Receptive language:  Understanding, receiving and processing verbal information  

Expressive Language: Effectively communicating wants & needs by putting words together

How different letters and sounds create words to speak, read and write.  Children develop this skill at preschool age through rhyming, alliteration, segmenting words into smaller units, combining and separating words, and understanding that words are made up of sounds that represent letters.
