    Hey Ya'll!

    For my new website I am writing a article on what sesame street has taught us, what has sesame street taught you (besides the ABC's and 123's and reading) and has that helped you in anyway? Also, why are you a sesame street and what made you a sesame street fan? thanks!

    For me, Sesame has taught me to belive in myself despite what others may think, to be myself, and kindness.

    Sesame Street taught me (in song titles) that:
    ...Cooperation makes it happen!
    ...there's Just one Me
    ...tu me gustas means I Like You

    It also gave me a great sense of humour and a love for furry monsters. Even scary monsters are friendly and have feelings too!! It taught me peaceful ways of problems solving and how to deal with people. And also how to deal with yourself: That being the true you is so important!

    pretty neat. it's hard for me to say or tell what SS or others have taught me I can't remember if I learned the alphabet or numbers through SS or books. probably both and funny thing I don't remember not knowing them. my earliest memory is at age 2 and always remembered watching SS along with the other PBS shows of the day.
