"View, Read, Do" Triangle
PBS hosts free parenting classes in our area and I love how they teach the “View, Read, Do” triangle. So when you VIEW a kids’ TV show, you can also READ about that episode’s topic and then DO something to practice it. For example, last week Brayden watched an episode on “Super Y” show about getting rid of germs. So, we looked at our book about where water comes from and then later practiced washing dishes and washing our hands. Or one time we watched a cartoon about making new friends, so we could read a book about friends and then practice being a good friend at the park or while visiting cousins. The more senses we involve, the more our kids are learning!
