Abstract: The present study deals with visual literacy, with children of the first year of elementary school, in the settlement area "Jesus de Nazaré", on the island of Caratateua, known as Outeiro. It arose from the desire to understand to what extent one can be more applied, to make the reading of images happen in a significant way in the classroom, since imagery can be constructed from effects of meaning. Visual literacy consists of the ability to see, understand and finally interpret and communicate what has been interpreted through visualization (ROCHA, 2008). Visual literacy is also the ability to understand and produce visual messages, a capacity that generates benefits to teachers and students resulting from the inversion of the domain of writing for the use of the image, thus producing a revolution in the uses and effects of literacy, requiring the reader A visual literacy (PROCÓPIO; SOUZA, 2009). The purpose of the images is to contribute to the acquisition process of reading and writing through cognition and visual perception. In this way, this research aims to identify the visual reading levels of the six children of the first year of elementary school I, of the settlement, through visual texts of the textbook used in class from questions by induction and responses by induction and abduction and by specific objectives to analyze the types of statements in the textbook of images worked with children; to analyze the visual literacy activities used by the teachers of the children of the settlement and to analyze the five images chosen by the researcher from the textbook adopted in the classroom. The problem is: does the use of visual texts makes children more proficient in reading and writing activities? Thus, in the methodological approach with regard to the problem approach, qualitative and quantitative research was chosen (KUHN, 2006), from the point of view of the objectives, the use of exploratory research and bibliographic research (GIL, 2007), including notes from the ethnographic method (PEIRANO, 2008) and in the analysis of visual texts (DONDIS, 2003) and (PEIRCE, 2005) and in the theoretical consistency of visual literacy (SANTAELLA, NÖTH, 1998) and (SILVINO, 2012) among others. The results of the research indicate that by means of visual texts, the children of the settlement become more skilled in reading and writing activities and the images contribute to the improvement of the level of comprehension of these children in the process of writing and reading. It concludes, then, the undeniable contribution of visual literacy in the territorial and textual frontiers of contemporary school life.
