Children communicate effectively.
Resources cannot be aligned to this standard, browse sub-standards to find lessons.
Provide play opportunities that include materials for child to practice oral and written communication skills (tape recorders, writing implements, paper, story props, and telephone).
Provide opportunities for child to speak publicly for a small group and acknowledge him/her in the effort.
Adjust communication to varied conversational and situational contexts.
Reduce a complicated story to seven or eight action sentences and act out movements with child (especially in support of English language learner). A good story to re-enact may be Three Billy Goats Gruff or How Crane Got Blue Eyes.
Recognize and encourage alternate forms of communication (dance, drumming, sign, story telling).
