The SUPER GEEK HEROES are a unique group of super-kids... having fun in turn with a mission to learn! Their seven friendly ‘super-powers’ are derived from the three prime and four specific development areas of the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’.
These are... Personal, Social & Emotional Development, Understanding the World, Communication & Language, Literacy, Numeracy, Physical Development, and Creative Arts & Design.
By introducing "superhero characters" to represent learning and development areas within EYFS, children (and adults) interact more effectively when they understand and relate to their meaning. The use of fun animated 3D characters in this way make children’s learning and development cool, exciting and interesting right through their early years and beyond.
Meet the characters and their representative learning and development areas within the early years foundation stage; Jake Jotter (Literacy), Mille Maths (Mathematics), Peter Planet (Understanding the World), Ant Active (Physical Development), Vicky Voice (Communication & Language), Ronnie Rock (Expressive Arts & Design) and Suzi Smiles (Personal, Social & Emotional Development)...
When it comes to a new way of learning, I'll happily try it out with my children as education is highly important.
With Alesha being 7 years old, I knew she would happily sit and watch the video whilst taking in some information, but I wasn't too sure if Alana would, with only being 4 and not a big TV/cartoon person.
To my surprise both girls sat lovely on the couch with my laptop watching the videos over on youtube.
Within a couple of seconds Alana said to Alesha, "which character do you want to be as I'm going to be Suzi Smiles"?
It was lovely for me to watch them both totally engrossed in an educational cartoon video, with no bickering amongst them. I myself found the video rather interesting. The bright colour and the different types of characters caught the kids eyes.
Why not pop on over to youtube for yourself and see what I'm talking about. Let me know your thoughts and did you find your little ones totally glued to the computer or TV screen whilst watching Super Geek Heros? https://www.youtube.com/supergeekheroes
If your little one enjoys colouring in or other edicational activites pop on over to http://www.supergeekheroes.com/ where you will find various print outs. We have just printed the sheet for Alesha to, fill in the clock faces to help with telling the time.
I have promised my two that they can sit and watch some more episodes on their tablets after tea time tomorrow (when they get an hour tablet time). With that in mind they went upstairs at bedtime yapping away about 'Super Geek Heros'.
It's no doubt been a big hit in our house, when earlier on I didn't think Alana would be interested, but mummy was wrong.
