PBS Kids Shows

I'm really pleased with Sid the Science Kid (may recommend that my students watch it!) but what's the deal with the de-emphasis of phonics on the reading shows? Research does indicate that "phonemical awareness" (or something like that) is more important than phonics, and reason dictates that in a language as crazy non-phonenitcal as English (I had ghoti for Shabbos dinner, for example) phonics are not the best way to learn reading ... but still, it seems that every so often (shortly before I went into pre-school, nowadays it seems) everyone gets too excited about research that is never as conclusive as is claimed and reason that only goes so far in an irrational world (nu? if the world were so rational, English would be phonetic so phonics would work anyway ...) with the result that, well, kids just don't learn to read.

So? What's with the lack of phonics in the reading oriented kids shows?

Comments:
The first question many people have about links london one way links is why are they so important.If you links of london compared two websites that had exactly the links jewellery same content but one of them had one hundred one way links versus none on the other site links of london uk you would see that the site with one way links had a much better cheap links of london ranking with each search engine. links of london bracelet The primary reason for this is there is no reason for one site links of london charms to link to another without a reciprocating link other than that links of london watches site determines that the website is an authority on it's given niche links of london rings A one way link is when a website links to another site without links of london necklaces asking for a reciprocal link back.
