Summer Reading Saturday-- Everything I Need to Know in Life I Learned from School House Rock
I may have mentioned this before, but my kids LOVE School House Rock. And I mean, really love it.
Even Mister will just sit and watch a while.
Boo can sing most of "Mr. Morton".
And I often have one of the songs stuck in my head.
Amazingly, even being the uber-nerd I was, I didn't like School House Rock. I always changed the channel. So watching it with my kids was a learning experience for me too.
Now, when most kids are learning grammar, they start easy-- nouns and verbs.
Thanks to SHR, we started with adjectives and adverbs. Do you realize how hard those concepts are to explain to a preschooler who has no idea what nouns and verbs are?
* We're almost done with our Summer Reading!! Mister has 9 more and Boo has 6!!
