Between the Lions is our new favorite weekly educational show. We now work it into our daily routine. I tape the episodes on our DVR and we watch them in the morning before breakfast, which gives me a chance to get myself and Cutie Pie dressed for the day.
Their website has a wealth of information to help you extend this show into your curriculum.
You can download the Episode and Curriculum Content Guide, Teacher’s Domain with downloadable video segments, Printables, Activities, audio for mp3 and download View/Read/Do Activity pack.
You can also download information on starting a Between the Lions Read Aloud Book Club.
I did also enjoy reading, The Between the Lions Book for Parents, for tips on teaching your child how to learn to read.
Between the Lions is probably what Sesame Street was “back in the day”. When I have reading time with the boys, I can see some of the concepts they watched on TV at work. I really cannot say enough good things about Leapfrog Learning Videos and Between the Lions. What a great resource for parents!
