Charlie and Miss Ellie join a chef in a commercial kitchen, where they get a lesson in counting 1-10 from Autumn Red Squirrel. As they search for clues to solve the “puzzle it out” question of the day, Levi Cottonwood shows how to measure and build yummy snacks, Lily Longlegs keeps us fit as we review counting skills, and Miss Ellie helps us practice writing numbers. Along the way, learn some fun food facts. “Can you believe popcorn has existed for more than 5,000 years?” asks Miss Ellie. Or count the jugs of milk and hear a cow moo! With all the puzzle pieces in place, wind down by singing a “Counting in the Kitchen” song with Brian Vander Ark and Miss Ellie.
Learning can happen anywhere! In this episode of Charlie & Company, the “school zone” is a place where heroes live. Did you guess…a fire station? Yes, Charlie and Miss Ellie, your “Anywhere Teacher,” visit a real-life fire station, where they will solve a “puzzle it out” question of the day. To figure out the puzzle Charlie calls on his friends for help. Violet Ringtail, his favorite raccoon, teaches colors; Levi Cottonwood, Charlie’s beaver buddy, puts his math skills to work teaching about shapes; and Charlie’s tiny but adventurous mouse friend, Nestor Fields, builds vocabulary skills with directional words. Along the way they get help from real firefighters displaying important safety gear and their bright red fire trucks. Watch a “super, splendid, spectacular” fire ladder demonstration go up and down, and sing a fire station song, along with Brian Vander Ark and Miss Ellie.
Learning can happen anywhere! In this episode of Charlie & Company, the “school zone” is a place where Miss Ellie says, “Classical music makes me want to sway and spin.” Today, Charlie and Miss Ellie visit an auditorium and meet a high school orchestra, as they search for clues to answer the “puzzle it out” question of the day. Nestor Fields does a lesson on bigger and smaller, using musical instruments; Socrates The Owl helps us learn how to categorize, using families of instruments found in an orchestra; and Violet Ringtail, Charlie’s favorite raccoon, gets us to use our brains to hear and see patterns. We meet the string, woodwind, brass, and percussion families. But hmmm…where does the harmonica fit in? Once the puzzle pieces are all in place, sing along with Brian Vander Ark and Miss Ellie: “Listen to the symphony. The music rises. The instruments come in all shapes and sizes.”
