Guided by the Cat, the children figure things out by engaging in science inquiry. Each half-hour episode consists of two 11-minute animated adventures, along with corresponding short animated clips.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. A breakthrough preschool series designed to help kids with the critical skills that they need to learn to read (and love to read!) As recommended by the national reading panel (alphabet skills, word families, spelling, comprehension, and vocabulary). In every episode, one of the friends encounters a problem with another Storybrook Village character (for instance, Jill from the Jack and Jill rhyme is not being nice). As in real life, the problems require preschool social skills to resolve. And that's when Super Why gets super-powered! Whyatt calls his fairy tale friends to their secret clubhouse, named "The Book Club," where they transform themselves from mere mortals into literacy-powered super heroes: Alpha Pig with "alphabet power," Wonder Red with "word power," Princess Presto with "spelling power," Super Why with the "power to read," and your child-super You, with the "power to help." using their super powers, these super readers literally fly inside books. The adventure begins as the Super Readers find out how famous fictional characters handled similar situations (why is the Big Bad Wolf so big and bad?) This adventure inside a book helps the Super Readers figure out the answers to their own problems. Be prepared to hear: Super Why! And Super Readers to the rescue!

Children sat on stage in the Peanut Gallery, thus making this show a forerunner of interactive programming we enjoy today. The primary value of the series is to educate and entertain elementary school aged children. In addition, both older children and monitoring adults will find this series amusing and quite charming as Howdy Doody is a timeless character who has an interactive quality. Educationally, the series offers opportunities for parents and teachers to teach lessons related to language, character development, science, and listening skills. In accordance with the 1990 Children's Television Act (ATC) intended to increase educational and informational programming for children on television, HOWDY DOODY clearly meets the goals of providing children with a television show that meets CORE requirements of the FCC as follows - 1. Issues such as bullying, establishing trust and courtesy are faced and resolved in the episodes. 2. Responsibility is presented in a positive and encouraging manner. 3. Making choices in life, mastery of attachment and separation are emphasized in each episode. 4. Issues of competition and loyalty are conveyed throughout the series.

Like many of today's kids, Nature Cat is eager and enthusiastic about outside activities, but is at times intimidated by them. With the help of his animal friends, Nature Cat embarks on action-packed adventures that include exciting missions full of nature investigation, "aha" discovery moments and humor, all while inspiring children to go outside and "play the show."

The goal of Martha Speaks is to increase oral vocabulary, the words we use when we talk. The shows are not trying to teach kids how to read. They are designed to help kids understand what words mean when they hear them; words like retrieve, sprout, and crave. Vocabulary is one thing that predicts if children will be good readers. Once they are in school and they see these words, children will need to know what they mean. If children have heard the words before, that familiarity will help them as they learn to read. Martha Speaks is designed to teach up to 20 words in each show. And how better to get kids excited about learning and trying out new words than with a talking dog, who just can't stop talking?!

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The goal of Martha Speaks is to increase oral vocabulary, the words we use when we talk. The shows are not trying to teach kids how to read. They are designed to help kids understand what words mean when they hear them; words like retrieve, sprout, and crave. Vocabulary is one thing that predicts if children will be good readers. Once they are in school and they see these words, children will need to know what they mean. If children have heard the words before, that familiarity will help them as they learn to read. Martha Speaks is designed to teach up to 20 words in each show. And how better to get kids excited about learning and trying out new words than with a talking dog, who just can't stop talking?!

Whyatt calls his fairy tale friends to their secret clubhouse, named "The Book Club," where they transform themselves from mere mortals into literacy-powered super heroes: Alpha Pig with "alphabet power," Wonder Red with "word power," Princess Presto with "spelling power," Super Why with the "power to read," and your child-super You, with the "power to help." using their super powers, these super readers literally fly inside books. The adventure begins as the Super Readers find out how famous fictional characters handled similar situations (why is the Big Bad Wolf so big and bad?) This adventure inside a book helps the Super Readers figure out the answers to their own problems. Be prepared to hear: Super Why! And Super Readers to the rescue!
