The PNC Foundation published this guide to share 10 different practices teachers can use to promote the language development and communication skills of infants and toddlers. One of the strategies mentioned is commenting on children’s actions, interests, or initiations. Teachers can make comments and ask questions in response to something a child has said to build the child’s language.
