There you are. Something very odd has happened…
One of my daughter’s favorite shows on PBS KIDS 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.” By using the power of math these Odd Squad agents help make things right again.
The Odd Squad agency has a few cases (episodes) that we noticed pertaining to financial education. Those cases are:
- “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
These cases are truly enjoyable and serve as great introductions to helping your child(ren) learn to identify and add different coin values.
In addition to the episodes listed above there are other episodes featuring characters like Polly Graph-who had her own lemonade (and at one point hot chocolate) stand, Delivery Debbie, Delivery Dan, etc. that briefly discussed concepts related to business. So don’t hesitate to watch these and other episodes on TV, at pbskids.org, or through the PBS KIDS video app.
Well, what are you waiting for? GO!
