It’s no secret that we enjoy a lot of programming from PBS Kids here at Rock Father HQ, so it should come as no surprise to other families with preschool-aged children that WordWorld is viewed on a frequent basis. For those that haven’t yet seen WordWorld, it’s a show in which words literally come alive as “WordFriends” – characters whose bodies spell the word they are. Throughout each episode, spelling and reading are taught through the thoughtful placement of various objects in the environment that are also comprised of words. Like most good shows, WordWorld has a Halloween edition, and it’s been a fixture in our 31 Days of Halloween since last year.
WordWorld: A KOOKY SPOOKY HALLOWEEN (out now on NCircle Entertainment and available from Walmart.com) is a 30 minute episode split between the title installment and another adventure called “Sheep’s Halloween Costume.” Both support the skills of phonics, spelling, vocabulary, letter knowledge, cognitive, and language development – all while being seasonally entertaining and fun!
While the DVD is inexpensive in itself (around $5), A KOOKY SPOOKY HALLOWEEN will be airing on most PBS stations on Halloween next week. Check out http://pbskids.org/ to find your local PBS station and airtimes.
