She answers simple questions of texts and short videos through the pictographic system and verbally. Different activities are carried out to achieve the objectives in reading and writing such as, assemble the name letter by letter using pictograms to identify them, then they are written having a base, removing the visual support little by little, exercise is also used to connect points on the wall to assemble the name using strings to join it. For the recognition of the letters of the name, the fishbowl is used in order to fish the indicated letters, a game of grabbing or catching with the silhouette of a fomi hand different flowers that had letters and numbers glued.
