´╗┐The name of the show appears in colourful letters on an animated sky. It reads "TVO Kids Power hour of learning. Teacher edition."

The caption changes to "Today's primary lesson: Order up!"

The caption changes to "Primary 1 to 3. Teacher Joel."

Teacher Joel is in his twenties, with short straight black hair and a shadow of a beard. He wears a black sweater.

He waves at the camera and says BYE, TVOKIDS!
THANKS FOR WATCHING!
I'LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME!
WAIT A SECOND.
THAT DOESN'T SEEM RIGHT.
THAT'S NOT HOW
WE START AN EPISODE.
WHEN WE START AN EPISODE,
AT THE BEGINNING
I SAY HI AND I WELCOME YOU.
IN THE MIDDLE OF AN EPISODE,
WE DO SOME LEARNING TOGETHER,
WE WATCH SOME COOL VIDEOS,
AND I TEACH YOU
SOME AWESOME LESSONS.
AND AT THE END
OF OUR TIME TOGETHER,
THAT'S WHEN I SAY GOODBYE.
SOMETHING'S A LITTLE OFF.
LET'S TRY THIS AGAIN.
HI, STUDENTS!
WELCOME TO
TVOKIDS
POWER HOUR OF LEARNING.
MY NAME IS TEACHER JOEL
AND I'M SO EXCITED
TO BE HERE WITH YOU
AT HOME FOR THE NEXT HOUR
DOING SOME FUN
AND LEARNING TOGETHER.
NOW, THAT SOUNDS LIKE
SOMETHING I WOULD SAY
AT THE BEGINNING
OF AN EPISODE.
I'VE GIVEN YOU
A BIT OF A CLUE.
TODAY WE ARE TALKING
ABOUT ORDER,
AND THE IMPORTANCE
OF DOING THINGS IN ORDER.
YOU SAW WHAT HAPPENED
WHEN I STARTED THE EPISODE
BY SAYING GOODBYE.
THAT WASN'T THE RIGHT ORDER,
AND IT PROBABLY FELT
A BIT CONFUSING.
AS WE'LL LEARN
TOGETHER TODAY,
DOING THINGS
AND PUTTING THINGS IN ORDER
IS IMPORTANT
IN ALL TYPES OF LEARNING.
THINK ABOUT LANGUAGE.
WHEN WE'RE TALKING, READING,
WRITING, SPELLING WORDS,
IT'S SO IMPORTANT
THAT WE WORK HARD
TO PUT THINGS
IN THE RIGHT ORDER.
SAME GOES FOR MATH.
IF I'M COUNTING,
IT'S SUPER DUPER IMPORTANT
THAT I'M COUNTING MY NUMBERS
IN THE RIGHT ORDER,
SO I DON'T GET JUMBLED.
AND PUTTING THINGS IN ORDER
IS HUGE IN SCIENCE.
THINK ABOUT FOLLOWING
THE INSTRUCTIONS
OF A SCIENCE EXPERIMENT.
IT'S SO IMPORTANT
THAT YOU GO IN ORDER.
AS YOU CAN SEE,
THIS IS A BIG IDEA.
WE'RE GONNA TALK ABOUT IT
TOGETHER FOR THE NEXT HOUR,
BUT AS YOU KNOW,
I LIKE TO REMIND YOU AT HOME
TO GET YOURSELVES COMFORTABLE,
SITTING IN A PLACE WHERE
YOU CAN SEE AND HEAR
THE TV OR YOUR COMPUTER
NICE AND CLEARLY
AND YOU'RE NOT GONNA
GET DISTRACTED.
AND AS ALWAYS
I'M GONNA ASK YOU
TO BRING SOMETHING
YOU CAN WRITE WITH-
A PENCIL,
A MARKER, A CRAYON,
AND SOMETHING
YOU CAN WRITE ON-
SOME PAPER
OR YOUR FAVOURITE NOTEBOOK.
BECAUSE AS WE GO, WE'LL BE DOING
SOME LEARNING TOGETHER,
BUT I'M ALSO GONNA GIVE YOU
IDEAS FOR LEARNING
THAT YOU CAN CONTINUE
AT HOME LATER TODAY
OR AS THE WEEK GOES ON.
AWESOME.
WE'RE GOOD TO GO.
THE FIRST THING
WE'RE GONNA LOOK AT TOGETHER
IS AN EPISODE OF
WACKY WORD
SONGS
THAT'S ALL ABOUT...
YOU GUESSED IT...
PUTTING THINGS
IN THE RIGHT ORDER.
I'LL SEE YOU AFTER.

A caption reads "TVO Kids presents."

Colourful animated letters with googly eyes jump around and form the name "Wacky Word Songs."

A song says IT's THE WACKY WACKY WORD SONGS.
OH YEAH.

Zoey is in her early teens, with long straight brown hair and wears brown trousers, a polka dotted yellow sweater and a denim jacket.

In the attic, Zoey says THAT'S MY SHOW FOR TODAY!
BYE!
THANKS FOR WATCHING!
OH!
WAIT A SEC.
I CAN'T START A SHOW WITH THE
ENDING, CAN I?
IT MATTERS WHAT ORDER YOU PUT
THINGS IN.
LIKE, WHEN YOUR STORYBOOK COMES
APART, YOU CAN'T JUST PUT THE
PAGES BACK IN ANY ORDER.
THERE'S A BEGINNING, MIDDLE, AND
END.
FOR INSTANCE...

(music plays)

Zoey sings a song that says IT WAS A DARK
AND STORMY NIGHT.
SOMETHING OUT THERE GAVE ME A
FRIGHT!
WHEN SUDDENLY OUT WENT THE
LIGHT!
TA DAH!

Camper Zoey says HUH?
THAT'S IT?
YOU NEED TO TELL THIS STORY
AGAIN!
THIS TIME WITH THE MIDDLE AND
DON'T FORGET THE END.

Zoey says OH.
THE END, RIGHT.

She sings EVERYTHING TURNED OUT ALL
RIGHT.
SO I WENT TO BED THEN FOR THE
NIGHT.

Camper Zoey says YOU'RE STILL
MISSING A LITTLE!
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE MIDDLE?

Zoey says OH YEAH RIGHT.
THE MIDDLE.
OKAY I'LL START OVER AGAIN.

She sings IT WAS A DARK AND STORMY
NIGHT.
SOMETHING OUT THERE GAVE ME A
FRIGHT.
WHEN SUDDENLY OUT WENT THE
LIGHT!
IN THE SHADOW, I SAW TEETH,
SHARP AND WHITE!
I THOUGHT THAT THEY MIGHT
BITE!
BUT IT WAS JUST MY DOG.
SHE PULLED OUT THE CORD TO
MY LIGHT.
EVERYTHING TURNED OUT ALL
RIGHT.
SO I WENT TO BED THEN FOR THE
NIGHT.
OH YEAH!

The song ends.

Camper Zoey gives her the thumbs up.

Zoey says STORIES ALWAYS HAVE A BEGINNING,
MIDDLE, AND END.
AND SO DOES THIS SHOW.
THE END!

A caption reads "Apartment 11 production."

The caption changes to "Order."

Joel says AND I'M BACK!
AS WE SAW IN THAT VIDEO,
PUTTING THINGS
IN THE RIGHT ORDER
FROM BEGINNING,
TO MIDDLE, TO END
IS SO IMPORTANT.
ANOTHER WAY
WE CAN THINK ABOUT IT
IS WHAT WE DO FIRST,
WHAT WE DO NEXT,
AND WHAT WE DO FINALLY
AT THE END.
SO, I WANT YOU TO THINK OF
SOMETHING YOU DO EVERY DAY.
HOW ABOUT WAKING UP
IN THE MORNING?
FOR ME, THE FIRST THING I DO
IS I WAKE UP,
THEN I GET OUT OF BED.
NEXT, I BRUSH MY TEETH.
I FEED MY CAT.
AND FINALLY,
I MAKE MYSELF SOME COFFEE.
THOSE ARE THE STEPS
TO MY MORNING ROUTINE.
AND IT'S SO IMPORTANT I DO THEM
IN THE RIGHT ORDER.
I TOLD YOU THE FIRST THING I DO
IS WAKE UP AND GET OUT OF BED.
I HAVE TO DO THAT FIRST.
CAN I FEED MY CAT FIRST?
CAN I MAKE COFFEE FIRST?
NOPE.
THE STEPS HAVE TO BE IN ORDER.
THE FIRST THING I DO
IS WAKE UP AND GET OUT OF BED.
SO, OUR FIRST PIECE
OF LEARNING TOGETHER TODAY,
I WANT YOU TO THINK OF SOMETHING
YOU DO EVERY SINGLE DAY.
MAYBE IT IS MAKING YOUR BED.
MAYBE IT IS GETTING YOURSELF
A BOWL OF CEREAL AND MILK.
OR MAYBE IT'S
DOING YOUR HOMEWORK. OKAY?
THINK OF SOMETHING
YOU DO EVERY DAY
AND ON YOUR PIECE OF PAPER
I WANT YOU TO WRITE THIS TITLE-

