46 Years of Sunny Days on Sesame Street

Forty-six years young on November 10th, Sesame Street is a national treasure — for adults as well as children.  As we see in this video clip, you don’t have to be a kid to enjoy Sesame Street.  In fact, the parent of a former student once told me that when she came to this country from Lebanon, she learned English by watching Sesame Street.

Sesame Street offers resources that extend beyond watching the program.  At PBS LearningMedia, students can learn how the formation of The Children’s Television Workshop in 1966 launched Sesame Street in this video excerpt from In Their Own Words: Jim Henson, which is accompanied by more video excerpts.  And at sesamestreet.org you’ll find preschool games, videos and coloring pages.
