**Tip: Have the children guess what each piece of food is. I find that the kids love to correct my mistakes. So when I say, "Here's a strawberry!" but I put the banana on the felt board, they all shout that it's wrong and I keep putting each piece of food on the board until we get to the strawberry.
Mr. Jingles the Clown
Start out with Mr. Jingles saying hello to all the children. Then, ask the children to help him find his BIG RED NOSE as he has a show to do. Have all the shapes pieces (you can even make more) on the board and place each one where his nose is supposed to be. Again, the children LOVE to correct you when you place the wrong shape there. You can also ask the children to help you find Mr. Jingle's:
Blue and yellow hat
Purple and blue polka dot ball
And anything else that he may need for his show!
**Tip: This one is easy. Have the children tell you which bird belongs in which bird house.
