Every morning, "The Sunny Side Up Show" greets preschoolers and their families as they rise and shine and prepare for the day ahead. In this live broadcast, hosts Kelly, Sean, Dennisha and Liz alternate weeks and join Chica the Chicken to create a warm and welcoming environment where families can gather to share their local weather, birthdays, and even show and tell with Sprout. Favorite Sprout characters like Elmo and Barney stop by the Sunshine Barn from time to time, as well as other special guests, such as a chef, librarian or firefighter.
"The Sunny Side Up Show" balances playful, spontaneous fun with interactive learning and creates a welcoming environment for preschoolers and their parents to spend some morning time together. In addition to introducing children to educational concepts through weekly themes, the concepts of calendars, day of the week and weather are reinforced on a daily basis. Through birthday card submissions and other interactive activities, creativity and craft skills are exercised.
