Strengthening the Core: Modeling January Words
Looking for some ways to help your AAC learners become more competent in using core words? Here’s an approach you may want to try: Keep it manageable by choosing only a dozen or two core words to focus on each month. In previous years, we shared lists of some core words to help you do just that.
- 2013: A Year of Core (12 words/month)
- 2014: A(nother) Year of Core (16 words/month; Note: These are different than the core words covered in 2013)
Those posts have links to downloadable grids with the core words for each month that can be used as a focal point for lesson planning.
Rather than introducing new words at this point, let’s take some time to strengthen our core by modeling the words in everyday interactions. Here are some suggested phrases, sentences, and questions for each of the core words from our 2013 list. Click on the image or visit the e-Toolbox to download a copy.
Stay tuned for suggested sentences for the 2014 words!
