There you are. Something very odd has happened…

In a world filled with loud vibrantly colorful flashes of animation it’s pretty cool to find an educational children’s show that’s not afraid to use real people. And in our humble opinions Sinking Ship Ent. definitely struck gold with its hit show Odd Squad.

What is Odd Squad?

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the show:

“Odd Squad is an organization run by kids that investigates anything strange, weird, and especially odd.”

A traditional episode begins with Odd Squad agents being assigned a case and proceeding to use various problem solving strategies and the power of math to make things right again. Aside from being quite entertaining and surprisingly encouraging; what we love about this show is how every problem solving step is broken down in digestible easy-to-understand chunks-perfect for any child (or adult) to comprehend.

Fun fact: one of our staff members actually used the advice about estimating (Episode: Whatever happened to Agent Oz) to win a candy corn competition!

Odd Squad Money Episode List

From dodging pie-nadoes to interrogating unicorns the Odd Squad agency deals with a wide caseload. However below is a list we compiled with cases pertaining to financial education.

  • Game Time
  • Show Me the Money
  • Otis’s Day
  • Odd Squad Training Video #457: Anything Within Measure Machine
  • “Dr. O: Party Time, Excellent”
  • “Odd Squad Training Video #1256: How to Afford Office Supplies
  • “Xs and Os”
  • Where there’s a Wolf, There’s a Way”

The cases listed above serve as great introductions to financial concepts like: identifying money and its values, budgeting, and even negotiating for your children.

Other Noticeable Characters

In addition to the episodes above Odd Squad does a nice job of spotlighting characters like:

  • Polly Graph who runs her own lemonade/hot chocolate stand.
  • Delivery Debbie who operates her pizza shop.
  • Delivery Dan the self-proclaimed “purveyor of egg salad sandwiches”.

All of those characters (and others) can also serve as a catalyst when discussing business concepts with your kids. (For example the recent #savelemonadestands movement)

Well, what are you waiting for? GO!…watch the show.
