Who Are the People in Your Neighborhood???

Learning happens everyday. Everyday is a great time to teach a child that neighborhoods are amazing. They are amazing because people get involved and people do care. Sesame Street made a song to help children understand what is a neighborhood. Here are the lyrics:


Oh, who are the people in your neighborhood?
In your neighborhood?
In your neighborhood?
Say, who are the people in your neighborhood?
The people that you meet each day

(a blue muppet, I believe, walks onstage)

[Bob: Oh, hi there, little fella.]

[Anything Muppet #1: Hello.]

[Bob: Hey, listen, know who you could be if I gave you this little hat and this bag to go over your shoulder?]

[Anything Muppet #1: I could be a laundry man.]

[Bob: No, not a laundry man.]
Here are the rest of the lyrics....

Growing up my neighbors were the most important people in my life. I played with their kids and they often took me on many field-trips. I have many fond memories of my neighbors and all the fun things we experienced together.  I encourage you to meet the people in your neighborhood.  Get inspired to try something new.
