I just wanted to take a minute to tell you about 2 of my favorite educational shows for pre-readers and early readers. Word World and Super Why on PBS. I like the fact that both of these shows use phonics to teach kids how to segment and blend words, teach concepts of print, teach sentence structure, as well as teach cause and effect. There are many other great aspects of these shows too, most importantly is the fact that my kids find them entertaining. I hope that you and your family will enjoy them as well.
