1560

Are your small kids (or adult kids!) driving you crazy, especially for parents living in locked-down areas where the kids are staying at home?

Cool Australia has partnered with Ludo Studio to create a range of Bluey educational resources for teachers and educators. Hooray!

We’re bringing Early Learning and Primary educators, a range of FREE fun-filled resources we know kids will eat up, just like a stick of magic asparagus.

Each resource showcases an episode from Bluey and contains all the instructional information, curriculum mapping and teaching strategies needed to bring Bluey to life at home or in the classroom.

    side note - one of the best TV shows on right now (not just for kids, in general)

      Actually don't mind when my son wants to watch this. Much easier to sit through than some of the garbage available nowadays

        This is what happens when you are not happy with what you have! Someone's husband eventually gets it!

        Is that when they go to the Vietnamese restaurant?

        My kids asked for dance mode as a reward. After that I saw the episode…. Wish I knew!

    Our family love watching Bluey. It’s better than the bratty Peppa Pig show in my opinion.

    Apparently the Americans love Bluey too and their kids are starting to have an Aussie accent https://www.abc.net.au/radio/melbourne/programs/breakfast/au...

    A side note, I only just discovered that Bluey is a girl :) https://www.mumstrife.com/lifestyle/technology/bluey-is-a-gi...

      Anything to stay away from the abomination that is Peppa Pig.

      Kiri and Lou is also very good, not as fun as bluey of course. It's a little quirky due to NZ humour but I'm hearing my kids sing about how their body belongs to them and that's a darn good message to get through.. it's got a few good messages that are getting through.. whereas Bluey I think requires a parent's 30 second intervention at the end of each episode to get the message through properly.

    •  

      Yup, shocked me when I found out that Bluey was a girl.. think 'The Crying Game' shock.

      I was smart enough to figure out Bingo was a girl…

        I was even more shocked when i found out that the opening sequence is them playing a game of musical statues and one by one they are all out.

        •  

          Haha, I had to watch the intro to see what you're on about.

          I told my kids and they said they knew.. lol

        •  

          I've heard a suggestion that their names that come up in the intro are from farts, but I think that's reading into it

    •  

      It’s a nice story, about the accents, but apparently quite unlikely

        That article is full of sh1t. My kids had quite a distinctive British accent from Peppa pig. Sure they didn't sound like a full on pom but it was definitely there.

        •  

          I guess if they watch Peppa Pig / speak with British people more than they talk to Australians, it’s going to happen

        •  

          I've known lots of parents blaming Peppa Pig for their kids having British accents over the past 5 to 10 years. It's not a new thing at all

        Even my wife goes a little British after back to back episodes of a British drama. She did live there for 2 years though.

        I think the linguistics are taking a technical term too literally, no one is suggesting they have 100% lost their native accent in all circumstances.
        Intonation and phrases with non native sounds are very common changes in my experience of living in a few countries.
        Its totally a thing.

      •  

        Totally a thing. I know a 4.5yo kid who sounds English (his parents say it's Welsh, from fireman sam, iirc)

        •  

          fireman sam

          I always hear Fireman Sam as Cornish… but could be Welsh

      •  

        100% a thing. My almost 6 year old has an American accent from watching YouTube kids. Most noticeable words in words that end in R.

    Thanks OP

    Is there any chance someone knows how to download all the sheets in one go? I can't see an easy way to get them all as a package. It would be great if I didn't have to click through on each activity.

    • +4 votes

      make it a game.. do ctrl click to open in new tab- all of them quickly.
      then ctrl + pgdn to the next tab, press pgdn to see download button, move your mouse there and click. now dont move mouse at all.

      repeat:
      ctrl + pgdn
      pgdn
      click.

      should be done in few seconds.

        You're my kinda guy. I, too, also production line stuff like this.

        Any then zip them up and upload them to cloud and post a link here for all of us time poor ozbargainers :)

        •  

          lol. that would be borderline piracy.. not our stuff to share.

      •  

        Thanks. Worked like a charm.

    •  

      can you direct me to the page of downloading sheets? I can't even see that . thanks

      •

        Using a desktop browser (i'm sure it works the same from a mobile device), click on a category from the top menu, such as Educators, Students, Parents, then click on Search Activities. Like this page: https://www.coolaustralia.org/curriculum-materials/?types_k=...

        From here, you'll see the big list of available resources. Click on one of them. This will take you to another page showing the worksheets etc. There's a blue sign covering the worksheet which literally says Sign Up or login to view worksheets. It's free to sign up so just use a throwaway email if you need to.

        Once you've logged into your new account, you'll get access to download the worksheets etc.

        Keep in mind that downloading the worksheets alone is not always enough to complete the activity. They will contain links to watch short videos on Vimeo, YouTube, ABC iView etc

    I love Bluey, despite the fact it was responsible for me having to make my child the famous duck cake for his birthday.

  •  

    So glad my fellow OzBargainers also enjoy Bluey. It's rare for me to like kids shows… I've teared up/ugly cried on a few evocative episodes and probably LMAO every one. Even made my partner (keep his promise to) watch my 2 favourite episodes when all the kids slept over at their Grandparents'. He also likes it :,D
    Thank you for uploading this OP!
