Transcript Matching Illustrations to the Text (Fiction)— Let's Practise!
Goopaw says get ready to practise matching illustrations to the text (fiction). Illustrations are the pictures or images in a story that show what is happening. Good readers look carefully at the illustrations in a story to help them understand the words. Let's see if we can match these pictures with the words we hear. Here is an example. The blue bird flew over the rainbow. Which illustration matches the words best? This one because it has a blue bird and rainbow just like the words said. Let's look at some more illustrations. They drove off into the sunset. Which illustration matches the words best? This one because it shows a car driving into the sunset. Here is the next set. Once upon a time, there was a frog and a pumpkin. Which illustration matches the words best? This one because it has both a frog and a pumpkin. Here is the next example. He ran away as fast as he could! Which illustration matches the words best? This one because it shows the boy running instead of sitting. Here is the last one. She fell fast asleep. Which illustration matches the words best? This one because we see that the girl is sleeping not eating. Goopaw had so much fun practising with you today! See you next time!
