Based on the books by Laurent de Brunhoff, Babar is an animated show about a young orphaned elephant who finds the strength to rise above the challenges he faces, including the death of his parents, as he journeys through life. Each episode of the program develops a social-emotional message such as taking responsibility, being patient and persistent in hard work, respecting privacy, learning to cope with unforeseen changes, and being honest. These messages emerge from the need to resolve a dilemma that is faced by Babar, or one of his friends or family members. This program aired on our primary channel only.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. EDUCATIONAL MISSION To encourage children to be enthusiastic about writing and reading. To help students build a foundation for writing, critical thinking, and problem solving. To promote character development as the diverse cast demonstrates cooperation and mutual respect. To provide educators with innovative and entertaining ways to teach their students. Green Screen Adventures (GSA) is an educational children's television series intended to promote literacy. Utilizing humor as a powerful learning tool, GSA sparks enthusiasm for writing through age-appropriate sketch comedy, original songs, puppetry, and story theater. By basing the stories on the writing of elementary school students, ages 7-13, children get the message that their words have power, and that their voices are being heard. Since its debut in 2007, GSA has produced 165 half-hour episodes that feature stories written by almost 1,000 elementary school students. GSA provides something that educators can't necessarily offer or replicate in a school setting, as it gives students a real world connection to their writing. Young students have the opportunity to understand the impact of writing on a broader audience by submitting their own writing to the show for consideration and adaptation. Green Screen's company of performers and writers reinforces critical writing skills and emphasizes positive social messages. In addition to academic skills, GSA focuses on the five Cs: Creativity, Curiosity, Confidence, Citizenship, Compassion. ACADEMICS - WRITING SKILLS The writers for GSA walk the delicate line of adaptation, staying true to each child's ideas and each student's words, while at the same time creating dynamic and educational programming. They take the best elements of a child's work - including descriptive language, plot, or character and expand upon them aiming to produce the greatest impact. GSA has developed an aesthetic that grabs viewers' attention, stimulates creativity, and emphasizes demonstrated writing skills. Educational content reflects current learning standards and is reviewed in collaboration with educators. GSA designs adaptations of students' work to emphasize and reinforce writing skills. BRAIN GAMES incorporate research papers and factual reports with an emphasis on organization and accuracy. STORY THEATER brings fiction to life and examines ideas and themes as well as the elements of character, setting, and plot. There is a natural expression of voice that enhances the writer's use of point-of-view whether they chose the use of first-person or third-person narrative. Descriptive language is acted upon with an emphasis on a rich and deepened vocabulary. It also integrates components like prediction, parts of speech, dialog, and punctuation. PUPILS' COURT analyzes the varying sides of arguments that are the foundation for powerful persuasive writing. POET TREE features haiku and other forms of poetry. FOOD FOLKS incorporates handmade puppets to provide yet another creative approach to storytelling. BEYOND WORDS highlights illustrations and visual art techniques. A primary goal is to generate more writing in schools and among students. One example of its success is from the Chicago Public Schools, the original partner for Green Screen Adventures, which is produced in and originates from Chicago. Over the past two years in one area of Chicago Public Schools, the participation rate in GSA has risen to 90%, with 27 of its schools submitting work to the program. One third of that area's schools have had more than a dozen of their students' stories featured on GSA. One can anticipate a similar growth pattern as the broadcast of the program expands across the country.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pearlie is an animated comedy series based on the children's book series Pearlie the Park Fairy by Wendy Harmer. Pearlie is an optimistic, light-hearted fairy who sees the good in everybody, but often gets into situations because her desire to help is larger than her capacity to deliver. Aimed for an audience within the 4-8 year old range, Pearlie focuses on the importance of following the rules, using good judgment and learning how to avoid getting into trouble. Since Pearlie was appointed by Fairy Head Quarters (HQ) to keep Jubilee Park in sparkling order, she has constant challenges with her basic goal of keeping everyone happy and making sure the park functions smoothly. Pearlie's nemesis and cousin Saphira often takes advantage of Pearlie's good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, we see Pearlie approach new tasks and problems with a great deal of enthusiasm, but without the organization required to get the job done. Through plot developments and with the assistance of her friends, Opal and Jasper, she learns what to do and what not to do in each situation so the park can be restored to order. This program aired on our primary channel only.