Today’s classrooms are bombarded with demands of all kinds. Teachers work to find balance to provide time to play and time to assess, time to rest and time to run, time for technology and time to teach about health and wellness. In the midst of this balancing act, teachers seek time to interact with children in meaningful ways. Positive interactions between caregivers and children are important for language development. These interactions provide opportunities to use words and engage in conversations.
