Sesame Street has been around for decades, starting in the 60s. Their goal is to teach, educate and instill the fundamentals of everyday life. These include cognitive development, school subjects like math, spelling, reading, colors, and attributes like love, kindness, compassion and generosity. They also reach deeper and cultivate acceptance for different cultures, races and religions that live in our neighborhoods. Importantly, they make learning fun!
On February 1, a new Sesame Street – Elmo’s World: All Around The Neighborhood DVD & Digital will be released from Shout! Kids and Sesame Workshop. This active DVD will have kids taking a trip through and experiencing things that go on in Elmo’s hood.
Join Elmo and his friends as they learn about the wonderful people, places, and things on Sesame Street! With over two hours of Elmo’s World shorts, preschoolers will find joy in everything their neighborhood holds! Learn all about doctors, newspapers, machines, factories, ramps, sports, getting dressed, bowling, veterinarians, nighttime, maps, blocks, transportation, measuring and photographers!
Each segment features a different subject like doctors, newspapers, machines, and so on. Elmo, along with a helper like Grover will share a topic that they want to learn about. But first — what do we do to learn something new? We look it up! Elmo proceeds to share insight into each topic and show some examples. To instill what they have learned, kids can play an interactive game with Elmo where they will choose an object that goes with each subject. For instance, what does a doctor need to hear your heart? Options kids can choose from are a thermometer, stethoscope, chicken and tongue depressor. Elmo asks pondering questions and then helps kids make the right decision.
After each learning section, kids can join Elmo as he sings a little song and does the Monster Dance. Then you are off to learn another fun topic. Kids will enjoy each of these brief visual experiences with Elmo.
Included as an extra bonus on the DVD is Grover’s Jobs Through the Years Mash-Up. Grover is one of the hardest-working monsters out there! Take a trip down memory lane and revisit some of Grover’s best and silliest jobs over the years. From taxi driver to meteorologist, there’s nothing this furry friend can’t do!
