toddler time: everyone loves Elmo!

Mystery Box: Inside our polka dotted box, we found ELMO! What color is Elmo?

Books We Read: 
Elmo's Little Golden Book Favorites - We read two of the stories in this book- The Monsters on the Bus (sung with scarves) and My Name is Elmo

Color Game: 

I showed the kids some different objects – a bird, a turtle, a ball, a banana, etc. I asked them "Is this red like Elmo?" and we put all the red items in Elmo's red box.

Flannel Board: Hide and Seek with Elmo

I put four houses on the flannel board with a Sesame Street character hidden behind each one. We said, "Elmo is playing hide and seek. Elmo, are you in the yellow house? Let's take a peek!"

Puppet Song:

purchased from Amazon

We didn't have enough time today but I have five monster finger puppets for Five Little Monsters Jumping on the Bed. Good to have options!

Craft: Elmo paper bag puppets 

So easy! I printed (2 per page) Elmo faces on white paper for the kids to color and glue to a paper bag to make a puppet. 

Two groups today with about 18 kids each and things went really well! The kids really liked a program about one of their favorite characters.
