Sing a Song

Mother Goose Time!
Jack and Jill

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water;
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
and Jill came tumbling after.

Sesame Street: Elmo and Cookie Play a Guessing Game

Try This

Play The Guessing Box! Use a tissue box or cut a hole in a box. Pick out items together to put in the box. Let your child put his or her hand into the box and without looking, guess what the object is. Encourage your child to describe the way the object feels using words like soft, hard, bumpy, smooth, or squishy.
