Teaching Early Language and Literacy -TELL

Multimodal Expression - ME

The Tell Me program focuses on a small set of high frequency 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 "I Went Walking" (included) and "No, David", preschool teams target core words in shared reading, shared writing, and classroom routines. The Tell Me 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 manual describes the approach, activities, and teaching methods. Authors Carole Zangari and Lori Wise included 11 book-specific packets that give step-by-step guidance on teaching 4–6 core words in large group, small group, and individual activities.

Book packet materials available on included PDF USB drive.
