Word World- It's a like/hate relationship

Hi! It's Jilly. Have you ever seen the show "Word World"? It's a kid's show on PBS.


My kids love to watch it. I really like that they teach spelling and help kids see how the letters work together to form words.

BUT...

The characters drive. me. CRAZY!! They are SO annoying! Especially the duck. I want to shoot him and smother him in an orange sauce. 



Every time he speaks I just cringe. Do the people who write these shows think about the parents who have to listen to this stuff AT ALL?! Ugh!  

Although, there is one thing about the show that is pretty awesome. Whenever the characters want something, they just spell the word and the thing appears! How cool would that be in real life?!?! 

"It's time to build a word. Let's build it. Let's build it now."

C.o.a.c.h. P.u.r.s.e.  

H.o.n.d.a. P.i.l.o.t

Heck, I'd even settle for c.l.e.a.n. k.i.t.c.h.e.n, or  m.i.s.s.i.n.g. s.h.o.e. 

What word would YOU build? ;)

  6. Maybe I live under a rock, but I've missed this show...never seen it or heard of it. But judging from the comments I should consider myself lucky!

    1. Ha ha! It's not a terrible show, really. Like I said, I like that it teaches kids how to spell, but the characters just get on your nerves sometimes. It comes on PBS. We used to watch it on Netflix, but they don't have it anymore. You can get the DVDs at the library, though.

  10. Hi! It's Christine :). My son loves Word World... the tunes are catchy, but I totally agree... duck sauce... I was actually just thinking about this the other day. Wouldn't it be so cool to get whatever we want just by spelling it? Word World... SuperWhy!... they all solve mysteries just by spelling. With a 3-year-old and an 8-month-old, I would definitely spell M.O.R.E.S.L.E.E.P. :)

    Thanks for hosting the Weekend Blog Walk! I'm following you via Feedburner now.
