Sesame Workshop CoVid 19 Resources for Families

By 4/08/2020 11:11:00 AM ,

After launching their "Caring for Each Other" initiative, Sesame Workshop is adding new content to help families stay physically and mentally healthy as the Coronavirus pandemic continues.

New content includes animations on healthy habits, resources providing comfort, and activities that caregivers can use to spark learning in areas like reading, math, science, and more.

Families can watch animated spots, available in 18 languages, which include Elmo’s new “Washy Wash” song (updating the popular “Brushy Brush”), as well as Sesame Street Muppets learning how to sneeze properly and how caring for yourself means caring for each other.

Additional tools include coping strategies, child-friendly explanations to tough questions, and ways to help everyone stay healthy.

"As families around the world adjust to their new realities, parents and caregivers are looking for help in creating new routines, staying healthy, and fostering learning at home," said Dr. Rosemarie Truglio, Senior Vice President of Curriculum and Content, Sesame Workshop. "At Sesame Workshop, we’re here to support the caring adults in children’s lives as they help their children navigate these challenging times."

Also included are self-care tips for caregivers: as grownups try to adjust to their "for now normal," it’s important that they take care of themselves so that they can best care for their children.

The Caring for Each Other initiative will be updated on an ongoing basis, with resources designed to help parents provide comfort and manage anxiety, as well as help with creating routines, fostering playful learning at home, and staying physically and mentally healthy.

Families can watch Sesame Street episodes on HBO, PBS stations, and the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel, with an expanded offering of free on-demand episodes of Sesame Street on PBS KIDS digital platforms. Additionally, over 110 free Sesame Street ebooks are available on all major ebook platforms.
