ABOUT THIS INTERACTIVE  

Overview

 

 

Young children can use descriptive language in authentic and purposeful ways to communicate in large-group settings. Using the What's in the Bag? interactive, young children develop speaking and listening skills as a part of language development, as well as connecting visual text with the printed word (shown at left). This shared-language experience emphasizes the importance of both those skills and, ultimately, the act for both participants is to relate meaning and expression.