He holds up a board and reads "MY STEPS FOR___,"
AND YOU'RE GONNA FILL IN
THAT BLANK
WITH WHATEVER
YOU'RE WRITING THE STEPS OF.
SO FOR ME, I WOULD SAY MY STEPS
FOR WAKING UP IN THE MORNING.
BUT DEPENDING ON
WHAT YOU'RE GONNA THINK ABOUT,
YOU'RE GONNA FILL THAT IN THERE.
OKAY?
SO GO AHEAD AND WRITE THAT NOW.
"MY STEPS FOR--."
WHATEVER IT IS.
NOW, I'VE PUT NUMBERS DOWN
THE SIDE, ONE THROUGH FIVE,
BUT DEPENDING ON WHAT JOB
YOU'RE WRITING ABOUT
OR TASK YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT,
YOU WILL NEED DIFFERENT NUMBERS,
OKAY?
SO, YOU CAN
WRITE THE NUMBERS LAST.
YOU DON'T NECESSARILY KNOW
THERE'S GONNA BE FIVE STEPS.
I JUST WANTED TO SHOW YOU
THAT WE'RE GONNA WRITE
THE NUMBERS DOWN THAT WAY.
NOW, I'M GONNA CHALLENGE YOU
TO THINK REALLY CAREFULLY
WITH THIS JOB,
BECAUSE MAYBE YOU'RE THINKING
OF SOMETHING AND YOU THINK,
"OH, THERE'S NOT REALLY
MANY STEPS TO THAT.
"MAYBE ONLY ONE OR TWO."
BUT I'M GONNA CHALLENGE YOU TO
THINK A LITTLE MORE CAREFULLY,
BECAUSE SOMETIMES WHEN WE'RE NOT
THINKING CAREFULLY,
WE CAN SKIP STEPS.
HERE'S AN EXAMPLE.
LET'S PRETEND
I WAS DOING THE STEPS
TO MAKING
CHEESE AND CRACKERS.
OKAY? ONE OF MY FAVOURITE
SNACKS. I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU.
IF I'M NOT THINKING CAREFULLY,
I MIGHT SAY THE FIRST STEP
TO MAKING CHEESE AND CRACKERS...
IT'S NOT A VERY BIG JOB,
THERE'S NOT MANY STEPS...
THE FIRST STEP IS
PUT THE CHEESE ON THE CRACKERS.
AND THEN YOU'RE DONE.
RIGHT?
IS THAT THE FIRST STEP?
IS THAT THE ONLY STEP?
LET'S SEE.
PUT THE CHEESE...
ON THE CRACKERS.

He puts the package of sliced cheese on top of a box of crackers.

He says I DID IT.
I DID THE FIRST STEP. I PUT
THE CHEESE ON THE CRACKERS.
NOW, DOES THIS LOOK LIKE A NICE
SNACK THAT YOU'D WANT TO EAT?
I DON'T THINK SO.
YOU CAN SEE, I DIDN'T THINK
CAREFULLY ABOUT THE STEPS.
I RUSHED MY THINKING.
I THOUGHT, "SURE,
"THE FIRST STEP IS PUTTING
THE CHEESE ON THE CRACKERS."
NO, IT'S NOT!
THE FIRST STEP IS MAYBE
OPENING THE CHEESE.
OR OPENING THE CRACKERS.
THE NEXT STEP MIGHT BE,
"TAKE OUT A CRACKER."
THE NEXT STEP MIGHT BE,
"SLICE THE CHEESE."
THE NEXT STEP MIGHT BE,
"GET OUT A PLATE."
SO, I'M NOT PUTTING
THE CHEESE ON THE CRACKER
UNTIL THE FIFTH
OR MAYBE EVEN SIXTH STEP.
AND WHEN I WASN'T
THINKING CAREFULLY,
I SAID IT WAS MY FIRST STEP.
SO, A FUN WAY
TO TEST OUT YOUR STEPS
WHEN YOU THINK
YOU'VE GOT THEM ALL,
IS YOU CAN SHOW THIS
TO SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY
AND HAVE THEM ACT IT OUT.
THAT CAN REALLY HELP US SEE
IF WE SKIPPED A STEP.
LIKE I SHOWED YOU, PUTTING
THE CHEESE ON THE CRACKERS,
THAT WAS NOT THE FIRST STEP!
IF I JUST PUT CHEESE
ON CRACKERS,
I'VE SKIPPED OPENING THEM UP,
TAKING THE CRACKER OUT,
GETTING A PLATE.
SO, WHATEVER
YOU'RE THINKING OF AT HOME,
WHETHER IT'S YOUR STEPS
FOR MAKING YOUR BED,
YOUR STEPS FOR MAKING
ONE OF YOUR FAVOURITE SNACKS,
YOUR STEPS FOR...
GOING TO PLAY OUTSIDE,
YOU NEED TO CHALLENGE YOURSELF
TO THINK OF EVERY SINGLE STEP
AND LIKE WE'RE
TALKING ABOUT TODAY,
MAKE SURE THEY'RE
IN THE RIGHT ORDER.
NOW,
FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS
IS NOT THE ONLY TIME
ORDER IS IMPORTANT.
I TOLD YOU AT THE START
OF THIS EPISODE
THAT WHEN WE THINK
ABOUT STORIES,
TELLING STORIES,
READING STORIES,
WRITING STORIES,
IT'S SO IMPORTANT THAT WE ARE
GOING IN THE RIGHT ORDER.
DID YOU KNOW THAT EVERY STORY
HAS A BEGINNING,
A MIDDLE, AND AN END?
IT'S TRUE.
PICK UP ANY BOOK
OFF YOUR SHELF
AND I PROMISE YOU,
IN THAT STORY
THERE'S A BEGINNING,
A MIDDLE, AND AN END.
EVERY STORY HAS THEM
AND THEY GO IN THAT ORDER.
WE DON'T WANT TO START
AT THE END
AND GO ALL THE WAY BACK
TO THE BEGINNING.
WE HAVE A BEGINNING, MIDDLE,
AND END.
THINK ABOUT A STORY
YOU MIGHT KNOW
CALLED
THE THREE LITTLE PIGS.
AT THE BEGINNING
OF THE STORY,
WE MEET THE CHARACTERS-
THE PIGS.
AND WE LEARN
THAT THEY EACH BUILT A HOUSE-
OUT OF STRAW, STICKS,
AND BRICKS.
IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT STORY
WE MEET THE BIG BAD WOLF
AND WE REALIZE THAT HE IS TRYING
TO BLOW DOWN THE HOUSES.
HE BLOWS DOWN THE FIRST HOUSE,
HE BLOWS DOWN THE SECOND HOUSE.
AND AT THE END OF THAT STORY,
THE PIGS GET CLEVER
AND THEY TRICK THAT WOLF.
HE CAN'T BLOW DOWN
THE BRICK HOUSE,
AND WE KNOW
HOW THAT STORY ENDS.
THAT'S THE BEGINNING AND MIDDLE
AND END OF THAT STORY.
OUR NEXT LEARNING TOGETHER
TODAY
IS GONNA BE MAKING A PLAN
TO WRITE OUR OWN STORIES.
I LOVE WRITING STORIES.
MAYBE YOU'VE DONE THAT BEFORE.
WE LOVE TO READ STORIES,
BUT YOU CAN BE YOUR VERY OWN
AUTHOR AND WRITE A STORY.
OF COURSE, PUTTING ALL THE PARTS
OF YOUR STORY IN?
ORDER!
THAT'S OUR BIG IDEA TODAY.
NOW, BEFORE WE GET STARTED
TALKING ABOUT THE STEPS
TO WRITING A STORY,
TOGETHER, LET'S WATCH AN EPISODE
OF
THE WACKY WORD SHOW
WHICH IS ALL ABOUT
WRITING OUR OWN STORIES,
BEING AN AUTHOR,
AND MAKING SURE
THAT WHEN YOU WRITE A STORY,
EVERYTHING GOES IN ORDER.
ENJOY THE EPISODE, GET SOME
GREAT IDEAS FOR YOUR STORY,
AND I'LL SEE YOU AFTER.

Zoey plays the ukulele in the attic.

Zoey is in her early teens, with long wavy brown hair and wears red trousers, a printed yellow shirt and a denim jacket.

As colourful animated letters form the name "The Wacky Word Show," a song plays that says IT'S THE WACKY WACKY WORD
SHOW.
THE WACKY WACKY WORD SHOW.
THE WACKY WORD SHOW.
SO WACKY.

Zoey and Lukas dance in the attic.

Lukas is around 11, with short straight brown hair and wears jeans and a gray and greens sweater.

Zoey says IT'S ME ZOEY.

Lukas says I'M LUKAS.

Zoey says WE PLAY WITH WORDS.

In animation, a dictionary walk around the Earth as Lukas and Zoey dance on the Moon.

Lukas says HAVE LOTS OF FUN.

Zoey says ON THE WACKY WORD
SHOW FUN IS NUMBER 1.

As they play the ukulele, animate musical notes come out and the word "Fun" appears in colourful animated letters.

Zoey says NOW WE LOVE BOOKS AND
STORIES.

Lukas jumps inside a dictionary and Zoey closes it.

Lukas says MAKE STUFF UP THAT'S
WHAT WE DO.

Zoey says DID WE MENTION ACTING
WACKY?

