Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Chica is a five year old chick who spends her days with her parents in their costume shop, the Coop. The shop's one employee, Kelly, doubles as Chica's nanny and the ensemble is rounded out with Bunji, a large floppy eared rabbit and Stitches, a straw mannequin that sits in the window. In each episode Chica develops or encounters a problem that she cannot immediately resolve. Usually her issues involve impulse control, distractibility, judgment, and interpersonal behaviors. She and Kelly usually work on the problem through an adventure fantasy transformation to animation where Bunji and Stitches come alive and join Chica and Kelly for the problem solving process. The core educational content is primarily socioemotional development, and Chica learns how to express herself properly, think before she acts, and interact with others effectively. She often learns that it takes hard work and practice to become proficient at different skills.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Utilizing humor as a powerful learning tool, GSA sparks enthusiasm for writing through age appropriate sketch comedy, original songs, puppetry, and story theatre. 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. 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 academics kills, GSA focuses on the five Cs: Creativity, Curiosity, Confidence, Citizenship, Compassion.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Astroblast!" follows the adventures of a crew of space animals who run the Astroblast Space Station - the coolest hangout in the galaxy. The team of animals who run it are the best of friends - Comet, Halley, Sputnik, Radar and Jet - all under the watchful eye of Sal the Octopus. But when you stick five friends with very different personalities in one place - things are bound to get messy. Through it all, the "Astroblast!" crew accept their differences, help one another, make new friends, and discover that getting along is always out of this world. Every day brings a new adventure - big and small - whether it involves getting ready for a surprise birthday party for a Gremulon princess, dealing with demanding dairy-obsessed customers from the Milky Way, making peace between two spaceships of hungry space pirates, or helping a scary-looking, but shy, visitor make friends when no one will sit with him at lunch. "Astroblast!" is a Sprout original series that is co-produced with Scholastic Media, a division of Scholastic Inc, the global children's publishing, education and media company. Astroblast! is inspired by the books of the same name by award-winning author and illustrator Bob Kolar.
