The TELL ME MÁS program focuses on a small set of high frequency Spanish words (core vocabulary) that children use throughout the day and helps teachers and speech and language pathologists structure lessons to teach and practice those words using research supported strategies.
Using familiar books, such as Salí de paseo (included) and other books of your choice, preschool teams target core words in shared reading, shared writing, and classroom routines. The TELL ME MÁS program can be used with any AAC device, app, or system that includes core words like common verbs, pronouns, and prepositions. Parents are kept informed through weekly information packets. The TELL ME MÁS manual describes the approach, activities, and teaching methods. Authors Carole Zangari and Lori Wise include two book-specific packets that give step-by-step guidance on teaching four to six core words in large group, small group, and individual activities. Book packet material is also available via web access through Attainment’s HUB.Program packet includes:
- Warm-Up activities for Oso pardo, Oso pardo, ¿qué ves ahí? (Brown Bear)
- Salí de paseo by Sue Williams with activity materials
- Template for adapting children’s books that best teach common Spanish core words
