'Sesame Street' Videos

 

As the summer winds down, your young child may be getting ready for preschool or the early grades. To help, 'Sesame Street' Videos are a fun way to introduce or review letters, numbers, spelling, music, cooperation, and more!

A variety of 'Sesame Street' characters and short musical scenes are easy to access by clicking on the 19 'buttons' at the bottom of the screen.

The 'Sesame Street' Videos are brought to you by the Sesame Workshop, a not-for-profit educational organization dedicated to helping children "grow smarter, stronger, and kinder."
