You can't help but sing, laugh, and dance as Jeff performs his hilarious and interactive original songs. They’re southern-like grits mixed with country boy humor and Mr. Rogers’ schooling, helped along by a visit from the fuzziest guy in show business, Mr. BB Fuzz. Younger elementary students are given multiple opportunities to reinforce beginning and ending word sounds and syllables. Older elementary students explore creative writing by crafting their own rhymes with help from various reference books. All students have a blast connecting word play and poetry with songwriting and elements of music to create fascinating songs.
