  • Use legos to build a brick wall like Grover did.
  • Buy some Grover stickers, like these and use them in a picture.
  • Print out several Grover coloring pages and make a book. It can be the same story or their own story. (see links for coloring pages below)
  • Grover has several alter egos. Super Grover, Dr. Grover, Marshall Grover, etc. Play dress up and pretend like Grover does.



In this video Grover reads this story aloud is hilarious. It's great for early readers too because the text is highlighted and they can follow along. **This a fabulous story for helping increase fluency as Grover's emotions are all over the place.
