book, and the huge variety of styles in wordless books. By analyzing illustrations critically, readers are building skills they will use for our upcoming Mock Caldecott unit, also!
Third graders have also had rich discussions about who wordless books are created for. After many thoughtful conversations, they have come to the conclusion that wordless books are for EVERYONE to enjoy! Check out some pictures of readers engaged with Wordless Books below!