They both say YEAH WE DO THAT TOO.

Zoey says WE GOT TONS OF
GUESTS AND BOOBOO BOT.

Different kids appear on several screens.

Booboo Bot is a robot made out of an old typewriter as the body and a tablet as the head.

Lukas says GAMES AND JOKES WITH
YOU.

The song continues IT'S THE WACKY WACKY WORD
SHOW.
THE WACKY WACKY WORD SHOW.
THE WACKY WORD SHOW.
HERE WE GO.

Lukas and Zoey run along with the animated letters.

The song continues THE WACKY WORD SHOW.
SO WACKY!

Zoey and Lucas carry a bunch of books to the attic.

Zoey says THE LIBRARY
IS THE COOLEST.
THEY HAD ADVENTURE BOOKS,

Lukas says SCIENCE FICTION BOOKS...

Zoey says WE WERE READING
FOR HOURS!

Lukas says THEY HAD FANTASY BOOKS,
SCARY BOOKS.

Zoey says I'D LOVE TO WRITE A STORY
AS GOOD AS THE ONES
WE READ IN THE LIBRARY.

Lukas says LET'S DO IT!
LET'S WRITE STORIES.

Zoey says WE'LL WRITE STORIES
THAT WE WANNA READ!

Lukas says ABOUT-- WIZARDS!

Zoey says OH, AND DON'T FORGET
THEIR FRIENDS,
THE ROBOTS!

Lukas says AND WHAT ABOUT...
THE CIRCUS BEARS?

Zoey says IN SPACE!

They both say SPACE WIZARD BEARS
WITH ROBOT ARMS!

Zoey says I WOULD READ THAT.

Lukas says ME TOO!

Zoey says TODAY'S SHOW IS ALL ABOUT
WRITING STORIES.

Lukas says WE'RE GONNA USE
OUR IMAGINATIONS.

Zoey says AND WE'RE GONNA GO
ALL SORTS OF CRAZY PLACES,
'CAUSE IN A STORY, YOU CAN GO
ANYWHERE YOU THINK OF.
LET'S GO!

Lukas says LET'S GO!

Zoey sings a song that goes AS YOU WRITE
IN YOUR WRITING CHAIR
A PEN STUCK IN
YOUR WRITING HAIR
YOU'LL SEE YOU CAN
GO ANYWHERE
YOU CAN GO ANYWHERE
SPOOKY CAVE
WITH A SCARY BEAR
RAWR!
AN AIR BALLOON
HIGH IN THE AIR
WOO-HOO!
OR EVEN ON A DENTIST CHAIR
YOU CAN GO ANYWHERE
THE SETTING IS
THE PLACE YOU'LL GO
WHEN YOU WRITE YOUR BOOK
OR TV SHOW
THERE'S NO LIMIT
TO HOW FAR YOU'LL GO
IT'S THE ONLY THING
YOU NEED TO KNOW
YOU CAN GO ANYWHERE
(HOWLING, CRICKETS CHIRPING)

Back in the attic, Zoey says CARTOONS ARE STORIES TOO.
LUKAS, IF YOU COULD BE
IN A CARTOON,
WHAT CHARACTER
WOULD YOU BE?

Lukas says WELL, I REALLY LIKE
SPELLING BEES, SO... .MAYBE MY CHARACTER COULD BE
A BEE THAT SPELLS.

An animated bee with Lukas' face appears.

Lukas says I'D BE THE SPELLING BEE!
THE SPELLING BEE
WOULD NEVER BE TRICKED
BY HARD-TO-SPELL WORDS!
(LAUGHING)

Lukas says WHAT CHARACTER
WOULD YOU BE?
GET IT- "BE," "BEE"?

Zoey chuckles and says I THOUGHT
YOU'D NEVER ASK.
I'D BE...
WORD WOMAN!
ABLE TO WRITE ANY STORY
ABOUT ANYTHING
AND MAKE IT AMAZING!

Animated children read the story and says YAY!

Zoey says OTHER POWERS INCLUDE FLIGHT,
SUPER STRENGTH,
AND THE ABILITY TO MAKE
PIZZA APPEAR AT ANY TIME.

Kids say YAY!

The bee says COOL CHARACTERS!

Lukas says SO,
WHAT DO WE DO NOW?

Zoey says I HAVE NO IDEA.
I GUESS EVEN THE MOST
SUPER CHARACTERS
STILL NEED A STORY.
(PEN SCRATCHING)

Lukas writes, crumples paper and tosses it in the basket.

He says I WAS THINKING,
THERE MUST BE A WAY TO PUT
ALL MY IDEAS INTO A STORY,
AND I FOUND OUT
ABOUT THE FIVE W'S.

A caption reads "Who? What? When? Where? Why?"

Lukas says THE FIVE W'S ARE QUESTIONS
THAT A STORY ANSWERS.
"WHO" IS EASY-
MY CHARACTER, THE SPELLING BEE.
NOW THE "WHAT."
A SPELLING BEE
WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
WHEN? LET'S SAY
A FEW WEEKS FROM TODAY.
WHERE? IMAGINE A SPELLING BEE
OUTSIDE IN THE ARCTIC.
THE SPELLING BEE
NEEDS TO SAVE THE DAY
BECAUSE ALL THE KIDS ARE
TOO COLD TO SPELL PROPERLY.
(WIND WHOOSHING)
THAT'S THE "WHY."
THIS IS FUN. YEAH!

Kids say YEAH!

Animated letters say GAME SHOW, GAME SHOW,
GAME SHOW
GAME SHOW!
(APPLAUSE)

Zoey says WELCOME TO THE WEIRD AND
WONDERFUL WORLD OF W'S.
THE FIVE W'S, THAT IS-
THE FIVE THINGS
EVERY STORY NEEDS.
I'M HERE WITH NATHAN AND BROOKE
ON TEAM STORY SEEKERS.

Brooke is around 12, with long wavy brown hair and wears a printed gray T-shirt and an eggshell cardigan sweater.

Nathan is around 12, with short curly brown hair and wears a maroon sweatshirt with a print on the front.

Zoey says AND CECE AND THOMAS
ON TEAM W CHASERS.

Thomas is around 11, with short blond hair and wears a gray sweater with a print on the front.

Cece is around 12, with long wavy red hair in a low ponytail and wears a floral sweater.

Zoey stands next to the board and says BEHIND EACH SQUARE IS A W!
GUESS WHICH W IT IS,
AND YOU GET TO KEEP IT.
THE FIRST TEAM TO HAVE THE FIVE
W'S AND READ THEIR STORY WINS.
TEAM STORY SEEKERS,
CHOOSE THE FIRST NUMBER.

Nathan says UM, WE'LL TAKE
NUMBER SEVEN.

Zoey says ALL RIGHT,
NUMBER SEVEN.
GRANDMA'S HOUSE.
ALL RIGHT, WHAT W?
(WHISPERING)

Zoey says SO WHAT'S YOUR ANSWER?

Nathan WHERE.

Brooke says WHERE.

Zoey says GRANDMA'S HOUSE
IS A LOCATION.
GOOD JOB, GUYS!

Thomas says NINE.

Zoey says "CLIMB A TREE."

Thomas says WHAT.

Zoey says CLIMBING A TREE
IS A "WHAT."
GOOD JOB.
THERE YOU GO.

Nathan says WE'LL TAKE
NUMBER FOUR.

Zoey says NUMBER FOUR.
"FIVE MINUTES AGO."
HMM, INTERESTING.
(WHISPERING)

Nathan says WHEN.

Zoey says FIVE MINUTES IS TIME.
GOOD JOB.

Cece says UM, SIX.

Zoey says LET'S SEE-
"TO DISCOVER ALIENS."
OOH,
THAT'S A HARD ONE.

Cece says WHY?

Zoey says GOOD JOB, GUYS!
TWO TILES AND TWO TILES.

Brooke says NUMBER TWO.

Zoey says TO SAVE THE WORLD.

Nathan says WHEN?

Zoey says SORRY, THAT'S WRONG.

Thomas says 13, PLEASE.

Zoey says MAKE A SANDWICH.

(WHISPERING)

Cece says WHAT.

Thomas says WHAT.

Zoey says GOOD JOB!
SANDWICH IS A "WHAT."
BUT YOU ALREADY
HAVE A WHAT,
SO YOU STILL NEED
THREE W'S.

Brooke says WE'LL TRY TWO AGAIN.

Zoey says ALL RIGHT, DO YOU THINK
YOU'VE GOT IT?

The tile reads "To save the world."

Nathan says YES. WHY.

Zoey says GOOD JOB!
"TO SAVE THE WORLD."

Cece says UM, WE'LL TAKE
NUMBER FIVE.

The tile reads "To find gold."

Zoey says OOH, I LIKE GOLD.
(GIGGLING)

Cece says WHY.

Zoey says GOOD JOB!
BUT YOU ALREADY
HAVE A "WHY" TOO!

Nathan says EIGHT?

The tile reads "A long time ago."

Nathan says WHEN?

Zoey says YEP! IT'S TIME.
GOOD JOB!
BUT YOU ALREADY
HAVE A "WHEN."
THAT'S A LUCKY BREAK
FOR TEAM W CHASERS.

Thomas says 15?

