These are challenging times, and your friends at Sesame Street are here to help. Their new hub is filled with videos, playful learning activities, and ways to help families stay physically and mentally healthy. 

The Sesame Street Muppets are staying home, too, but still connecting with friends online—and each week they post new videos, like Singalong with Elmo or Snack Time with Cookie Monster.

Today, they will talk about Racism - https://www.sesamestreet.org/  They are hoping you will be there!
