It was Sid the Science Kid to the rescue @ MommyKnowsville this week. I am still fighting what is now a week long headache. Tuesday a.m. to keep Georgia still and quiet, I popped in Sid the Science Kid DVD from the folks at the Jim Henson Studios. WOW … for three straight days, it’s all she’s wanted to watch.
Over and over
she’s we’ve watched the first two episodes of SID THE SCIENCE KID a new educational animated television series that premieres September 1, 2008, on PBSKids (check local listings).
Normally, we don’t watch a ton of TV (yeah right), however, a mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do. When that means turning on the ‘boob-tube’ to make it through a few sick days, you do it. There’s a lot less guilt involved when you can turn on a quality program that promotes exploration, discovery and science readiness.
Yep, science for preschoolers! The program is based on the curriculum of Preschool Pathways to Science (PrePSÂ©), SID THE SCIENCE KID delves into childrenâ€™s natural curiosity about science in their everyday lives.
I love doing product reviews, this time it’s been a hoot to have Georgia join in the review fun. She’s a girl of few words.
Me: Georgia, do you like Sid the Science Kid?
Georgia: YEAH, YEAH, YEAH! (each YEAH was accompanied by a jump and a clap). Definitely a ‘2 thumbs up’.
Do your kids watch PBSKids?
