Haven’t we all wanted a talking dog at one point or another? Wait. Don’t answer that. Would they still be man’s best friend if they could tell all our secrets?!
Either way! Martha Speaks is kicking off a fun week of new episodes and games highlighting awesome vocabulary, starting this Monday, June 16th on PBS KIDS. Martha Speaks is perfect show to hold your kids’ attention and let you have a guilt free break because it works to enhance their vocabulary by using a chatty dog, Martha. Win, win! Help your kid become the smartest talker on the playground and tune in to one of the new episodes, like Thou Callest Me a Dog—it’s all about Shakespeare! Frankly, PBS KIDS, I could have used that episode junior year in college when I was trudging through The Complete Works of Shakespeare! 876 episodes of 90210 got me nothing but Peach Pit envy.
Some of the words covered in the Shakespeare episode are soliloquy, dialogue, and producer. Watch out world—we’re over seeing Spot run! Other episodes will introduce integrity, digress, tangent, convey, punctuation…..my heart is skipping a beat and I’m geeking out. I’m not going to lie. Why did I not think of this show? Probably because I was dreaming of dating Dylan instead of reading more Shakespeare. But I digress……(sorry, I can’t help it. Really. I know. I’ll stop now.)
Be sure to visit PBS KIDS on the Martha Speaks page to play the new Martha Steaks game! Kids learn new vocabulary as they help Martha’s friends tumble through a dream land for Martha—of steaks and falling hamburgers!
Now I’m hungry! If only it could rain Michelob Ultra in here. Ahhh….
So put your feet up mama, get your kid schooled in some awesome vocab words, and when they sound wicked smaht on the playground, it will be our secret! Cheers!
*I received a Martha Speaks Kit containing books, DVDs, and items from sponsors in order to facilitate this review. As always, all opinions art thou my own. OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT! I probably messed that up. It’s all Brandon Walsh’s fault.*
