Martha Speaks
 
Does anyone else watch this on PBS? Evelyn has been watching for over a year and everyone in our family loves the show. I had her take the DORA online reading assessment and she scored at 5th grade 5th month in vocabulary (she is 5 and would be starting K this fall). Other than reading a lot we don't have a specific vocabulary program and I do think she has learned a lot from the show in a very fun way.

Here's a recent article about the show : PBS KIDSŪ Series Martha Speaks Shows Impressive Impact in Helping Children Learn New... -- BOSTON, May 31, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --

I think I like the show better than Jet does. He's just 3 so he's into Curious George and Word World right now, but he'll watch Martha Speaks with me. I think it's pretty humorous and I know as he gets older he'll absorb more of the vocab from it. Love PBS.

I haven't seen that one. I've seen Word Girl (a long time ago). It was pretty cute. I'll have to look into Martha Speaks.
