Regarding how teachers teach reading, it’s alarming that pictures get a bad rap. One of the best ways to help children read is by reading them picture books they like starting when they’re young. Teachers should continue in every grade to let students explore books and discuss the stories they read and like. Picture books are critical to reading comprehension.
Children adore picture books and then move on to chapter books with fewer pictures, and soon, they are reading novels without pictures. When pictures are connected to teaching skills, it’s a win-win combination!
