Calling All Super Readers!

Caroline's new favorite show is Super WHY! on PBS. I'm actually pretty impressed with it and how learning intensive it is for a kid's show - but it's PBS, so I guess I shouldn't be that surprised. It's basically a show to encourage early reading with lots of letter recognition, simple spelling, and rhyming. Caroline amazes me with how well she knows her letters and is understanding a lot of pre-reading type concepts.

But for her, that learning stuff is all well and good but she's totally got a crush on the main character, Wyatt. She talks about him quite frequently and then wants to pretend to be him. (I think she even blushes a little when the show comes on television.) We've had to start calling her Wyatt if we want her to do anything and she likes to pretend that Bryce is Alpha Pig. And now with her new interest in playing on the internet, she's obsessed with the Super WHY! website and likes to visit and sit and play all the songs over and over.

So here is her interpretation of the group singing Hip Hip Hooray by the Super Readers - the arm movement is something they do in the show but there's a little bit of kicking and dancing around that she hasn't quite mastered.



I also think I've convinced her to be Princess Presto from Super WHY! for Halloween. We have some really cute pink princess dress up clothes - I'm just glad she doesn't want to be Super Why!

Count us in on the Super Why club as well. I suppose I should make a disc of those shows for trips as well.
