Picture Chats help students observe and discover pictures. By using picture chats, students look at items, characters and events within a picture.
Each Picture Chat has picture scenes that focuses on around school, out and about and fantasy scenes. There is a page of language ideas included to help promote a “chat” about the scene.
Vocabulary to learn- encourage students to name all objects in the picture scene. A list of words is provided to help prompt the words needed.
Questions- Each scene has a list of ‘Wh’ questions to ask which relate to the picture scene. Included are ‘what’, ‘who’, ‘where’, ‘when’, ‘why’ and ‘How’ questions.
Discussion prompts- these ideas are to encourage further discussion after the picture chat while relating back to the picture and a student own personal experiences.
Use picture chats with individual students or small groups. Print and laminate for long, lasting use. Provide students with individual copies of picture scenes or print picture scenes at poster size. Happy chatting!
