Ive found that most kids love doing a picture walk in stories before they read. This lets them get to know the characters and the plot a little more, especially in younger grades when the pictures are so prominent in the stories. It's also a good idea to have the pIctures act as clues for predicting the story as they go. So while you can do a complete book picture walk, also use them as supporting help in comprehension as you go along. See if students can tell when the picture matches the text or what detail in the text is the picture portraying.
