The Educational Benefits of the Series
The Teletubbies are so important because it is not only an entertaining show but the series has so many educational benefits! Your child’s educational needs are important to the series.
The Teletubbies are passionate about humor and the creation of conversation between your child and the programme. The pace of the show allows your child to formulate their answer and make a verbal response. There is repetition to not only help children use words but understand when and how they’re used. The words that the Teletubbies use are easy for children to fit into their own vocabulary.
Each Teletubby has a favorite thing, such as Po and her precious scooter. Engage your child to name all of the Teletubbies’s favorite things! This is encouraging your child’s memory.
The Teletubby world is colourful! Take five toys the same colour as the Teletubbies in a basket and ask your child to find other things of the same colour.
Your child will learn colours, learn to observe the world around them and lastly, identify similar items.
Teletubbies help children with their physical development. They can show good control and co-ordination in large and small movements throughout the programme. The Teletubbies demonstrate how to handle equipment and tools effectively. Small children watching the Teletubbies will like to engage in physical action as well.
Socially and emotionally, the Teletubbies helps children understand their feelings and also the feelings of the children around them. They will understand to follow the rules and you will notice your child will develop a sense of humor and find out what makes them laugh! We love how the Teletubbies share big hugs!
