Word Picture Book Activity

Try this word picture book activity and see how one picture is truly worth a thousand words -- or is it the other way around?

What You'll Need:

  • Dictionary
  • Blank paper
  • Crayons or markers

Thousands of new words are waiting for you to discover them in your favorite dictionary. So why not get started learning every single one?

Step 1: Open your dictionary to a page at random.

Step 2: Find a word you've never seen before. Read the definition carefully. Once you understand what the new word means, illustrate it on a piece of blank paper.

Step 3: Add a new page to your Word Picture Book each week -- it's like having your own picture dictionary!

How far can you tell a story beginning every word with the same letter? Try our one-letter storytelling activity on the next page and see for yourself.