Zoey says SURE. LET'S SEE.

The tile reads "In the year 2099."

Thomas says WHEN?

Cece says WHEN?

Zoey says GOOD JOB!
THAT'S A LONG TIME.
(CHUCKLING)
TEAMS ARE TIED!

Nathan says ONE.

The tile reads "Booboo Bot."

Nathan says UH... (WHISPERING)
WHO.

Zoey says YOU'RE RIGHT- BOOBOO BOT
IS OUR FAVOURITE FRIEND.
THERE YOU GO.
TEAM W CHASERS,
YOU BETTER HURRY UP.
THEY'RE ALMOST DONE!
THEY ONLY NEED
ONE MORE W.

Cece says UM, WE'LL TAKE
NUMBER THREE.

The tile reads "Do experiments."

Thomas says WHAT?

Zoey says THAT'S RIGHT!
BUT YOU ALREADY
HAVE TWO OF THEM.

Nathan says TEN.

Zoey says TEN?

The tile reads "Johnny."

Nathan says WHO.

Zoey says YEP, THAT'S A WHO!
BUT IT'S NOT THE W
YOU NEEDED.
CLOSE GAME!

Thomas says 11.

The tile reads "On a spaceship."

Thomas says WHERE.

Zoey says GOOD JOB! WHERE.
THAT'S FOUR W'S
FOR BOTH TEAMS!
ALL RIGHT, STORY SEEKERS,
YOU'RE SO CLOSE!
WHAT NUMBER?

Nathan says 14.

The tile reads "The North Pole."

NAthan says UH, WHERE?

Zoey says YOU'RE RIGHT,
BUT YOU ALREADY HAVE ONE.
BUT YOU CAN STILL WIN
IF TEAM W CHASERS
DOESN'T ANSWER CORRECTLY.

She flips the last tile and says COACH CATHY.

Thomas and Cece say WHO.

Zoey says WHO?
GOOD JOB!
YOU'VE GOT YOUR FIVE W'S!
BUT BEFORE I CAN
GIVE YOU THE WIN,
YOU HAVE TO PUT YOUR STORY
TOGETHER IN THE RIGHT ORDER.
(DRUMROLL)
ALL RIGHT, LET'S SEE.

Cece says "ON A SPACESHIP
IN THE YEAR 2099,
"COACH CATHY CLIMB A TREE
TO DISCOVER ALIENS."

Zoey says ALL RIGHT.
DRUMROLL, PLEASE!
W CHASERS, YOU WIN!
(BELL DINGING)

Thomas says YES!

Zoey says GOOD JOB, EVERYONE.
IT WAS A REALLY CLOSE GAME.

A girl in a pink sweater says WHAT'S A SUPERHERO'S
FAVOURITE PART OF A JOKE?
THE PUNCH LINE!
BOOM! BOOM!
(GIGGLING)

Back in the attic, Zoey says DO YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE TELLS
A STORY WITH THE FIVE W'S?
VIDEO GAMES.

Lukas says AND THEY'RE SUPER FUN
TO PLAY!

Zoey says WANNA MEET
A VIDEO GAME WRITER?

Lukas sings a song that says LET'S MEET SOMEONE
WHO GOES TO GREAT PAINS
TO WRITE THE STORIES
IN VIDEO GAMES

Zoey sings I CAN'T BELIEVE WE GET
TO PICK HER BRAIN
IT'S CARRIE YOUNG,
AND THAT'S HER NAME

Carrie walks in and says HI, GUYS.

Carrie is in her thirties, with shoulder length slightly wavy brown hair in a half do and wears glasses, jeans and a black shirt.

Lukas says HI, CARRIE!
HOW'S IT GOIN'?

Carrie says AH, I PLAYED VIDEO GAMES
THE WHOLE WAY OVER HERE
AND MY THUMBS ARE TIRED!
(GIGGLING)

Carrie says BUT I'M SUPER HAPPY
TO BE HERE!

Zoey says SO, HOW'S
WRITING VIDEO GAMES
DIFFERENT FROM
WRITING STORIES?

Carrie says WELL, WHEN YOU GUYS
WRITE STORIES,
GENERALLY
YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN
AND YOU'RE WRITING
EVERYTHING THAT YOU WANT,
BUT I CAN WORK WITH UP TO
1,000 PEOPLE ON A VIDEO GAME.

Zoey says WOW, THAT'S A LOT
OF PEOPLE.

Carrie says YEAH, AND GAMES CAN TAKE
ANYWHERE FROM
TWO TO FOUR YEARS
TO MAKE, FOR A BIG ONE.

Lukas says COOL.

Carrie says YEAH.
AND ANOTHER WAY THAT GAMES
ARE DIFFERENT IS, UM,
WE DON'T ALWAYS WRITE THE STORY
FROM BEGINNING TO END.
IT'S NOT ALWAYS
WHAT WE CALL "LINEAR."
SOMETIMES, YOU CAN HAVE
DIFFERENT OPTIONS
AND DIFFERENT PLACES
THAT THE STORY CAN TAKE YOU,
AND WE HAVE TO WRITE
ALL OF THOSE.

Lukas says WOW.
SO, WE'RE PRETTY GOOD
AT THREE OF THE FIVE W'S...
WHO, WHEN, AND WHERE...
BUT WE'RE HAVING SOME TROUBLE
WITH WHAT AND WHY.

Carrie says SO, THE WHAT AND THE WHY
IS WHAT WE CALL THE PLOT
OF THE STORY.
AND THE WAY THAT WE DO THAT
IS WE COME UP WITH PROBLEMS
FOR THE CHARACTERS
THAT THEY HAVE TO SOLVE.
AND WE TRY AND GIVE THEM
INTERESTING THINGS TO DO
AND INTERESTING PROBLEMS
THAT THEY HAVE TO SOLVE
AND GIVE THEM CONFLICT
THAT THEY HAVE TO OVERCOME.
YOU CAN IMAGINE
WHAT WOULD HAPPEN
IF WE TOLD A STORY WHERE THE
HERO DIDN'T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS
THAT THEY HAD TO OVERCOME.

Zoey says HMM.

Lukas says HMM.
(VIDEO GAME MUSIC PLAYING)

In a video game, a knight approaches a dragon and the dragon gives him money.

(BELL DINGING)

The dragon says YOU HAVE GOLD.
YOU'VE MADE A FRIEND.
GAME OVER.

Zoey says WELL, THAT WAS
PRETTY BORING.

Lukas says YEAH.
SO, HOW DO YOU MAKE
YOUR GAMES INTERESTING?

Carrie says WHAT WE DO IS MAKE SOMETHING
CALLED A GAME BLUEPRINT.

She unrolls the print on the table.

Zoey says WHOA.
SO BIG!

Carrie says YEAH, THIS IS A WHOLE GAME
IN JUST A BITE-SIZED FORM,
AND WE HANG THESE UP
ON THE WALLS IN THE STUDIO.
SO, YOU HAVE HERE
EVERYTHING THAT YOU'RE
GONNA DO IN THE GAME,
WE HAVE ALL OF THE CHARACTERS
THAT WE'RE GONNA MEET
AT THE DIFFERENT TIMES,
AND EACH
OF THESE GREEN BOXES
ARE THINGS THAT WE KNOW
HAVE TO HAPPEN IN THE STORY,
AND THOSE ARE THE THINGS THAT
I KNOW I'M GONNA HAVE TO WRITE.

Lukas says AND WHAT ABOUT THE YELLOW?

Carrie says THOSE ARE ALL THE DIFFERENT
PLACES THAT YOU GO.

Lukas says OH! COOL.

Carrie says SO I KNOW THAT THIS IS GONNA
TAKE PLACE IN A HOTEL.

Zoey says WE'RE WRITING
A SUPERHERO STORY
ABOUT WORD WOMAN
AND THE SPELLING BEE.

Lukas says DO YOU HAVE
ANY ADVICE FOR US?

Carrie says WELL, IT SOUNDS TO ME
LIKE YOU'VE GOT
SOME SUPER COOL CHARACTERS.
SO YOU JUST HAVE TO REMEMBER TO
GIVE THEM INTERESTING PROBLEMS
AND COME UP WITH
COOL SOLUTIONS
AND WAYS THAT THEY
CAN OVERCOME OBSTACLES.
AND DON'T FORGET,
WRITING IS
SUPPOSED TO BE FUN.
SO YOU GUYS HAVE A GOOD TIME
WHILE YOU'RE DOING IT.
(CHUCKLING)

Zoey says YEAH.
WELL, THANKS, CARRIE,
FOR COMING OVER
AND TEACHING US ALL ABOUT
REALLY COOL VIDEO GAMES.

Lukas says YEAH, THANKS SO MUCH
FOR HELPING.

Carrie says WELL, THANK YOU GUYS
FOR INVITING ME.
I HAD A REALLY GOOD TIME.
(LAUGHING)

In her character, Zoey says IT IS I, WORD WOMAN,
AND MY SUPER PEN.
I THINK I'M GOING TO WRITE A
STORY SET IN THE FARAWAY LAND
OF WORDANTRIA.
HA, HA, HA!
AND I THINK I'M GOING TO
WRITE MY STORY
ABOUT THE SPELLING BEE.
(LAUGHING)

In his character, Lukas walks in and says WHAT AM I DOING HERE?
OH, HEY ZOEY!

