Happy 50th Anniversary Sesame Street!

 

Sesame Street is 50!
Happy Anniversary!

“It started 50 years ago—a colorful community of monsters, birds, grouches, and humans. A place where everyone counts. For our anniversary, we are bringing people together from streets far and wide to celebrate 50 years and counting. A yearlong celebration with a celebrity-studded special, press and social buzz, events, partner activations, and social impact.”

I loved celebrating at the Sesame Street Road Show in Los Angeles.
I also got to see two Sesame Street shows at Beaches Turks and Caicos!

When I was a little girl, we lived on Fort Benning military base in Georgia. My parents needed a special antennae so that I could watch Sesame Street on television. It was very important to them that I could watch this new show which was for small children like me.

Sesame Street: Ready for School! A Parent’s Guide to Playful Learning for Children Ages 2 to 5:

“For the past 50 years, Sesame Street has stood at the forefront of child development, stimulating and nurturing the minds of preschoolers not only through the iconic TV show, but also through books, games, mobile apps, and community engagement initiatives. With Ready for School!, Senior VP of Curriculum and Content at Sesame Workshop Dr. Rosemarie Truglio shares all the research-based, curriculum-directed school readiness skills that have made Sesame Street the preeminent children’s TV program, and that every parent needs in order to get their preschooler ready for lifelong learning.

“Each of the book’s eight chapters focuses on a key area: language, literacy, math, science, logic & reasoning, social & emotional development, healthy habits, and the arts. An essential dynamic of Ready for School! is its emphasis on the importance of play in a child’s learning process. To respond to that need, dozens of “Play & Learn” activities are included to aid parents in educating their children: at the kitchen table, on the bus, in the park, or in the preschool classroom while playing together. In addition, the book recommends scores of hints, tips, ideas for useful products, and deep-dives on more complex topics for parents, all designed to make preparing young kids for school easy and joyful.”
