My Favorite Things 1-7-15

Wednesday, January 7, 2015
Well, I cannot believe that this is here. But, I am linking up with Teaching Trio for their Favorite Things linky party.
I love this idea because it gives a sense of what is to be expected when it comes to what my favorite things are. I remember watching TV shows for children when I was a little girl and it got me thinking what my first set of Favorite Things is going to be...

Here are my favorite TV shows for classrooms...
1. The Magic School Bus
~This is one of my favorite TV shows to this day. I love how the show is more focused on science and when I was a teacher's aide, I would see the children watch the show and they enjoyed it.

2. Barney
~ Ok, before anyone laughs at me, I remember when I was a little girl, I would watch Barney and Friends and I would know more about each subject that we are learning in class. It still surprises me that most kids are learning from Barney today even after the show is over.
3. Mister Rogers' Neighborhood
~ I love this show because it gives me a sense of what I love when I start watching this at 3 years old. The children at my school would watch this and they would be more fascinating for them to see how the children are at the same age watching this. They also learn stuff from this too. 

Honorablee Mentions: Sesame Street, Clifford The Big Red Dog: The reason is that it was a difficult decision to make because they are all my favorites.

Question: What are your favorite TV shows growing up that can be used for classrooms?

Link up with Teaching Trio and see all the other Favorite Things.


  1. My son loves the Magic School Bus and Wild Kratts! And I love the fact that he is learning so much while he is watching! I always remember watching Reading Rainbow when I was a kid. That and Wishbone were probably my favorites!

    1. I so forgot Wild Kratts. That was my favorite TV show along with those and Wishbone. Thanks for Replying


  2. I loved when my kids were into Magic School Bus, Barney (saw his in concert several times with the Wiggles :) ) and Liberty Kids. I learned a ton from Liberty Kids!


    1. Liberty Kids is one of my favorite shows even though I am grown up now. I still get hooked on some kids shows today.


  3. My favorite cartoon TV show growing up was Muppet Babies but that isn't something for the classroom. I currently like Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood from the Fred Rogers Company. It helps kids learn how to handle different situations with little jingles to trigger their memory. :-) - Lisa

    1. I remember Muppet Babies and it makes me sad that it is not something for the classroom unless it is for free time. I love The Fred Rogers Company shows such as Daniel Tiger because it is a bit catchy and the kids would learn something and have that feel that you and I learn from Mister Rogers.


  4. I use Magic School Bus movies in my classroom! My kiddos (4th graders) love them! Half of the time, I don't think they realize that they are actually learning while they are watching the video.
