They are encouraged to comment and ask questions about a story, retell a story, and use predictions for the outcome of a story.
Look how engaged these preschoolers are! They listen, they learn, and they are getting ready for Pre-K!
TECHNOLOGY is an everyday part of our society and will continue to expand in our children's lives.
