In case you didn't know, our beloved Sesame Street is 40 years old on Tuesday! Like every other American child for the past 40 years, I grew up watching SS as a preschooler. While writing this post, I went to YouTube in order to find some of my favorite clips:


{"C is for cookie, that's good enough for me"}
This song still sometimes creeps into my head.


{"To serve you is my only pleasure, sir."}
This one's dedicated to my mom-Grover is her favorite.


{Dad, watch this one. It's the spoof of Mad Men-hilarious. "This makes me mad, very, very mad...MAD MEN!"}


{I know I've already posted this one, but factory clips just fascinate me.}


{From the fabulous 'Oinker Sisters'.}

As I've gotten older, I've realized how clever these writers were. When I was a child, I never saw the connection between the current events and celebrities, as I do now. I don't know how I would do it, but I want to show my future students some Sesame Street clips. Do yourself a favor and be a child again for half an hour. Find your favorite Sesame Street clip and enjoy.

Feel free to tell me who your favorite character was/your favorite clip was in the comments-I'd love to know!

sesame street is really amazing. they have a whole research team devoted to making sure the program is educational and they run studies on how educational it is!

Cookie, cookie, cookie starts with C!

If you remember watching that...and I do too, that means that that song was probably played a lot. But its still great!
