These are strategies from a training I have been through called GLAD- Guided Language Acquisition and Design. Its focus is on language.
This packet has observation charts (the kids walk around from chart to chart- have time to discuss the picture and then they write a question, comment or observation about each picture). It also has picture file cards- these are meant to be given to a group of children in which they will discuss the pictures that they are given.
There is also a group of picture file cards that have vocabulary words with them. These can be used in speaking or in writing about the pictures (great for stations).
