The current study investigates how elementary teachers perceive and use engaging oral strategies. The findings reveal that a kindergarten teacher viewed such strategies negatively and employed only a few figurative directives.

It is argued that teachers’ engaging oral strategies are multifunctional, serving important social and cognitive functions.
