Jared-David could spend all day on his tablet if I let him. The videos he normally watches are not exactly educational and more silly and dare I say pointless! (apologies to all you kinder and toy video makers). We recently were sent an email about a new video playlist which is educational and includes super heroes.
These super geek heroes are on a mission to learn! Children in foundation stage will benefit from watching these videos as the super heroes super powers come from three prime and four specific development areas which are, personal, social and emotional development, understanding the world, communication and language, literacy, numeracy, physical development and creative arts and design. So now you know a little bit about what they are let me introduce them to you.
He is the cheeky chap of the bunch. Jake's super powers help children with improving their reading and writing. Jake get's around by flying on his magic jet powered pencil.
Suzy is considerate, loving, upbeat and very helpful. Suzy is always kind to others and really values friendships. It's no surprise that Suzy uses her powers to support and help strengthen their emotional health and intelligence.
Vicky is a very bright girl, she can speak every language in the world! Vicky uses her powers to help children with communication. Vicky uses phonic sounds to help children with speaking clearly and the alphabet.
Ronnie loves nothing more than being creative, he is apparently a good singer! Ronnie zooms around his musical scooter helping children to become more creative by singing, dancing and painting.
Peter has a solar powered hover board which takes him from mission to mission. He is a very smart boy, an expert in the weather and the seasons. He knows about what grows and lives on our planet.
Ant loves all sports and knows so much about loads of them, football, golf, tennis etc. He is always full of energy. Ant uses his powers to help show children how they can be healthy through eating and playing.
Millie is super smart and as her name suggests very very good at maths. Millie likes to help children learn to love mathematics all the while bouncing around on her space hopper in the shape of the number five.
The videos are really nice to watch and each one varies on topic depending which super geek is on the episode. I really love that they are short, sweet and educational. I watched all the episodes and think they are perfect and a great alternative to the usual nonsense that my son watches. Jared-David is in foundation stage at school and everything is spoken and spelt out in phonics, this is something I really like about the videos. A lot of educational programmes on TV don't use phonics when spelling out and pronouncing words but these do which helps with keeping in line with his current learning style.
I set the playlist up for Jared-David, he wasn't very happy at first as he wanted to watch some toys being thrown into a paddling pool (really is that the entertainment for 5year olds?). I told Jared-David it was a super hero show and that he should just try and watch it see if he liked it. Well he must of liked it as he watched them all. Peter is his favourite and I have been told I need to buy a hoover board (hover board) for him for Christmas. Peter was also his favourite because he was teaching him all about what he is learning in school about seasons. Jared-David has already shown two of his friends super geek heroes and also his teacher who seemed very impressed. I gave the teacher the details of the videos and told her how to find them and she was going to watch them to see if it is something she could maybe use in the classroom.
