Grover’s Story Circle
Help Grover and friends create a brand-new story and share it aloud.
For one or two players.
Create stories together with Grover and friends! Follow the prompts to start a story and then help the Sesame friends take turns contributing. Then listen to Grover read the whole story aloud. Play again and again to create different versions of each story. Creating stories together can lead to a lot of silly storytelling fun!
Now try the game on your own—involve siblings, too! Making up a story together is a great chance to bond, learn new vocabulary, and explore family history and culture. You might tell a real or imagined story about a family trip, a holiday tradition, or a relative.
Explain that everyone brings different ideas to a story, because everyone imagines things in different ways. Point out that most stories have a beginning, a middle, and an end. You might write down the stories you create together, read them aloud, and invite children to illustrate them on their own or with siblings or friends.
My Classroom Circle
Children can create their own unique circle canvas to share their favorite things with their classroom community... and see what they may have in common.
When children feel welcome and included, school can feel like a learning party that they’re invited to each and every day!
C is for...
Classroom communities care, collaborate, show compassion… and celebrate!
