Super WHY Christmas DVD giveaway


The winter break is fast approaching, and with all those days off from school, kids' brains have a tendency to go on vacation as well. Fortunately there are lots of fun activities you can do with your children to keep their minds active. One of my favorite kids' shows, Super WHY, sent me some tips from their experts about making the most of the season and keep them on track toward becoming "Super Readers". Super WHY was a huge help in getting 3Po and Jammy on the path to reading last summer, so I know firsthand that they really know their stuff! Here are their tips:


* Have your child decipher the special message inside your Christmas cards and read the names of family and friends out loud to you as you address the envelopes. Your “super readers” will enjoy reading the notes inside the holiday greetings that arrive in your own mailbox, too!

* Bring your kids along for some Christmas shopping and let them sound out the signs in the store (i.e. “toys,” “home & garden,” “bedding,” etc.).

* Help your children compose their “wish list” for Santa – and work together to write one for yourself, too!

* Get a cozy fire going or make some hot cocoa and warm up with your child while reading a Christmas classic storybook.


Even though 3Po and Jammy have made it through that first big reading hurdle -- sounding out letters to read words -- these tips are great for kids at their level as well. Your kids can also spend part of the winter break catching up on some Super WHY episodes on PBS, or on DVD. Their new DVD, "‘Twas the Night Before Christmas and Other Fairytale Adventures" is the perfect way to get young Super Readers in the holiday spirit, while keeping their literacy skills strong. Here's more information about the DVD:


The Super Readers are on a special mission to find out why Santa Claus visits children on Christmas. To find the answer to their question, the Super Readers fly into the classic story "'Twas the Night Before Christmas". While in the story, the Super Readers meet Santa and discover that he visits all the children because it makes both him and them happy.

Featuring four Super WHY episodes, “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas,” “The Ghost Who was Afraid of Halloween,” “The Three Feathers” and “The Stars in the Sky,” the engaging and adorable DVD offers even more literacy-focused fun with special features, including interactive games, music videos, printable activities, coloring pages and resources for parents!

Have them help you bake cookies as gifts for the neighbors. Between the measuring and reading ingredients together you are teaching them math and reading.
