Stories to Practise Reading:
Visual Literacy: Watch Miss Mc Geough’s Visual Literacy challenge
‘If It Is Not a ____, Then What Is It?’ Challenge your child to finish drawing the given picture and send in their illustrations to email@example.com. Visual literacy is connected to everything we do and learn! It’s important that we develop the visual literacy of children so that they learn to look at things critically and explore the messages and representations within visuals. In a world where we are bombarded with images, there has never been a more important time to foster visual perception and develop interpretation skills-showing children that often, all is not what it may seem! What better way than through creative exploration of visuals-or parts of them! We can’t wait to see what your children’s imaginative drawings look like!
