- Sesame Street's "Talk, Listen, and Connect" Program for Military Deployment
Visit the above website where you can request a free copy of Sesame Street's "Talk, Listen, and Connect" program. The program is designed to help families deal with a military deployment, and is available for free to military families. The program kit contains a copy of a DVD in which Elmo's father is deployed. Elmo learns about what it means to be deployed, he talks to other kids who are going through the same thing, and discovers things that he can do to feel better while his dad is away. This is a great video for kids ages 3-7. I have used it with children in grades K-2, and they enjoyed it very much.
