At morning meeting we always practice the letter sounds we’ve learned so far. When I got to the C card, the children hesitated, and I could tell they were having trouble remembering the sound.
“C says /kuh/, right? C is for Cookie. Remember Cookie Monster’s song?” and I sang the whole thing, right there.
“….cookie cookie cookie starts with C!!!”
They looked at me blankly.
“Do you guys watch Sesame Street? Do you know Cookie Monster?”
One girl answered, “I don’t watch Sesame Street. I don’t like it,” and then another boy chimed in, “it’s boring!”
“I guess Sesame Street was more popular when I was a little girl,” I admitted. But now I need some Sesame Street dvd’s so I can share the glory of the Street with my class.
