thanks for the warm welcome, vincent! yes, i try to show sesame as much as possible to my kiddos & they LOVE it (they*ll always ask me for it)! technically, we*re not supposed to show TV @ the center where i work, so i sneak it on my cell phone (shh! LOL*). but i don*t see anything wrong with it. for example, yesterday we were teaching about sea animals & one of the little girls in my group has a seahorse doll that she sleeps with all the time. so, i picked up her "horsey" (that*s what she calls it. haha*) off the floor, & talked about its curly tail. then i showed my kids the SS clip "seahorse" with live action seahorses swimming with b/g music by the great joe raposo. they loved it & i love it! we must*ve watched it 3 times in that sitting alone! what can i say? they*re smart cookies w/ great taste! oops- i forgot to mention that i*ve also loved fraggle rock since i was child (wait- what am i saying? i*m still a child- @ heart!). i even watched it everyday on the hub ('til they took it off the air recently. boo. ). i have a fondness for jerry & frank (hence my name "hubbawha"- frank/"fraggle"-jerry. LOL* <3), although i love ALL the muppeteers, & ALL the shows of jim henson, because ALL are genius<3!!!
