Educational Programs

PBSKIDS.ORG is a great website. All of the programs broadcast on PBS appear on the website and there are great activities for children.


If you click on games, there are interactive stories you can choose from. There is a story-teller and activities the young boy can play along with as the story is read. The website encourages reading, counting, color recognition, math and many more educational tools. I would also suggest watching the programs on PBS. All of the programs are for kids and encourage the importance of education.


One of my favorite shows is Word World. All of the characters are animals and their bodies spell what they are. The characters spell out words by using letters around word world. For example, the duck needed a nest, so he found a N.E.S. and a T and put the letters together and the nest appeared. The show allows boys to recognize letters, sounds, and objects. Now when the object appears on the screen after the word is spelled out, the boys will recognize the object and associate it with the letters.


I would suggest a healthy amount of time watching educational programming. Although this subject is controversial, the programs are sort of a baby-sitter. Parents will agree that things need to be done around the house and sometimes mom and dad need the kids to stay occupied to get them done. The shows are educational, so everyone is a winner.

I believe it’s ok to watch educational shows on tv for a few hours a day.