Zoey says THAT'S WORD WOMAN TO YOU,
AND YOU'VE JUST ENTERED
MY WRITER'S WORLD.
NOW I HAVE CONTROL
OVER YOU.

Lukas says WHAT?
(RUMBLING)

Lukas tumbles and says WHOA!
WHOA!

Zoey says THE SPELLING BEE
CAME TO SEEK ADVICE
FROM THE WISE AND CHARMING
WORD WOMAN
ABOUT A STORY HE WAS WRITING.
BUT WORD WOMAN DIDN'T LIKE
BEING INTERRUPTED.
SPELLING BEE WAS SHOCKED
TO SEE THE BIGGEST ONE
HE'D EVER SEEN.

Lukas says THE BIGGEST WHAT NOW?

Zoey says IT'S A...
A SPIDER!

A huge animated spider hangs from its web.

Lukas says AAAH!
AAAH! AAH!

Zoey says AND FROM THE
OTHER DIRECTION
CAME A BUNCH OF SERPENTS!

Lukas says AHH! AHH!
(LAUGHING)

Zoey laughs and says AND HE COULDN'T STAY STILL
BECAUSE ABOVE HIS HEAD WAS...
A BUCKET OF SLIME!
(LAUGHING)

Lukas says WAIT!
WHY ARE YOU
DOING THIS TO ME?

Zoey says I'M GIVING YOU PROBLEMS
TO MAKE YOUR CHARACTER
MORE INTERESTING.

Lukas says THANKS A LOT.
HOW AM I SUPPOSED
TO GET THROUGH THIS ONE?
I KNOW!
MY SPELLING SUPERPOWER!

Zoey says WHAT? SPELLING?

Lukas says THAT'S RIGHT-
I AM A MASTER SPELLER.
SO I CAN TAKE
A SPIDER...
A-S-P-I-D-E-R,
AND SWITCH IT TO
THE MUCH MORE HARMLESS
D-I-A-P-E-R-S.
DIAPERS!
BY CHANGING THE SPELLING,
I'VE SOLVED THE PROBLEM.
AND HOW ABOUT WE WRAP UP
THOSE S-E-R-P-E-N-T-S?
JUST SWITCH THE SPELLING
AROUND LIKE SO
TO P-R-E-S-E-N-T-S.
PRESENTS! FOR ME?
YOU SHOULD'VE HAVE!

Zoey says WAIT...

Lukas says NOW A BUCKET OF SLIME.
I'VE GOT JUST THE THING.
S-L-I-M-E
CAN BE MIXED UP TO SPELL
S-M-I-L-E!
SO LET'S DUMP OUT
THAT BUCKET OF SMILES.

The bucket flips and a load of smiley Emojis come down.

Zoey says BUT I...
YOU...
OH, THAT'S KINDA CUTE.

A boy in a blue shirt says HOW DO SUPERHEROES
KEEP THEIR CAPES ON?
SUPERGLUE!
(GIGGLING)

Lukas says IT'S THE WACKY CHALLENGE!
WITH YOUR HOSTS ZOEY...

Zoey says AND LUKAS!

In a red plaid jacket and a curly wig, Lukas says HELLO,
SUPERHERO FANS,
AND WELCOME TO OUR SPECIAL
SUPERPOWER CHALLENGE!

In a red plaid jacket and a blond wig, Zoey says LET'S MEET
OUR CHALLENGERS!
(POOFING)

A girl in a superhero costume pops up and says I'M POWER PUNCH!

Another girl in costume pops up and says I'M OXYGEN GIRL!

A boy in costume says I'M BA...
(GIGGLING)

Zoey says OOPS,
LET'S TRY THAT AGAIN.

The boy says I'M WOLF BOY!

Zoey says TOGETHER, THEY FORM
THE AWESOME TEAM CALLED...

The superheroes say POW!

Lukas says THAT'S AN AWESOME TEAM NAME,
BUT TODAY'S CHALLENGE WILL
HAVE YOU WORKING ON YOUR OWN.

They all say OKAY.

Zoey says YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO
OVERPOWER SOME OBSTACLES
WITHOUT YOUR SUPERPOWER.
(MAGICAL TINKLING)

They shake and get blindfolds on their eyes.

They all say I CAN'T SEE!

Lukas says THE STORY HERE
IS THAT POWER CAT,
THEIR SUPER SIDEKICK,
HAS BEEN TRAPPED
IN AN ALIEN OBSTACLE COURSE
GUARDED BY GIANT BEES.
THE SUPERHERO THAT OVERPOWERS
OUR OBSTACLES THE FASTEST
GETS TO SAVE POWER CAT!
FIRST, SOLVE THIS
FOUR-LETTER POWER PUZZLE
AND YOUR SUPER SIGHT
WILL RETURN!
THREE, TWO, ONE, GO!

The team grab the 3 D letters and try to put the words together.

Zoey says THEY DON'T KNOW IT YET,
BUT THE WORD OUR SUPERHEROES
HAVE TO SPELL IS "HERO."
H-E-R-O.
I HOPE THEY HAVE A FEEL
FOR THIS HEROIC PUZZLE!
(LAUGHING)

Power Punch says I THINK I'M DONE.

Lukas says YOU GOT IT,
POWER PUNCH!
(BELL DINGING)

Oxygen girl says DONE!

Lukas says AND OXYGEN GIRL
IS DONE!
WOLF BOY
IS STILL STRUGGLING.

Wolf boy says I'M DONE.

Lukas says SUPER SIGHT RETURNS!
(ZAPPING)

The blindfolds disappear.

Zoey says BUT THERE'S MORE
TO THIS STORY.
(ZAPPING)

Power Punch says OW, MY LEGS!

Oxygen girl says WHAT HAPPENED?
I CAN'T MOVE!
HOW ARE WE
SUPPOSED TO FLY?

Lukas says THEIR SUPER SPEED
HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY
BY THOSE...
FOOT DECELERATORS
AND ARM INHIBITORS!
MUAHAHA!

Wolf boy says I'M WOLF BOY BUT I FEEL
LIKE A LITTLE LAMB.

Lukas says SUPERHEROES, GO!

Zoey says OUR HEROES HAVE TO ENTER
THE TREACHEROUS
OBSTACLE ARENA.
REMEMBER,
THE FASTEST SUPERHERO
GETS TO SAVE POWER CAT.
(MEOWING)

Lukas says THEIR GOAL IS TO LIFT
THE FIVE STORY PANELS
ON THOSE GIANT CUBES.

Zoey says IT'S NOT GONNA BE EASY
WITH THOSE BUNGEE CORDS
AROUND THEIR ARMS AND LEGS.
THEY'RE CALLED FOOT DECELERATORS
AND ARM INHIBITORS!
(BUZZING)

Zoey says THEY HAVE TO PUT THE STORY
PANELS IN THE RIGHT ORDER.

Lukas says THERE ARE FIVE PARTS
TO THIS STORY.
LIKE ANY STORY,
IT HAS A BEGINNING,
A MIDDLE, AND END.

Zoey says BUT WHICH IS WHICH?
THAT'S WHAT THEY
HAVE TO FIGURE OUT.
THE CORRECT ORDER IS:

A cartoon strip appears and dialog bubbles read "Help" Please help! Oh, someone needs me! What's happening? Help! A giant tiger ate power cat! Look! That's the biggest tiger I've ever seen! Oh, Power Cat! It was just your shadow! Meow!"

Lukas says OXYGEN GIRL IS POWERING
THROUGH THOSE STORY CUBES.
POWER PUNCH HAS TWO
MORE CUBES TO PICK UP.

Zoey says AND LOOK AT OXYGEN GIRL
ALREADY PLACING
HER STORY PANELS
IN ORDER.
(BELL DINGING)

Lukas says WOLF BOY AND POWER PUNCH
HAVE COLLECTED
ALL THEIR CUBES,
BUT OXYGEN GIRL SEEMS TO BE
WAY AHEAD OF THE GAME.
OH, BUT WAIT!
SHE FORGOT
ONE OF HER CUBES!
WOLF BOY AND POWER PUNCH
HAVE TIME TO CATCH UP!
WOLF BOY HAS ONE STORY CUBE
IN THE RIGHT SPOT.
AND NOW A SECOND ONE!

Zoey says AND POWER PUNCH
IS GETTING THE HANG OF IT
WITH THREE STORY CUBES
IN THE RIGHT ORDER!
(BELL DINGING)

Oxygen girl says DONE.

Lukas says OH! OXYGEN GIRL
FINISHES FIRST!
(TIMER BEEPING)

Zoey says IT'S SO CLOSE!

Lukas says POWER PUNCH AND WOLF BOY
ARE NECK IN NECK
FOR SECOND PLACE.
BUT WOLF BOY'S STORY PANELS
AREN'T IN THE RIGHT ORDER.
(BELL DINGING)

Zoey says POWER PUNCH
GOT THE RIGHT ORDER!

Power Punch says I'M DONE.

Lukas says POWER PUNCH IS SECOND,
AND FINALLY WOLF BOY
FIGURES IT OUT.
HE FINISHES THIRD!