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. EDUCATIONAL MISSION To encourage children to be enthusiastic about writing and reading. To help students build a foundation for writing, critical thinking, and problem solving. To promote character development as the diverse cast demonstrates cooperation and mutual respect. To provide educators with innovative and entertaining ways to teach their students. Green Screen Adventures (GSA) is an educational children's television series intended to promote literacy. Utilizing humor as a powerful learning tool, GSA sparks enthusiasm for writing through age-appropriate sketch comedy, original songs, puppetry, and story theater. By basing the stories on the writing of elementary school students, ages 7-13, children get the message that their words have power, and that their voices are being heard. Since its debut in 2007, GSA has produced 165 half-hour episodes that feature stories written by almost 1,000 elementary school students. GSA provides something that educators can't necessarily offer or replicate in a school setting, as it gives students a real world connection to their writing. Young students have the opportunity to understand the impact of writing on a broader audience by submitting their own writing to the show for consideration and adaptation. Green Screen's company of performers and writers reinforces critical writing skills and emphasizes positive social messages. In addition to academic skills, GSA focuses on the five Cs: Creativity, Curiosity, Confidence, Citizenship, Compassion. ACADEMICS - WRITING SKILLS The writers for GSA walk the delicate line of adaptation, staying true to each child's ideas and each student's words, while at the same time creating dynamic and educational programming. They take the best elements of a child's work - including descriptive language, plot, or character and expand upon them aiming to produce the greatest impact. GSA has developed an aesthetic that grabs viewers' attention, stimulates creativity, and emphasizes demonstrated writing skills. Educational content reflects current learning standards and is reviewed in collaboration with educators. GSA designs adaptations of students' work to emphasize and reinforce writing skills. BRAIN GAMES incorporate research papers and factual reports with an emphasis on organization and accuracy. STORY THEATER brings fiction to life and examines ideas and themes as well as the elements of character, setting, and plot. There is a natural expression of voice that enhances the writer's use of point-of-view whether they chose the use of first-person or third-person narrative. Descriptive language is acted upon with an emphasis on a rich and deepened vocabulary. It also integrates components like prediction, parts of speech, dialog, and punctuation. PUPILS' COURT analyzes the varying sides of arguments that are the foundation for powerful persuasive writing. POET TREE features haiku and other forms of poetry. FOOD FOLKS incorporates handmade puppets to provide yet another creative approach to storytelling. BEYOND WORDS highlights illustrations and visual art techniques. A primary goal is to generate more writing in schools and among students. One example of its success is from the Chicago Public Schools, the original partner for Green Screen Adventures, which is produced in and originates from Chicago. Over the past two years in one area of Chicago Public Schools, the participation rate in GSA has risen to 90%, with 27 of its schools submitting work to the program. One third of that area's schools have had more than a dozen of their students' stories featured on GSA.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Magic School Bus is based on a series of children's books about science written by Joanna Cole. The show features the ingenious Ms. Frizzle, an elementary school teacher and intrepid explorer who piles her students into her Magic School Bus and takes them on amazing field trips to impossible locations. The goal of each field trip is to answer questions or learn many new things about the place the class visits. Each episode is a fact filled expedition to places as diverse as the solar system, the human body, or even inside weather systems. The bus transforms to suit the environment and the kids freely explore and share their learning with each other and with Ms. Frizzle, who nudges her students to "make connections" and answer their own questions with research. The class pet, Lizzie, a large lizard, accompanies the class on their field trips. The content of the show is appropriate for children from ages 4 to 9 and in addition to all the factual content, the children also have a socio-emotional problem to solve that is embedded into the story line. This program aired on our primary channel only.