#var:page_name# cover

This FREE workshop for educators gives participants an inside look at the creation of Sesame Street in Communities, a brand new educational model and resource center that uses research-based strategies and materials to guide and support healthy habits in young children, while also engaging the important adults in their lives.

Sesame Street in Communities provides educators and service providers with a wealth of free resources designed to engage families in everyday activities to help all children become smarter, stronger, and kinder. In this session, workshop-goers will explore these and other Sesame Street resources that will enhance their work with children and families, particularly around language and literacy.

This is a FREE, 3-credit hour professional development seminar and includes a tour of Puppets: World on a String and a Museum-led art making activity. Participants can register by emailing mtrow@shelburnemuseum.org.
