Create a book!: Help your child write and illustrate their very own storybook featuring a doggy character like Woofster.
Visit the zoo!: Read all the signs together as you encounter the many different animals.
Send a postcard!: While you’re at the zoo or your local aquarium or wildlife park, pick out some animal-themed postcards and help your child write special messages to friends and family.
Look it up!: Flip through the pages of a children’s dictionary with preschoolers to find and read animal-related words.
About Super WHY
Super WHY is a educational and entertaining (edutaining?) programs that helps pre- and early readers develop skills that enhance literacy and foster a love of reading through techniques recommended by the National Reading Panel. Early literacy skills are vital to helping a child succeed as early as in Kindergarten, and children often learn better when they can relate to those trying to teach them. Super WHY not only teaches literacy, but social skills as well, since each episode features on character from a story having an issue with another character.
