It not only takes the support of an adult but the world around us. We don’t allow children to just sit there and struggle all the time. We want to challenge kids and want them to manage on their own–but we don’t want children to give up. We support children with language by listening, talking, encouraging them, and making eye contact. We also need to give children the space to explore the world around them and discover language on their own.
Just like the children working with their peers to build a snowman. Sometimes we take the road less traveled and sometimes we work together to further comprehension of the situation at hand.
