Pictures and words: A Practice session.
Draw a picture illustrating the following (no words allowed):
A bowl of fruit.
A pig with a hat.
Porcupine in house.
These are object representations and are pretty straight forward using pictures or words. Let’s try actions:
A man playing a violin.
A baby crying.
A boy flying a kite.
Relationships and interactions are also easily done.
A man playing Frisbee with his dog.
A woman yelling at her kids for breaking a window.
Kids playing hide-and-go-seek.
Abstract ideas and qualities are a mixed bag.
A man playing a violin badly.
A student dreaming up an excuse for not having done his homework.
A crowd of people waiting the final outcome in a sporting event.
Finally, sometimes words and pictures together are best!
A boy who is disappointed in what he got for Christmas (clothes).
A girl catching her boyfriend with another girl., and dumps him.
A soccer player accidentally scores in his own team’s goal, losing the game!
