Look and read with wordy and some other randoms was the best program on TV when I was a kid and was on for years before that!
I am now using what I learnt from it to teach my daughter and she is now almost in the top reading group.
Magical things like Magic E, build a word with an ING, that OO sound...brill!
Gordy racer and through the dragons eye are the ones I saw as a kid but later on I watched badger girl and that was fab! If you or your children get to see any of the look and read series you and they will not be disapointed...they are a little outdated clothes wise but for learning purposes...the oldies are the goodies!