Wolf boy says DONE.

Zoey says GREAT JOB, YOU GUYS!

Oxygen girl says OXYGEN GIRL, DONE.

Power Punch says POWER PUNCH, DONE.

Wolf boy says WOLF BOY, DONE.

Lukas says YOU NOW HAVE
ALL YOUR POWERS BACK.

Zoey says YOU WERE ALL HEROES,
BUT AFTER ADDING UP THE TIME
FROM BOTH CHALLENGES,
WE CAN DECLARE
THAT THE WINNER IS...
OXYGEN GIRL!

Oxygen girl says YES!

Zoey says GO SAVE POWER CAT!
(SILLY MUSIC PLAYING)

Wolf boy says WELCOME BACK,
SIDEKICK.

Power Punch says OUR TEAM IS
REUNITED AGAIN!

They all fist bump and says POW!

A girl in a gray T-shirt says WHAT SUPERHERO EATS SOUP?

A girl in a yellow sweater says UH, DON'T KNOW.

The girl in gray says SOUPERMAN.

The girl in yellow says OH! HOHO!
(SIPPING)
YEAH!

(EPIC THEME MUSIC PLAYING)

Now Word Woman and Spelling bee fly up in the sky.

Spelling Bee says WORD WOMAN!

Word Woman says SPELLING BEE,
WE MEET AGAIN.
(WIND WHOOSHING)

Spelling Bee says HAVE YOU BEEN USING
YOUR POWERS FOR GOOD?

Word Woman says SURE.
I'VE WRITTEN
SOME AMAZING STORIES
AND I'VE EATEN
EXTRA DELICIOUS PIZZA.

Spelling Bee says PIZZA ASIDE,
YOU'RE A MENACE, WORD WOMAN,
AND YOU WON'T GET AWAY WITH
YOUR TRICKS WHILE I'M IN TOWN.

Word Woman says WAIT- DO YOU THINK YOU'RE
THE HERO OF THE STORY
AND I'M THE VILLAIN?
I'M OBVIOUSLY THE HERO.
LOOK AT THIS MAGIC PEN.
IT MAKES STORIES APPEAR.

Spelling Bee says BUT LOOK AT
THESE COOL ANTENNAE.
I CAN TRANSFORM MISSPELLED WORDS
INTO THEIR PROPER SPELLING.
BESIDES,
YOU'RE OBVIOUSLY THE VILLAIN.
YOU MADE A GIANT
SPIDER CHASE ME!

Word Woman says HEY, YOU KNOW WHAT?
WITH MY SUPER
STORY WRITING POWERS
AND YOUR SUPER
SPELLING POWERS,
WE CAN BOTH USE
OUR POWERS FOR GOOD!

Spelling Bee says YOU'RE RIGHT-
WE CAN TEAM UP!

Word Woman says GET READY
FOR THE SUPER TEAM
OF WORD WOMAN
AND THE SPELLING BEE!
WEE!

Spelling Bee says WEE!

A girl in a blue T-shirt says WHY IS BATMAN SO SERIOUS?
'CAUSE HE'S NOT THE JOKER.
(LAUGHING)

Booboo Bot says BOOBOO BAT LIKES THAT!

In the attic, Lukas says EVERY STORY HAS A BEGINNING,
A MIDDLE, AND END.
I'M PROGRAMMING
BOOBOO BOT WITH SOME
SO HE CAN WRITE
HIS OWN STORIES.

Booboo bot says "They lived happily ever after. Once upon a time, a dinosaur stomped by..."

(BEEPING)

Lukas says HUH?

Booboo bot says "The cat disappeared. Everything went back to normal in a time long ago."

Lukas says WAIT-
THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.

Booboo bot says "The pirate ship sailed away. A baby was born in a tiny fishing village. A fish granted three wishes."

Lukas says POOR BOOBOO BOT.
HE IS USING BEGINNINGS,
MIDDLES, AND ENDS,
BUT IN THE WRONG ORDER!
LET ME JUST FIX THAT.
(BEEPING)
THERE!

Booboo bot says "Lukas had a robot named Booboo Bot. The robot was programmed wrong. Lukas fixed it and became a spelling bee champion."

(AUDIENCE CHEERING)

Lukas says NOW THAT'S MORE LIKE IT.
(GIGGLING)

A boy in a printed hooded says WHAT'S A SUPERHERO'S
FAVOURITE DRINK?
FRUIT PUNCH!
(GIGGLING)

In the attic, Lukas says I KNOW THAT WORD WOMAN
IS THE ONE WITH THE MAGIC PEN,
BUT I'VE STARTED
WRITING A STORY
BASED ON WHAT
WE FOUND OUT TODAY.

Zoey says HMM.
YOU'RE JUST
MISSING ONE THING-
A TITLE.
HERE, LET ME TRY.
A TITLE HAS TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA
OF WHAT YOUR STORY IS ABOUT
AND MAKE PEOPLE WANNA READ IT.
THIS SHOULD DO.

Lukas says THE ADVENTURES OF...
WORD WOMAN?

Zoey says IT'S CATCHY.

Lukas says I WAS THINKING
OF SOMETHING MORE LIKE
THE SPECTACULAR STORY
OF THE SPELLING BEE!

Zoey says I GUESS
THAT CAN WORK TOO.

Lukas says OR WHAT ABOUT...
WORD WOMAN AND THE SPELLING BEE
SAVE THE WORLD?
I WOULD READ THAT!
(BEEPING)

Booboo Bot says ME TOO.

Zoey says SO, THAT'S OUR SHOW.
IT'S TIME TO GO.
WE HOPE
YOU HAD SOME FUN.

Lukas says WITH VIDEO GAME STORIES
AND TALES OF GLORY.

Zoey says AND NOW
OUR SHOW IS DONE.

They bow down.

(AUDIENCE CHEERING)
(BEEPING)

Booboo Boy says SUPER BOOBOO BOT TO THE RESCUE!

End credits roll as Zoey sings A SPOOKY CAVE
WITH A SCARY BEAR
RAWR!
AN AIR BALLOON
HIGH IN THE AIR
WOO-HOO!
OR EVEN ON A DENTIST CHAIR
YOU CAN GO ANYWHERE
THE SETTING IS
THE PLACE YOU'LL GO
WHEN YOU WRITE YOUR BOOK
OR TV SHOW
THERE'S NO LIMIT
TO HOW FAR YOU'LL GO
YOU CAN GO ANYWHERE
(HOWLING)

Joel says AND WE'RE BACK!
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED
THAT EPISODE.
I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU,
BUT IT GAVE ME TONS OF IDEAS
FOR WRITING STORIES.
AND IF WE'RE GONNA WRITE
OUR OWN STORIES,
THAT'S THE VERY FIRST THING
WE NEED TO DO-
COME UP WITH AN IDEA
OR AN INSPIRATION.
NOW, I'M GONNA SHOW YOU HOW
WE CAN DO THAT IN A FEW STEPS.
IT'S IMPORTANT
THAT WE DO ALL THESE STEPS
TO COME UP WITH
OUR BEST POSSIBLE STORY.
YOU MIGHT WANNA START
YOUR STORY NOW,
JUST BY WRITING IT DOWN.
THERE'S NOTHING WRONG
WITH THAT.
IT MEANS YOU'RE INSPIRED,
YOU'VE GOT GREAT IDEAS.
BUT I'M GONNA
CHALLENGE YOU AT HOME
TO GO THROUGH ALL THESE STEPS
TO MAKE SURE
THAT YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT
EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO PLAN
BEFORE YOU START
WRITING YOUR STORY.
HERE'S WHAT I'M GONNA ASK YOU
TO THINK ABOUT, OKAY?
AS I HOLD UP MY WHITEBOARD,
YOU AT HOME CAN START TO WRITE
THESE WORDS DOWN ON YOUR PAPER.

The steps on the board read "Tittle, characters, setting, beginning, middle, and end."

