I Didn't Say a Word/No Dije una Palabra.
Bielawski, Joseph G.; Pickens, Marjorie
This bilingual English/Spanish book of captioned photographs and its related teaching manual were created as a joyful experience in nonverbal communication for children and adults. It is intended to sharpen awareness of nonverbal messages expressed by children in their everyday environment. To help develop self-understanding and to encourage oral communication, each of 40 photos of children in various activities and situations and the accompanying four-line "stories" or captions present certain elements: (1) a common problem or situation; (2) how a child feels about it; (3) what a child might do about it; (4) what you would do about it. The photographs and text are designed to illustrate specific senses and emotions - taste, smell, touch, happiness, tiredness, fear, etc. English and Spanish vocabulary lists follow. The teacher's manual suggests best use of the book and recommends teaching procedures to develop various skills. These include discussion of background information, reading readiness, vocabulary enrichment, picture reading, discussion and independent thinking, and related activities. (CHK)
