Elmo wants to play school, but who can be the teacher? Alan agrees to be Elmo’s pretend teacher while he’s working at Hooper’s Store. Mr. Alan first greets the class and then takes attendance, since this is what Elmo says happens in real school. Throughout Elmo’s day, he gets to draw a picture, listen to Mr. Alan read a book and sing the alphabet song.
Mr. Alan’s school is getting very popular. Some kids have joined the class, along with Old Macdonald’s goat and an elephant who has come all the way from Staten Island to learn how to rhyme. The elephant couldn’t have done it without the greatest teacher in the whole world. Elmo also thanks his favorite teacher, Mr. Alan, for the best day of pretend school ever!
