Are you the parent of a preschooler? If you are and if you have satellite or cable television, there is a good chance that you and your child have not only heard of Noggin before, but you may have also watched it. Noggin is a commercial free television network that airs preschool programming, seven days a week, between the hours of six in the morning and six at night. The television shows airing on Noggin are all educational, in one way or another. Depending on the show that you watch, your child can learn to speak basic Spanish, learn their ABCs, or learn how to develop their social skills. If your preschooler enjoys learning alongside their favorite television characters, you are urged to examine www.noggin.com.
As a parent, you may find Noggin.com to be one of your favorite websites. In fact, it might also become your child’s favorite website. For starters, it is common for parents to be concerned with the programs that their children are viewing. If you would like more information on Noggin, as well as each of the television shows that it airs, you can visit the “For Parents,” section. There you will not only learn how to get Noggin, if you don’t already have access to it, but you will also learn how each show instills valuable information into your child.
As for your child, one of the reasons why they may love visiting Noggin.com is because it is fun. In fact, fun can be considered an understatement. When it comes to playing games on Noggin.com, you have a number of different options. There is a tab that is labeled “Games and More.” This tab will take you to a list of online games that your child can play. If your child wants to play a game with a specific cartoon character, such as Franklin, you can click on the Franklin picture, which is displayed at the top of each webpage. Using this method makes it easier to find the games that your child will enjoy the most.
Above, Franklin was used as an example. Franklin is a popular television show that follows the journeys of Franklin, the turtle, and his friends. As for Franklin, your child can make Franklin dance to catchy dance tunes or they can color in a picture, which can be used in a story-telling skit. Another popular Noggin television show is Pinky Dinky Doo. The games available for Pinky Dinky Doo include the “Great Big Fancy Word Game,” or “Eat It or Wear It.” Your child can watch online skits to determine which word Pinky is trying to use to describe the situation or they can distinguish between items that you eat or items that you wear. A wide variety of other Noggin shows have free online games, including Dora the Explorer, the Upside Down Show, and Maisy, just to name a few.
From what I can see and from my own personal experience, all of the games displayed on Noggin.com are free. In addition to the large collection of interactive games, you will also find a wide array of free printable coloring pages. This, alone, is enough to visit Noggin.com, as many of the character coloring books are hard to find and costly.