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. EDUCATIONAL MISSION To encourage children to be enthusiastic about writing and reading. To help students build a foundation for writing, critical thinking, and problem solving. To promote character development as the diverse cast demonstrates cooperation and mutual respect. To provide educators with innovative and entertaining ways to teach their students. Green Screen Adventures (GSA) is an educational children's television series intended to promote literacy. Utilizing humor as a powerful learning tool, GSA sparks enthusiasm for writing through age-appropriate sketch comedy, original songs, puppetry, and story theater. By basing the stories on the writing of elementary school students, ages 7-13, children get the message that their words have power, and that their voices are being heard. Since its debut in 2007, GSA has produced 165 half-hour episodes that feature stories written by almost 1,000 elementary school students. GSA provides something that educators can't necessarily offer or replicate in a school setting, as it gives students a real world connection to their writing. Young students have the opportunity to understand the impact of writing on a broader audience by submitting their own writing to the show for consideration and adaptation. Green Screen's company of performers and writers reinforces critical writing skills and emphasizes positive social messages. In addition to academic skills, GSA focuses on the five Cs: Creativity, Curiosity, Confidence, Citizenship, Compassion. ACADEMICS - WRITING SKILLS The writers for GSA walk the delicate line of adaptation, staying true to each child's ideas and each student's words, while at the same time creating dynamic and educational programming. They take the best elements of a child's work - including descriptive language, plot, or character and expand upon them aiming to produce the greatest impact. GSA has developed an aesthetic that grabs viewers' attention, stimulates creativity, and emphasizes demonstrated writing skills. Educational content reflects current learning standards and is reviewed in collaboration with educators. GSA designs adaptations of students' work to emphasize and reinforce writing skills. BRAIN GAMES incorporate research papers and factual reports with an emphasis on organization and accuracy. STORY THEATER brings fiction to life and examines ideas and themes as well as the elements of character, setting, and plot. There is a natural expression of voice that enhances the writer's use of point-of-view whether they chose the use of first-person or third-person narrative. Descriptive language is acted upon with an emphasis on a rich and deepened vocabulary. It also integrates components like prediction, parts of speech, dialog, and punctuation. PUPILS' COURT analyzes the varying sides of arguments that are the foundation for powerful persuasive writing. POET TREE features haiku and other forms of poetry. FOOD FOLKS incorporates handmade puppets to provide yet another creative approach to storytelling. BEYOND WORDS highlights illustrations and visual art techniques. A primary goal is to generate more writing in schools and among students. One example of its success is from the Chicago Public Schools, the original partner for Green Screen Adventures, which is produced in and originates from Chicago. Over the past two years in one area of Chicago Public Schools, the participation rate in GSA has risen to 90%, with 27 of its schools submitting work to the program. One third of that area's schools have had more than a dozen of their students' stories featured on GSA. One can anticipate a similar growth pattern as the broadcast of the program expands across the country. SOCIO-EMOTIONAL GROWTH Its company of writers and performers brings a variety of life experiences to the program. Through their words and actions they serve as role models for the young viewers, demo

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Magic School Bus is based on a series of children's books about science written by Joanna Cole. The show features the ingenious Ms. Frizzle, an elementary school teacher and intrepid explorer who piles her students into her Magic School Bus and takes them on amazing field trips to impossible locations. The goal of each field trip is to answer questions or learn many new things about the place the class visits. Each episode is a fact filled expedition to places as diverse as the solar system, the human body, or even inside weather systems. The bus transforms to suit the environment and the kids freely explore and share their learning with each other and with Ms. Frizzle, who nudges her students to "make connections" and answer their own questions with research. The class pet, Lizzie, a large lizard, accompanies the class on their field trips. The content of the show is appropriate for children from ages 4 to 9 and in addition to all the factual content, the children also have a socio-emotional problem to solve that is embedded into the story line.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Pearlie is an animated comedy series based on the children's book series Pearlie the Park Fairy by Wendy Harmer. Pearlie is an optimistic, light-hearted fairy who sees the good in everybody, but often gets into situations because her desire to help is larger than her capacity to deliver. Aimed for an audience within the 4-8 year old range, Pearlie focuses on the importance of following the rules, using good judgment and learning how to avoid getting into trouble. Since Pearlie was appointed by Fairy Head Quarters (HQ) to keep Jubilee Park in sparkling order, she has constant challenges with her basic goal of keeping everyone happy and making sure the park functions smoothly. Pearlie's nemesis and cousin Saphira often takes advantage of Pearlie's good nature which requires that Pearlie must also frequently outwit the park bully. In each episode, we see Pearlie approach new tasks and problems with a great deal of enthusiasm, but without the organization required to get the job done. Through plot developments and with the assistance of her friends, Opal and Jasper, she learns what to do and what not to do in each situation so the park can be restored to order.
