In this activity, the caregiver will engage an infant in a “conversation.” During the interaction, the teacher can use a variety of labels, descriptors, and questions to expand vocabulary and build understanding. For example, the teacher might narrate a diaper change by saying, “Time to change your diaper… We need to take off your pants… Let’s see how your diaper is… Let’s wipe you nice and clean.”
