I am sure most of the Mother’s know these two words ” SUPER WHY ”
As the tag line says ” With the power to read ” – It’s really gives the SUPER POWER to read and to who already are fluent readers , the confidence to read more and in knowing more vocabulary and the usage of words !
It is an awesome animated show , which aims at developing the Kids literacy skills… including spelling, reading, word usage , phonics..If your child is a budding or a fluent reader this is an awesome one to watch.. and it is really interactive…. and gets the kids involved…
Here is what exactly I wanted to explain ,but eventually found on the wiki page of SUPER WHY
The title character introduces himself as “Whyatt”, and welcomes the viewers to “Storybook Village”, a place where all fairy-tale characters reside. Then Whyatt hears a ringtone from his “Super Duper Computer”, which resembles a small red PDA. He answers the call and discovers that one of the other characters has a “Super Big Problem”. After investigating the nature of the problem, Whyatt summons the “Super Readers”, sending out the call: “Calling all Super Readers! To the Book Club!” The four characters, Whyatt, Pig, Red Riding Hood, and Princess Pea, then appear in front of the aforementioned Book Club, which is a building made of books. Whyatt then tells the viewer to “say YOUR name”, including them among the Super Readers.
Once the characters are assembled, Whyatt’s Book Club Mainframe, the main computer, is activated. He plugs in his Super Duper Computer and uploads data about the problem. Meanwhile, the character with the problem stands behind a small podium made of dominos and explains the situation.
Once the problem is discussed, Whyatt states, “When we have a question, we look…in a book!” Pig wonders, “Which book should we look in?” and in response, Princess Pea casts a magic spell to summon the appropriate book:
- Peas and Carrots, Carrots and Peas.
- Book come out, please, please, please!
The book then descends from the shelves, and Whyatt, inviting the audience to read along, summarizes the problem faced by the book’s characters, drawing a parallel to the problem the Super Readers are trying to solve.
The goal of the Super Readers is to follow the storyline to solve the problem. As they progress through the events of the story, they encounter obstacles, which can be solved by applying their literacy skills to change the story (for instance, changing the prince in “The Frog Prince” back into a frog because the princess liked him better that way). As they overcome these obstacles, they are rewarded with red glittery “Super Letters”. These Super Letters are then uploaded into the Super Duper Computer, eventually forming the word(s) that make up the solution to the Super Big Problem. The audience members are encouraged to look for Super Letters throughout the story, and to identify them when they appear.”
Yuvan just loves to watch this and interact with Whyatt… and there is a page on the web linked , Which gives more access to solving the literacy problems, which is definitely a useful tool for the kids to get better with their literacy skills as well enjoy doing the kids way 🙂
The related many SUPER WHY videos can be found on You tube , as well for Singaporean audience it airs on the Ch 108 – Okto !
Yuvan loves reading the sentences and knows a lot of vocabulary and this will help them follow the storyline throughout the episode until they find the solution!!!
