This teacher consistently responds to the children’s communication attempts in a positive way. She engages them in conversations and listens attentively. When a child says “no” to another child, the teacher continues the interaction by explaining that he wants to help and models how to ask a friend if they want help. Noticing and responding to children’s communication makes them feel valued.
