TVOkids Original Wacky Number Songs from Apartment 11 Productions spotlights learning with math musicals
Season two of Wacky Songs series premieres next week, series purchased by ABC Australia and season three getting underway
Montreal, Quebec (July 28, 2021) – After a fun-filled first season expanding the vocabularies of Grade 1-4 students with Wacky Word Songs, the series is back with a whole new round of episodes focusing on math.
Season two, TVOkids Original Wacky Number Songs, premieres on TVOkids.com and the TVOkids YouTube and Roku channels on Aug. 2 and on TVOkids, Aug. 9.
“We all loved how season one made learning fun and harnessed kid-centric silliness for building real-world skills,” says Marney Malabar, Director of Kids TV, TVO. “Season two brings that same magic to learning numbers with a catchy tune.”
Season two features Big Top Academy’s Ava Ro performing zany numbers about numbers that explore math concepts like fractions, probability, quadrilaterals and symmetry. Putting the focus on fun will inspire young viewers to see math throughout their daily lives, from the kitchen to the soccer field.
“With song titles like ‘Tally Up!,’ ‘Gone, Gone Polygon’ and ‘Attention to Dimension,’ children won’t be able to resist singing along with Ava and exploring the fascinating world of math,” says Mindy Laxer, co-executive producer, Apartment 11.
Produced by Apartment 11 Productions, in association with TVOkids, the popular series has also been purchased by ABC Australia and renewed for a third season.
While audiences deepen their grasp of math concepts, Apartment 11 is prepping production for season three of this TVOkids Original: Wacky Media Songs. This upcoming season will connect children with media literacy skills, featuring songs that explore advertising, the internet and social media. Topics will include clickbait, bias and fake news.
TVOkids Original Wacky Number Songs is also made with the financial participation of the Canada Media Fund, Shaw Rocket Fund, the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit and the Quebec Film and Television Tax Credit.