Joel says YOU'RE NOT GONNA FILL IN
EVERY SECTION RIGHT NOW
BUT I AM GONNA EXPLAIN TO YOU
WHAT EACH SECTION IS FOR,
AND AS YOUR DAY GOES ON,
OR AS YOUR WEEK
OR AS YOUR MONTH GOES ON,
YOU CAN FILL THESE IN
AT HOME.
OKAY?
THE FIRST THING IS A TITLE.
AND EVEN THOUGH IT'S FIRST,
YOU ACTUALLY DON'T HAVE TO
COME UP WITH IT FIRST.
NOW, DIFFERENT AUTHORS
WILL DO DIFFERENT THINGS.
SOME AUTHORS LIKE TO START
WITH A TITLE. OKAY?
IT GIVES THEM A GOOD IDEA
OF WHERE THEY'RE GONNA GO.
MAYBE MY STORY WOULD BE CALLED
THE MYSTERY AT THE BEACH.
OOH!
THAT SOUNDS INTERESTING.
I MIGHT WRITE THAT
AS MY TITLE.
BUT YOU MIGHT ACTUALLY
COME UP WITH YOUR TITLE
AFTER YOU'VE WRITTEN
YOUR STORY.
YOU MIGHT DO YOUR PLAN
LIKE I'M GONNA SHOW YOU,
WRITE YOUR STORY OUT,
AND THEN COME UP
WITH A TITLE AFTER. OKAY?
YOU CAN DO IT WHICHEVER WAY
WORKS FOR YOU.
NOW, SOMETHING
YOU DO WANNA THINK ABOUT
BEFORE YOU START YOUR STORY
ARE CHARACTERS. OKAY?
CHARACTERS ARE
"WHO" IS IN YOUR STORY.
SO FOR ME,
THE MYSTERY AT THE BEACH,
MY CHARACTERS MIGHT BE...
A FAMILY AT THE BEACH,
A PIRATE,
AND A MAGICAL SHARK. OKAY?
YOUR STORY CAN HAVE AS MANY OR
AS FEW CHARACTERS AS YOU WANT,
BUT IT'S IMPORTANT
WE PLAN THAT OUT FIRST, OKAY?
SO HERE, YOU'RE GONNA WRITE
THE WORD "CHARACTERS."
AND AS YOU START
TO PLAN YOUR STORY,
JOT DOWN
WHO IS IN YOUR STORY THERE.
THE NEXT THING WE'RE GONNA
TALK ABOUT IS SETTING,
OR "SETTINGS," 'CAUSE YOU MIGHT
HAVE MORE THAN ONE.
OKAY? A SETTING IS "WHERE."
THE STORY HAPPENS.
FOR ME, IT MIGHT BE THE BEACH
AND ON A PIRATE SHIP.
OKAY?
BUT DEPENDING ON WHAT YOUR STORY
IS AND WHAT YOUR PLAN IS,
YOUR SETTING
MIGHT BE DIFFERENT.
YOU MIGHT HAVE ONE,
YOU MIGHT HAVE MORE THAN ONE.
OKAY?
PLANNING A STORY.
WE COME UP WITH A TITLE,
CHARACTERS- THAT'S "WHO,"
A SETTING- THAT'S "WHERE,"
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY,
WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN.
NOW, YOU KNOW TODAY
WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ORDER,
THE BIG IDEA OF ORDER.
AND I TOLD YOU EARLIER
THAT IN A STORY,
THERE'S ALWAYS A BEGINNING,
MIDDLE, AND END.
SO, BEFORE
YOU WRITE YOUR STORY,
YOU WANNA PLAN OUT
WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN.
BUT YOU'RE NOT GONNA
JUST TELL ME WHAT HAPPENS.
YOU'RE GONNA BREAK IT DOWN
EVEN MORE.
TELL US WHAT HAPPENS
IN THE BEGINNING.
HOW DOES YOUR STORY START?
HOW DO WE MEET
THE CHARACTERS?
WHAT HAPPENS IN THE MIDDLE?
USUALLY THERE'S
SOME SORT OF PROBLEM
THAT THE CHARACTERS
ARE INVOLVED IN
THAT THEY NEED TO SOLVE.
AND FINALLY IN YOUR PLAN,
YOU'RE GONNA DECIDE
HOW YOUR STORY ENDS.
OKAY? THE CHARACTERS
MAYBE SOLVE THE PROBLEM.
MAYBE THEY WORK TOGETHER.
WHAT IS THE ENDING LIKE?
BUT THESE THREE WORDS-
BEGINNING, MIDDLE, AND END,
ARE SO IMPORTANT WHEN WE ARE
PLANNING THE ORDER OF OUR STORY.
SO, MY CHALLENGE
TO YOU AT HOME THIS WEEK
IS TO WRITE YOUR OWN STORY.
BUT I'M GONNA ENCOURAGE YOU
TO DO THIS PLAN FIRST.
IT WILL HELP GUIDE YOU
ALONG THE WAY
AND MAKE SURE YOU'RE THINKING OF
ALL THE THINGS YOU NEED TO PLAN,
AND OF COURSE-
GOING IN ORDER.
NOW, BEFORE WE MOVE ON
TO THE NEXT PART
OF OUR LEARNING TOGETHER,
LET'S ALL TAKE
TEN DEEP BREATHS
TO MAKE SURE WE'RE FOCUSED
AND READY TO LEARN.
IF YOU'D LIKE, YOU CAN PUT
YOUR HANDS ON YOUR BELLY.
TEN DEEP BREATHS,
LET'S COUNT THEM TOGETHER.
COUNT WITH ME.
EIGHT, FOUR...
THREE, NINE...
ONE, SIX...
TWO, SEVEN...
TEN, FIVE.
DID YOU NOTICE SOMETHING STRANGE
ABOUT THE WAY I WAS COUNTING?
I COUNTED TO TEN,
BUT THE NUMBERS I COUNTED
WERE NOT...
IN ORDER.
AND TODAY WE'RE TALKING ABOUT
PUTTING THINGS IN ORDER.
IT'S SO IMPORTANT
WHEN WE COUNT.
WE KNOW WE DON'T COUNT,
"TWO, SEVEN, THREE, NINE."
WE COUNT,
"ONE, TWO, THREE,
"FOUR, FIVE, SIX, SEVEN,
"EIGHT, NINE, TEN!"
IT'S SO IMPORTANT
THAT NUMBERS GO IN ORDER.
AND YOU CAN PRACTISE COUNTING
AT HOME IN ORDER
BY TWOS, BY FIVES,
OR EVEN BY TENS.
NOW, TOGETHER LET'S CHECK OUT
AN EPISODE OF
ODD SQUAD
THAT'S GONNA BE ALL ABOUT
THE IMPORTANCE
OF KEEPING NUMBERS IN ORDER.
AND I'LL SEE YOU AFTER.

Olive says MY NAME IS AGENT OLIVE.
THIS IS MY PARTNER,
AGENT OTTO.
THIS IS MY FRIEND'S LAMP.
BUT BACK TO OTTO AND ME.
WE WORK FOR AN ORGANIZATION
RUN BY KIDS
THAT INVESTIGATES
ANYTHING STRANGE,
WEIRD,
AND ESPECIALLY ODD.
OUR JOB IS TO PUT THINGS
RIGHT AGAIN.
(IMITATING WHOOSHING)
(THEME MUSIC PLAYING)
WHO DO WE WORK FOR?
WE WORK FOR ODD SQUAD.

The name of the episode reads "The Jackies."

In a basketball court, a man says THANKS FOR COMIN',
ODD SQUAD.

Olive says WHAT SEEMS TO BE
THE PROBLEM, SIR?

The man says WELL, MY BASKETBALL,
IT'S...
IT'S ACTING STRANGE.

Otto says LOOKS FINE TO ME.

The man says WELL, YEAH. THAT'S
EXACTLY WHAT I THOUGHT
BUT EVERY TIME
I BOUNCE IT...

As the man bounces the basketball, it turns into a soccer ball.

Otto says AWESOME!

The man says LOOK.

He bounces it again and it turns into a volleyball.

Otto says WHOA!

The man says LOOK.

Olive takes away the ball and gives him her oen.

She says HERE.
USE THIS ONE INSTEAD.

The man says THANKS.

Olive says WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO
WITH THIS BALL?

Otto says WELL, I SAY WE
BOUNCE IT ONE MORE TIME
AND WE PLAY WITH THE NEXT
BALL THAT POPS UP.

Olive says DEAL.
(EXHALING)

As Otto bounces it, the ball turns into a pizza box.

Olive says WHAT?

Otto says OR WE COULD EAT LUNCH!

Olive says HMM.
WORKS FOR ME.

Back at the headquarters, they walk in Miss O's office.

Olive says YOU WANT TO SEE IS,
MS. O?

Otto says YEAH, WHAT'S UP?

Miss O says EVERYTHING'S UP!
TONIGHT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT
NIGHT OF THE YEAR!

Otto says IS IT ALREADY
BLUE LEG NIGHT?
ON IT!

He shows her his blue tights under his pants.

Miss O says OKAY. FIRST,
THAT'S NOT A THING.
SECOND, I'M TALKING
ABOUT THE JACKIE AWARDS.

Otto says RIGHT!
WHAT ARE THOSE AGAIN?

Olive says IT'S WHEN WE COMPETE
WITH ALL THE OTHER
ODD SQUAD HEADQUARTERS
ALL OVER THE WORLD
FOR THE JACKALOPE AWARDS.

Miss O says IT'S GIVEN TO THE SQUAD
THAT HAS THE MOST
CASES SOLVED EVERY YEAR!

Otto says COOL!
SO, WHERE DO WE...

Olive says DON'T!

Otto says I JUST WANTED TO KNOW...

Olive says STOP, DON'T...

Otto says WHERE DO WE KEEP
OUR JACKIE AWARD?

Miss O growls.

Olive says WE'VE NEVER WON, OTTO.

Otto says SERIOUSLY?

Miss O says YES!
EVERY YEAR WE LOSE
TO MR. O AND HIS SQUAD!
THEY WORK
IN THE NEXT TOWN OVER.
HERE HE IS AT
THE JACKIES LAST YEAR...

She shows them some pictures on a screen.

(BEEPING)

Miss O says AND THE YEAR BEFORE THAT...
AND HERE HE IS IN 1633.

Otto says HOW OLD ARE YOU GUYS?!

Miss O says THAT'S NOT IMPORTANT!
MR. O
HAS SOLVED 100 CASES
AND WE'VE ONLY SOLVED 98.

