Moving on to Super Why

“Who’s got the power, the power to read?”  Dang that song is catchy!  If you have even seen Super Why then you know what I’m talking about.

Today was Jenna’s last day of watching Rusty and Rosy, for a long time.  She is 20.5 months old now, and has been watching it for almost two months.  I’ll still bring it Rusty and Rosy every once in a while if she asks for it, but we are now moving on.  Ideally, I’d like her to watch Leapfrog’s Letter and Talking Words Factory.  http://www.amazon.com/LeapFrog-Talking-Roy-Allen-Smith/dp/B0000INU6I  But our library’s computer system is being upgraded and I can’t put it on hold yet.  So in the meantime, we are going to start watching Super Why on PBS.  http://pbskids.org/superwhy/

Super Why has improved a lot over the past few years.  The first season it only used upper case letters as I recall.  Now they do a whole bunch with lower case, which is great.  I’m aiming to have Jenna watch Super Why once a day, with myself sitting next to her encouraging her to identify letters.
