Silly Pictures

by Help Me 2 Learn

Silly Pictures is an online (Super Star Online) interactive course designed to introduce reading and build vocabulary. They say that a picture is worth a thousand words and we believe that "they" (whoever "they" are) might be right. The purpose of Silly Pictures is to help beginning readers learn and recognize new words through the use of pictures and sounds. We call them Silly Pictures because the words are often combined to make silly pictures.

This mini course is an expanded version of activities found in our Beginning Reading with Phonics course. These skills are so important that we decided that we needed to give students more practice with these skills. This course has three sections:
Picture Builder: This very simple and powerful activity allows students to create pictures by selecting pictures that represent words. Their choice is then combined to create a new picture and a sentence about the picture with the words read to them.
Learn the Words: Our "Learn the Words" section allows students to increase their vocabulary by showing a picture of the word, the word with the sound of the word and the sounds (phonemes) that make up the word. Their understanding of the words is verified by a one-minute time test called a Speed Round.
Picture Stories: Now that students are familar with the words, they are now challenged to complete the first letter of the words used in a picture sentence.
