Sesame Street Is Helping Kids Work Through the Challenges of Learning at Home

Sesame Street is known for their ability to reach kids at their level. They’ve created shows to help military children understand deployment, created characters to explain homelessness, and more.

This year, they’ve released a number of special events that have been designed to help children understand the pandemic.

Children can call their favorite Sesame Street characters for tips on staying home. Grover has tips for helping kids cope with the coronavirus. And Rosita teaches kids belly breathing and other calming techniques.

Now Ernie and Bert are joining in the fun with helping kids understand and cope with the challenges of eLearning.

Learning at home can have its challenges and well, Bert and Ernie are still trying to work through them! ? #SchoolsIN

As part of the #SchoolsIN campaign to encourage families, Bert and Ernie are talking to families all about remote learning.

The videos are designed to help empathize with families who know all too well the struggles of bringing school home long term.

Ernie and Bert are shown struggling with the sometimes chaotic conditions we all know families are dealing with while spending all their time at home during the pandemic.

The #SchoolsIn campaign is a national campaign from the Walton Family Foundation to provide inspiration, spotlight innovation, and build an inclusive community in support of student learning. 

The campaign encourages families, students, and educators to share on social media the ups and downs of keeping school in session, with a focus on student success during a difficult school year.

It reminds us that we’re all in this together, even if it is virtually for a little while.
