Today we finished up our Dial 3 Assessments! Todays focus was on language.
Language is not just articulation. It’s rhyming and letter recognition and letter sounds. It’s knowing what to say in response to another persons question. Example : if I said “ what do you do when your thirsty ?” And a child looked at me and said “ tree.” We would score that item zero. Obviously the child is not understanding the language he’s been giving. Sometimes children can talk a lot but not understand conversational clues. These are all things we work on in preschool. Do I teach them ? Not really! It’s how we live and play together.
