There is kind of an annoying song playing the background though that really does not fit the venue.  Turn the sound off. :)

  1. Such great ideas on your blog! Thank you! I’ve also found Pixar Shorts to be great for talking about nonverbal language, perspective taking, thought bubbles, emotions, etc. A lot of them of them have no dialogue. So it gives the kids a chance to fill in the words or describe what is happening.
