520    The purpose of the present study was to investigate 
       preschool teachers' linguistically responsive utterances 
       during circle time activities. The study considered 
       context, content, and request-level variables in 
       explaining variance in children's language and literacy 
       outcomes. Verbatim transcripts were used to analyze 
       teachers' talk at the utterance level. The proportion of 
       confirmatory continuations explained the greatest variance
       in growth in children's standardized PPVT scores and CAP 
       scores across the school year. The proportion of meaning-
       focused utterances that were confirmatory continuations 
       explained variation in children's growth in PPVT scores. 
       Results are discussed in terms of the role continuations 
       play in explaining variation in children's language and 
       literacy outcomes
