Video Example

View the Resource

In this video exemplar, the teacher prompts the children to use their five senses to describe the starfish. When describing the smell, the teacher shared that the starfish smelt like rubber. Labeling an object using descriptive language builds children’s vocabulary and they will be more likely to use those same words when communicating with others.
