Katie Helps Elmo See the Adventure
Big changes? Big feelings? Big adventure!
When everything is new and different, there may be a lot of big feelings. Remind children that change can also be the start of a big adventure!
Watch the video together. Then:
- Talk about all the changes a new move, a new neighborhood and school, and new friends, may mean. Ask, “What do you think might be hard about this change? What might be exciting?”
