Video Example

View the Resource

In this video exemplar, the teacher shows a picture of children building a sand castle on a beach. She then asks the children how they would build a sand castle and how they would use a shovel. Teachers can engage in back-and-forth conversations by asking open-ended questions and then allowing them to respond before asking a follow-up question or moving on to another topic.
