What's The Word On The Street?
Cadence's last babysitter, Camille, introduced her (and therefore, me) to a few fun, educational websites. Cadence's favorite website is www.sesameworkshop.org. They have little fun clips that Cadence likes to watch. I never really watched Sesame Street growing up, but I like what I see. Cadence learns a lot from this website. Her favorite part is the weekly podcast called "What's The Word on the Street?" There is a new vocabulary word explained through a video clip every week. The last three weeks the "Word on the Street" has been octagon, subtraction and pirouette. When asked what an octagon has, she replies "8 stunning angles and 8 glorious sides." Subtraction, she says, means to "take something away," and for pirouetee, she jumps in a circle. Cadence is SO SMART! She just keeps learning and learning. Another fun website she likes is fisherprice.com. To watch the podcasts, go to http://www.sesamestreet.org/podcasts/
