How many of you have kids that watch PBS Kids shows? My daughters love to watch this channel. What I love about PBS Kids, is that it’s a very educational channel. My daughters have always learned a lot from these shows.
Have you watched WordWorld before? I was recently sent WordWorld It’s Time For School to review. This comes with the following episodes:
“Shark’s First Day of School”
It’s the first day of school for the youngest WordFriends, but Shark is afraid to go. With the help of his good buddy, Duck, and some gentle encouragement from their teacher, Cat, Shark’s fear turns to confidence, and by day’s end he’s at the head of the class. Build a Word: FLAG
“The Best Nest”
It’s Duck’s turn at show-and-tell at school, and he wants to bring the thing he loves the best: his nest! But when the nest breaks apart into letters, will Duck be able to retrieve them all in time? Build a Word: NEST
Duck and Dog become curious about compound words when they discover the word “sandbox” is made of two words. How many words can they pull apart in WordWorld before chaos breaks loose? Build a Word: SANDBOX
“Duck At Bat”
Duck loses the letter “b” to his baseball bat just before the big game is supposed to start. He tries to build other words to hit the ball – MAT, HAT – but soon learns that you need the right letter with the right sound to build the right word…and hit a homer! Build a Word: BAT
“Totally Terrific Duck”
Bear is going to paint everyone’s picture today, and Duck wants to look “totally terrific” for his portrait. Not to worry! Frog and Sheep help him build a tie, top hat, and tutu – because if you want to look totally terrific you need the letter “T.” A tie, top hat, and tutu? Now that’s one totally, totally, TOTALLY terrific-looking Duck! Build a Word: TIE
“Tick Tock Space Clock”
When a mysterious rocket lands in WordWorld, Duck pledges to help a robot track down a very important clock. He searches all over WordWorld, listening for the special sound that will lead the robot to the clock that will save his home planet. Build a Word: CLOCK
“Dog Wants to Play Ball”
Dog wants to play ball, but he’s having trouble communicating with his friends. Pig, Sheep, and Frog each think Dog wants to do what they want to do. When Bear actually takes the time to listen to Dog, Dog gets his wish…and everyone has a ball! Build a Word: BALL
“Welcome Home, Duck”
Frog, excited about Duck’s return from a long vacation, makes a “Welcome Home” banner to hang over Duck’s nest. Problem is, the dock connecting Frog’s log to Duck’s nest has broken, so Frog has to find another way across. Frog tries building a sock and a block to replace the dock, but it’s not until he builds a rock that he can land on, halfway across the pond, that he’s able to get across the water to Duck’s nest. Build a Word: ROCK
What I love about this show, is that it spells out words throughout the shows. This helps my daughters learn how to spell words and read as well. My oldest is heading to second grade and she knows how to read now, expect very hard words. She’s doing a great job, and this show can help her out a lot. My youngest is heading to kindergarten, and I know she’ll be learning how to read some in kindergarten too. This show is going to be great for helping out her as well.
If you’re looking for a movie that can really help teach your kids about reading, then make sure to check out WordWorld It’s Time For School! This is such a great show and we love watching it together. This is the perfect movie now since it’s for back to school time. The dvd is already out, so make sure to pick yours up today.
