Video Example

View the Resource

In this video exemplar, the teacher names or allows children to name the items once pulled out of the bucket. After the children could not name it, the teacher identified the animal as a stingray. 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.
