CLIFFORD'S BIG IDEAS/IDEAS TO GROW ON

Clifford's Big Ideas are positive character traits modeled by the characters in the Clifford the Big Red Dog® TV series. These same ideas are the backbone of the new Clifford's Puppy Days™ TV show, though they are referred to as Clifford's Ideas to Grow On in this series. These ten ideas represent social and emotional challenges that children face and must master in the course of development. Each episode of the TV series supports one or more of these Ideas through classic storytelling. Each episode concludes with a one-minute vignette featuring Clifford and his friends modeling (or learning to model!) one of these ten Big Ideas/Ideas to Grow On. Here at Clifford's home on the Web, we reinforce these themes in all of our activities. This section of the site will help you bring Clifford's Big Ideas/Ideas to Grow On from the TV screen and into a child's life.

In this area, you will find:

  • a description of what the idea means to a young child
  • an explanation of the developmental theory behind episodes and activities that support the big idea/idea to grow on
  • links to episodes and activities that reinforce the big idea/idea to grow on

BE A GOOD FRIEND

Children really make the best little friends! Healthy friendships early in life lay the foundation for rewarding relationships and social growth as a child matures. Young children soon discover that friends can be both fun and challenging. While learning to interact with other children, a child will experience many disputes and trials. Through personal relationships, children develop empathy, understanding, compromise, and the other skills that friendship requires.

DEVELOPMENTAL THEORY: The entire series continually shows the friends on Birdwell Island dealing with one another in ways that strengthen their friendships, especially when those friendships are tested in everyday life. The characters appear in situations that give a child the opportunity to evaluate different ways to communicate and resolve problems among friends. In the activities, children build language skills and self-expression by talking about the importance of showing consideration of and respect for friends.

BE KIND

Kindness is one of the most wonderful qualities that a person young or old can possess. Being kind requires empathy, the ability to imagine how another person feels. It also requires a willingness to do something that will make another person's life a little better. Acts of kindness are not easily forgotten, and children's first powerful lessons in kindness often come when they are treated with kindness themselves.

DEVELOPMENTAL THEORY: A great example of kindness is Emily Elizabeth's taking Clifford home and loving him, even when he continues to grow, and grow, and grow! Acts of kindness and acceptance are precious gifts to give one another, and these gifts are given all around Birdwell Island!

BE RESPONSIBLE

Learning to be responsible affects children's personal safety and influences the opinions that other people have of them. Becoming a responsible person comes from observation and practice. It is a child's natural instinct to please, and every child wants to be recognized for good works. When a child is given the opportunity to be a caretaker, recognition for good efforts gives the child pride and reinforces good habits for future efforts.

DEVELOPMENTAL THEORY: These episodes illustrate how the characters learn about being responsible from daily experiences. Children can connect these character situations with their own experiences. Encouraging a child to retell the events of the story, make predictions, and interpret character feelings allows you to informally assess the child's comprehension and conceptual understanding.

BE TRUTHFUL

The process of learning to be honest and truthful begins early in a child's life. Some of the best learning opportunities for a child arise from simple situations in the home. Communicating with a child about choices, consequences, and honesty on a regular basis gives the child positive reinforcement about the value of being truthful. By encouraging discussions about honesty and truthfulness, you can help the child become more aware that this characteristic is an important part of his or her individual personality.

DEVELOPMENTAL THEORY: These episodes and activities illustrate the fact that every action, honest or not, has a consequence. The concept of having a good conscience is emphasized when the characters wrestle with making right decisions. Children can learn the value of being honest and truthful by relating their own experiences to those of the characters.

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF

Children are so impressionable at a young age. When they have successes, they are naturally motivated to attempt new challenges. Opportunities to grow in self-confidence are important for the young child just learning about his/her own potential. Most children need encouragement to try again after making mistakes or having unsuccessful experiences. Welcoming life's new experiences with enthusiasm comes from confidence learned early in life. Offer encouragement and watch them go!

DEVELOPMENTAL THEORY: These episodes are intended to inspire! The characters on Birdwell Island experience situations that develop the concept of believing in oneself. Children see that the characters are not different from anyone else when it comes to dealing with self-confidence. Stories support the idea that it is good to try new things.

HAVE RESPECT

Learning to respect and accept others is the basis of social maturity. Becoming aware of similarities and differences among people is just the beginning of a child's experience in social growth. It is not always easy to accept people at first glance. Children sometimes have fears and apprehension about people they are not sure about. Teaching them the importance of looking beyond appearances is one way of helping them understand themselves and others. Opportunities to understand that diversity makes people unique and individually interesting can help a child to appreciate others early in life. Having respect for individual differences, personal space, and the ideas and feelings of others will help a child appreciate what others have to offer, make friends, and cooperate in groups.

DEVELOPMENTAL THEORY: These episodes show our favorite characters in situations where differences are really strengths. The activities reinforce one of life's most valuable lessons for a child: learning that respect means giving another person credit for being genuine and unique. Having respect also means not teasing or being boastful, even when you are better at something, but being humble instead.

HELP OTHERS

Children love to be big helpers! One way that they can help is sharing their knowledge and skills with others who need their assistance. For many children, helping is its own reward, because it brings a boost in self-esteem. Others require the positive reinforcement of praise and gratitude. However, some children find it difficult to accept help because they don't feel secure or self-confident enough to admit that they need it. Encouraging communication about differences in development and ability can help all children feel secure and confident enough to offer or accept help.

