This is necessary for the comprehension of the theoretical as well as the research context of this study. Following this, the methodology and the Plan of Alternative Forms of Assessment in Early Childhood (SEMAPI) designed to conduct the research is outlined. The experiential approach of this study is composed of two parts: two pilot researches and a main one: In the first pilot four preschoolers who have not received the teaching of ToTs (further in this paper) are involved and in the second pilot another experimental group of four preschoolers, who have received the teaching of ToTs, are, also, involved. The main study was conducted with twelve preschoolers, The main survey was conducted with twelve (12) preschoolers of a kindergarten class of Alexandroupolis region, who did not participate in the two pilots.

It also appeared that the familiarity and confidence in the experienced condition during articulation helps them to participate and try.
