I did not have the time to spend about 30 minutes to an hour in a preschool setting. So I did my observe on the video Five Basic Functions of Language. It is about three children and a woman playing in the park, discussing spiders.
My observation notes are:
Boy 1: I have spider under my bed.
Woman: You do?
Boy 2: I have spider under another bed.
Boy 3: I don’t have spider under my bed.
Boy 1: When I touch the spider and put on my bed it didn’t bite me.
Woman: No? Why not?
Boy 1: Because it bites only when you are crawling under the bed.