DEVELOPMENTAL THEORY: These episodes illustrate that it is quite normal for people to be unsure or afraid in situations that they can't handle on their own. Identifying with characters' feelings will help the child learn more about the personal feelings that arise in such situations. A child can use examples in the stories to learn how characters turn their situations into positive experiences. Activities support the idea that it is good to try new things and help others feel good about themselves in new or uncertain situations.

PLAY FAIR

The foundation of playing fair is treating others as you would want them to treat you. Learning to treat people fairly and equitably begins with play-fair play. Taking turns, following rules, avoiding favoritism, sharing roles or game pieces equally, and other learning experiences within group activities and games all promote good social and emotional growth. Reinforcing acceptable behavior in situations where a child has to play fair to get along with someone else is great experience for the social challenges that all children face as they grow.

DEVELOPMENTAL THEORY: These episodes reinforce the idea that treating people with fairness makes an experience rewarding for everyone involved. Children see that teamwork means that everyone works together and everyone benefits in the end. The idea of playing fair reinforces honesty, respect, and sharing.

SHARE

Sharing is one of the most rewarding acts of kindness. Sometimes it can be very hard for children to let someone else share things that they really like. The best thing about sharing is that it brings friends together. When we share with a friend, an experience becomes twice as much fun! Just think of a time when someone shared something with you, recall your feelings, and you'll recognize that sharing rewards both the person who gives and the person who receives.

DEVELOPMENTAL THEORY: These episodes emphasize the importance of sharing and learning positive social skills that are needed for successful relationships within a group. Children learn to reason, make good decisions, and understand sharing by observation and role-playing. Positive role models for young children can lead to the development of healthy relationships throughout life.

WORK TOGETHER

Opportunities for a child to share a common goal with other children provide important lessons for growing up. Children learn to interact with others most often through observing how others treat them within their own environments. By cooperating with other children to achieve a goal, a child learns to enjoy people for their individual strengths and their contributions to a team effort. Being with others and establishing positive relationships within a group can enrich a child's experiences and give that child confidence.

DEVELOPMENTAL THEORY: These episodes support the concepts of teamwork and cooperation. The characters model working together in a group successfully to meet a cooperative goal or accomplish a personal task in fun and meaningful ways. The activities involve children in team efforts that teach valuable lessons about getting along with others.

SUBJECT AREA SKILLS

In collaboration with the U.S. Department of Education, the staffs of PBS Kids Ready to Learn and PBS Children's Programming have identified nine subject areas to guide development of the growing minds of young children. These subject areas are based on the list of school-readiness skills identified by the Technical Planning Subgroup on School-readiness for the National Education Goals Panel (1991). Skill development within these subject areas is woven throughout the Clifford TV series and the activities on the Clifford website.

Click any Subject Area below to see

  • a description of the importance of the subject area's skills to a young child

CRITICAL THINKING AND PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS
LANGUAGE AND LITERACY SKILLS
PHYSICAL AND MOTOR SKILLS

LIFE SKILLS
UNDERSTANDING AND APPRECIATING DIVERSITY
MUSIC AND ART APPRECIATION AND PERFORMANCE SKILLS

 

SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL SKILLS

Children are social beings by nature, and their attempts to "connect " with family, friends, caregivers, and the world around them begin early. Empathizing, comforting, cooperating, making gestures of affection, sharing, and helping are among the young child's means of making social contact. Goals for social and emotional skill development children include:

  • learning to name the feelings one has
  • understanding that others have similar feelings
  • understanding that people reveal their feelings through expressions, postures, words, and actions
  • exploring creative responses to a wide range of emotions
  • recognizing socially appropriate responses to emotions

CRITICAL THINKING AND PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS

Problem-solving is a step-by-step sequence that leads from defining the problem, through searching for answers and information, to testing hypotheses with the understanding that the number of solutions is limited. Critical thinking is the process of analyzing a situation, looking at it from different perspectives, and and evaluating how well a solution will work or is working. Critical thinking is differentiated from creative thinking, a much broader term that applies to a process—reasoning in an open-ended manner—with an unlimited number of solutions. Goals for critical thinking and problem-solving skills development include:

  • discovering how to break a problem into smaller tasks that make up the problem
  • learning that resources—such as books, other children, and adults—are available for help in solving problems
  • understanding that frustration is sometimes a part of solving a problem, but that with patience, thought, and self-confidence, one can find answers

Here are activities that develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills:

PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT AND MOTOR SKILLS

Physical development refers to the overall growth, health, and fitness of a child's growing body. Motor skills refer to the child's ability to use the muscle groups needed to perform various tasks. Like any other developing skills, physical and motor skills require exploration and practice. Although all children follow the same general sequence of physical growth and motor development, each child's development timetable will vary. Goals for physical development and motor skills include:

  • experiencing the many capabilities of the body
  • learning how to approach and accomplish physical tasks
  • appreciating the complexity of one's own movement and motor skills

Here are activities that develop physical and motor skills:

  • understanding that differences in people's appearance, behavior, taste in food and clothing, choice of games, and holiday observances are often
  • feeling that it is fine to ask questions to find out more about how people are different
  • feeling confident and proud of the ways in which one may be different from friends or classmates
  • recognizing that career choices are open to all people
