We called these pictures Sound
I made a quick movie of the kids making the sounds they wrote on their pictures. They had to illustrate a form of transportation to connect to the authors' study.
I got the idea for this chart from Mrs.
Jump web page. I used a few different books and my class added more about the illustrations.
A wonderful book that connects to the study of illustrations in picture books is Katie Wood Ray's new book In Pictures and Words. The students are also working on Transportation stories similar to the style of Donald Crews. I am finding that some of my students stories are turning out to be great small moment books.
