In the series Bob the Builder children 'Watch Along & Build Along' as Bob and the team build a whole new town from the ground up.
"Can we build it? Yes we can!"
That's the rallying call that Bob the Builder uses to fire up his teams' "can-do" spirit and kick-off the job in each episode. From building sheds to resurfacing roads, Bob, Wendy and their can-do crew-Scoop the digger, Muck the digger/dump truck, Lofty the mobile crane, Scrambler, the off road vehicle, Roley the steamroller, Dizzy the cement mixer-help keep Bobsville in working order. No matter the obstacle, the team always gets the job done-from start to completion-and takes pride in their work and the great results they accomplish together!
When they're not working, Bob the Builder and his team are back in his building yard, pursuing their interests-like rock-n-roll, ball playing and pranks-or playing with Pilchard the cat.
Every episode finishes with a job well done and a lesson learned about the value of a positive attitude, problem solving and teamwork while always demonstrating that the fun is getting the job done.
The Ready To Learn Read-View-Do Learning Triangle model is followed.

Do: 3-4 Year Olds
Am I Special? Yes I Am! Each child can make a book identifying ways in which he or she is special. For example: One page draw a picture of the child, another a favorite toy, another a drawing of child's family, something the child is good at doing or has fun doing, etc. If you have a group of children, the children can share their books and discuss what makes them special.
5-7 Year Olds
1. Create a bowling game with recycle plastic soda bottles all the same size. Discuss: "Roley's Rock n' Roll!"
2. Create a wall mural using markers, crayon or paints on one large piece of paper. Each child is a member of the team contributing to the project. Hang Wendy's Magnificent Mural in a place for all to see.
This 2-hour character education workshop is available for parents, teachers, and child care providers.
