Observe the child during classroom activities.
No elicitation needed.
During the classroom day, the child seeks peers for interaction and conversation rather than the adult.
Socialization and friendships are developing at this age. Early childhood educators need to give children opportunities to interact, discuss, and problem solve together, in pairs, small, and large groups. Each type of interaction builds different sets of conversational skills.
