Sequencing Stories in Spanish and English.
Steckbeck, Pamela Meza
The guide was designed for speech pathologists, bilingual teachers, and specialists in English as a second language who work with Spanish-speaking children. The guide contains twenty illustrated stories that facilitate the learning of auditory sequencing, auditory and visual memory, receptive and expressive vocabulary, and expressive language skills. Each story includes four illustrations, a vocabulary list, five simple questions, and conjugations of several verbs. The stories and vocabulary are given in both Spanish and English that is appropriate for children, with Spanish and English captions accompanying the illustrations for concise and consistent presentation. A recording form for keeping student records is also included. An introductory section gives guidelines and suggestions for classroom use of the stories. Story topics include calling Grandmother, painting the fence, a dog and his bone, washing one's face, making flour tortillas, a birthday party, flying a kite, going fishing, swimming, walking in the rain, the snowman, playing the guitar, selling popcorn, the pinata, new glasses, a haircut, a valentine gift, painting Easter eggs, carving a pumpkin, and buying a Christmas tree.
