Everyday childhood lessons, GROUNDO-style! Previously known as Nature Nurture GROUNDO Stories. March 2020-April 2021. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thegroundoclub/support

Episode Date
Message from teacher Linda
164

After one year and 195 episodes, I will no longer be 'adding more episodes and games' to the GROUNDO Club Podcast. It has been an honor for me to share these stories and games with children and families, especially during the past year of challenging times with COVID. From the bottom of my heart, my hope is that the podcast has brought hours of fun, engagement and learning, as well as a type of 'muscle-memory' into what 'good character' looks like and doesn't look like when they think of (or hear) the name GROUNDO and/or the words 'good character'.

***The podcast will continue and is available to all who would like to listen to episodes they haven't heard, re-listen to episodes they've enjoyed in the past and even play games on the podcast or with friends and family.***

Curious Clues. Episode #2
666

In episode #2 of CURIOUS CLUES …  the game of clues for curious kids, children are invited and challenged to think and concentrate as they listen to five clues and one bonus clue about things in nature.

A ten or so minute interactive game for children to learn and practice their listening skills, patience, ability to focus, decipher, and, of course, have FUN! The goal of the CURIOUS Clues is to provide unusual and unexpected clues that help children expand their understanding of things in our natural world. Each round of CURIOUS Clues ends with a BONUS/GIVE AWAY Clue. This easier clue will reinforce your child's confidence in themself while being exposed to the more unusual and unexpected clues.

The CURIOUS Clues game is also a great way for your child to share things they learn with siblings and friends, making concrete and FUN connections along the way.

Please feel free send an email to groundo.club@gmail.com if you have any feedback regarding the game, its format or anything else. We welcome it all :-)

Then they tell one another what they were thinking and find out if they were thinking the same or different things.

In this GROUNDO episode, GROUNDO sees children playing with a big, red, shiny ball. He really likes the ball, and he WANTS it! So when it comes bouncing over toward him, he scoops it up and hides behind a fence with it. The children keep looking for their ball. In the meantime, GROUNDO's five friends, Stinky, Pinky, Winky, Blinky, and of course Chicken come to his rescue. When they ask him where he got the big, red, shiny ball, GROUNDO lies and tells them his mom bought it for him at Target. Oh, no! That is not good character! GROUNDO really wants to keep the ball, but his friends help him learn about having good character, and when the children see GROUNDO with their ball, GROUNDO has a choice: to tell the truth or not. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/thegroundoclub/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thegroundoclub/support

GROUNDO Gets Ready for the Beach
380

March 20, 2020 FOR PARENTS: This 'GROUNDO' story has been told (and requested by the children) many times over the years. As you listen, pay attention to the sounds made for things like, walking down the hallway, opening the door, going into the bedroom and opening the drawer. Children love to repeat the sounds, and it's a great way for them to be involved in the story as opposed to simply listening. From my experience and observation when telling 'Groundo' and other Nature Nurture stories, children are so happy and become riveted when they are a part of the story, laughing, rolling over and always asking for more!  SMILES and LAUGHTER ALL AROUND :-) You will note this 'GROUNDO' story did not have any of his friends. There are two types of 'GROUNDO' stories. The first type is with his friends, Stinky, Pinky, Winky, Blinky (and as we say) 'of course', Chicken! The second type (like this one) is simply 'GROUNDO' being silly and making silly observations, decisions and requests.
