Wordless books are a new literacy tool that teachers can use in the classroom, but can they help student’s emergent literacy skills development? Emergent literacy skills help guide students in learning how to read. As teachers we need to find strategies to help student’s development in those skills to become successful readers. First grade students from Floyd Elementary School were used in this study to find out if their emergent literacy skills would improve if they wrote the text to a wordless book. Pre and Post assessments were used during the study. The results could have been different if we had used computers for typing the sentences and had a longer period of time to work with the wordless books.
