A rebus story uses symbols or pictures to represent parts of words or whole words. It could even be likened to being emojis for pre-schoolers! The images are either substituted for specific words or added with the words, allowing stories to be interpreted in a very creative way.

These kinds of stories encourage and motivate children to use creative writing thinking to understand and participate in them. We discovered from research that using images effectively can increase retention, enhance retrieval and improve comprehension, while reducing learning time. In addition, we have heard from many readers and students how beneficial it is learning using images and visuals.*

Make own rebus stories or use peers works and tickle children memory and creativity. It is more than easy to create it.
