In response to the wide gap in literacy rates that prevails between children of high and low-income families, Sesame Workshop (www.sesameworkshop.org), the nonprofit organization behind Sesame Street, has partnered with the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (www.iicf.org) (IICF), a non-profit organization funded by the insurance industry and focused on community development across the United States, to launch Every Day is a Reading and Writing Day (www.sesamestreet.org/literacy). This new digital bilingual resource includes tips, games, and activities that parents, caregivers, and volunteers can engage children with to improve their reading and writing capabilities from an early age.
Sesame Street in Communities brings free video content of everyone's favorite, furry Muppet friends as they help children and the adults in their lives reach their highest potential. Grover and the gang will tackle a variety of topics that face children in the areas of health and well-being, school readiness, and emotional well-being. Some of the content and topics presented are more sensitive, so you should preview these videos before sharing with a child. For free resources and tips, follow us at http://www.facebook.com/SesameStreetInCommunities.
