They Might Be Giants Friday Night Family Podcast
So yesterday, I posted about the new TMBG CD/DVD Here Comes Science. While reading about it on Wired GeekDad's blog, I saw a mention of a podcast. The They Might Be Giants Friday Night Family Podcast (link opens into iTunes) was started about 2 years ago, and sadly seems to have stopped last year. That being said you can still download all the episodes and listen to them. It is a video podcast and has videos from their CD/DVD's Here come the ABC's and Here Come the 123's.
The podcast is hosted by puppet versions of John & John (the lead singers) and the first episode is about giving High Five. This really seemed like a great song, and a wonderful lesson for kids. It could be used as part of a social story for kids who have trouble with know "when" to high five and such. While I haven't seen all the podcasts yet, there are ones about even & odd numbers, outer space, letters. It looks like a lot of fun and I can't wait to share it with my class!
