With Brooklin bring in preschool I want her to be learning as much as she can. This fall, PBS KIDS will premiere PEG + CAT, a new animated preschool series that follows the adorable, spirited Peg and her sidekick Cat as they embark on adventures and learn foundational math concepts and skills.
We are so excited about Peg + Cat and as a parent I really can respect that his new series displays the value of resilience and perseverance in problem-solving while teaching math skills. I think as a parent who wants to make sure that the media my children are exposed to offers the highest form of educational value. That they’re learning in a fun way and that’s why we’ve always turned to PBS.
Every half-hour episode of PEG + CAT will feature two stories, each an eleven-minute adventure in which Peg and Cat find themselves thrust into an unexpected math word problem. But it’s not just an abstract academic exercise for them — it’s a messy and funny quandary they have to solve.
The show focuses not only on helping kids build math skills, such as how to add or subtract, but on how to think about larger math concepts as well — concepts that form the foundation for learning math at any level, from kindergarten to calculus. In each episode, Peg and Cat use foundational concepts like relative size, geometry and algebraic thinking to solve the problem and save the day.
Check out this adorable preview!
Tune in to PBS Kids and the premiere on October 7, 2013!!