Otto says WHAT'S THAT WEIRD
ARROW THINGY
BETWEEN YOU AND MR. O?

Miss O says OLIVE WAS GETTING TO THAT.

Olive says IT'S A GREATER THAN
LESS THAN SYMBOL.
WHICHEVER WAY THE OPEN SIDE
OF THE MOUTH FACES
IS THE BIGGER NUMBER.
SO, MR. O'S 100
IS BIGGER THAN OUR 98.
WE NEED TO BE
GREATER THAN 100,
SO WE NEED TO GET
AT LEAST 101.

Miss O says WHICH MEANS
THREE MORE CASES SOLVED.
OREN, OLAF, AND OCTAVIA
ARE OUT LOOKING
FOR ODD STUFF.
I WANT YOU OUT THERE TOO.
WANNA KNOW THE BEST PART
ABOUT WINNING THE JACKIE?
THE WINNER FROM LAST YEAR HAS TO
ANNOUNCE THIS YEAR'S WINNER.
I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE
THE LOOK ON MR. O'S FACE.
(LAUGHING)

Otto says IS SHE GONNA
STOP LAUGHING?

Olive says BACK OUT OF THE ROOM
SLOWLY.
(LAUGHING CONTINUING)

They run out of the office.

Miss O says OSCAR!
HOW'S MY DRESS LOOKING?

Oscar the tailor says UH...
SPARKLY!

Miss O says I WANT IT VERY SPARKLY!

Oscar says WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

Miss O says YOU'LL KNOW IT
WHEN YOU'VE SEEN IT.
(LAUGHING)

In the park, Otto says WHO WOULD'VE THOUGHT LOOKING
FOR ODD WOULD BE SO TOUGH?

Olive says YEAH, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT'S
USUALLY SO BUSY FINDING US.
WAIT.
OTTO, LOOK!

They spot two identical women walking toward them.

Otto says THEY'RE EXACTLY THE SAME!
THEY MUST HAVE A CASE
OF THE DOUBLES.

Olive says IF THAT'S NOT ODD,
THEN I DON'T KNOW
WHAT IS.
MA'AM, PLEASE PUT ON
THIS HELMET.

Otto says IT WILL FIX
YOUR DOUBLES.

Kailey says WHOA, WHOA. DOUBLES?
I DON'T HAVE DOUBLES.
THIS IS MY
IDENTICAL TWIN HAILEY.
I'M KAILEY.
BOTH OUR MIDDLE NAMES
ARE BOB. LONG STORY.

Otto says ARE WE EVER GONNA
FIND SOMETHING ODD?
(SIGHING)

Kailey says OH. IF YOU'RE
LOOKING FOR ODD,
HAILEY HAS LOBSTER HANDS.

Olive says YOU HAVE ACUTE LOBSTERITIS!
THAT'S AN ODD PROBLEM.

Otto says AND I HAVE
AN UNCLAWINATOR.
MS. O,

On the phone, Olive says WE FOUND LOBSTER HANDS.

Miss O says NICE WORK, TEAM.
I'M LOOKING AT THE OFFICIAL
STANDINGS RIGHT NOW.
MR. O'S AT 100,
AND WE'RE AT 99.
THAT MEANS WE ONLY NEED
TWO MORE SOLVED CASES
TO BE GREATER THAN HIM.
KEEP SEARCHING FOR ODD.

Oscar says HOW'S THIS FOR SPARKLY?
(CHUCKLING)

Miss O says HMM.
NOW THAT I SEE IT,
I THINK WE NEED TWINKLY,
NOT SPARKLY.

Oscar says WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN?
MS. O,

Octavia comes in and says I GOT SOMETHING.
IT'S HEAVIER THAN
MOST CANTALOUPES, AND...

Miss O says THAT'S NOT ODD,
OCTAVIA!

Octavia says BUT, MS. O...

Miss O says BUT NOTHING!
GET OUT THERE
AND FIND SOME ODD!
(PHONE RINGING)

Miss O says GO FOR O.

Another agent says GREAT NEWS, MS. O.
WE FOUND A FLOATER.

A man floats in the air.

Olaf says YAY!

Miss O says EXCELLENT WORK.
FIX IT AND THAT'S
ONE MORE CASE SOLVED.

The agent says OLAF, ZAP HIM.
(ZAPPING)

Olaf zaps the man and he falls on the ground.

(GRUNTING)
(THUDDING)

The agent says OLAF,
YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO
PUT A MATTRESS DOWN.

Olaf says BOO!

Miss O says THE SCORE'S EQUAL!
WE'RE TIED!
THAT MEANS WE ONLY NEED
ONE MORE CASE TO WIN!
WE'RE SO CLOSE TO THAT JACKIE,
I CAN TASTE IT.
(SLURPING NOISES)
(PHONE RINGING)

Miss O says THAT MUST BE MR. O CALLING
TO TELL ME HOW WORRIED HE IS.

Mister O says I BET YOU THINK I'M CALLING
TO TELL YOU HOW WORRIED I AM.

Miss O says I KNOW THAT'S WHY YOU'RE
CALLING, ORVILLE.
TAKE ANOTHER LOOK
AT YOUR MONITOR.
(GASPING)
(GASPING)

Oscar says THE SYMBOL CHANGED AGAIN.
MR. O'S 101
IS GREATER THAN OUR 100.

Miss O says IT'S ONLY UP BY ONE.
PHEW!

Mister O says LOOK AGAIN.
(QUICK BEEPING)
(GASPING)

The counter goes up to 150.

(SNICKERING THROUGH PHONE)

Mister O says OPRAH, OPRAH.
DID YOU REALLY THINK
I WOULD LET YOU WIN SO EASILY?
(GROWLING)

Mister O says I GUESS I'LL BE HANDING THAT
JACKIE AWARD TO MYSELF AGAIN.
(LAUGHING)

Mister O says I HAVEN'T FELT THIS GOOD
SINCE THE FIRST TIME I WAS
VICTORIOUS IN YEAR ONE.
(LAUGHING MANIACALLY)

He strokes his trophy and laughs hysterically.

(LAUGHING)
(DIAL TONE)

Miss O says ATTENTION, ALL AGENTS.
REPORT TO THE FIELD
IMMEDIATELY!
GO!
OSCAR, JUICE ME!

Oscar says SURE THING, MA'AM.

He knocks on a painting on the wall and the painting flips and shows a juice box display.

Oscar tosses Miss O a juice box.

Octavia says MS. O!
I GOT A PINEAPPLE!

Miss O says I DON'T NEED
A PINEAPPLE!

Octavia says BUT MS. O...

Miss O says GET OUT THERE AND BRING ME
SOMETHING ODD!

Octavia storms out.

Miss O says KIDS THESE DAYS.

Oscar says TELL ME ABOUT IT.

The agents find lots of odd things at the park. A man with watering his bush head, flying fish, and a portal.

The numbers go up for Miss O in the counter.

Miss O says I CAN'T LOOK.
OSCAR, HOW ARE WE DOING?

Oscar says THE MOUTH OF THE SYMBOL'S
STILL FACING
TOWARDS MR. O'S NUMBER.

Miss O says IT'S NO USE.
THE JACKIES
ARE ABOUT TO START.
GOOD TRY, EVERYONE.

An agent says WE ONLY NEED FIVE MORE
SOLVED CASES TO BEAT HIM.
201, 202,
203, 204, 205.

Octavia runs in and says MS. O! MS. O!
OKAY!
I GOT-- I GOT A COCONUT,
I GOT A MANGO,
AND I GOT A PEACH!

Miss O says OCTAVIA, WHY DO YOU KEEP
BRINGING ME FOOD?!

The coconut says YEAH, SERIOUSLY.
WHAT AM I EVEN DOING HERE?

Miss O says DID THAT COCONUT
JUST TALK TO ME?

Octavia says YES!
MS. O, THAT'S WHAT I'VE BEEN
TRYING TO TELL YOU!
ALL THESE FRUIT...
THEY ALL TALK!

The melon says YOU GOT US.

The coconut says YEP!

The pineapple says BUSTED.

The mango says TRUE DAT.

The peach says TRUE DAT.

Miss O says WAIT A MINUTE.
THAT'S ONE,
TWO, THREE, FOUR,
FIVE ODD CASES.
AND WE NEED
FIVE CASES TO WIN.
WHO'S GOT GADGETS?
FIRE!
(ZAPPING)

All the agents zap the fruit.

Oscar say THEY'RE BACK TO NORMAL!
AND LOOK!
(BEEPING QUICKLY)

The count ends 205 to Miss O and 204 to Mister O.

(CHEERING)

Miss O says WE DID IT!
(ALL CHANTING)

The agents chant WE WON A JACKIE!
WE WON A JACKIE!

At the ceremony, Mister O says AND THE WINNER OF THIS YEAR'S
JACKIE AWARD IS...
(SIGHING)

Mister O says MS. O.
(APPLAUSE)
(CEREMONY MUSIC PLAYING)

Miss O grunts as she struggles to get the trophy off Mister O's hands.

(GRUNTING)

Miss O says THANK YOU, ORVILLE.
FIRST OF ALL,
I'D LIKE TO THANK
MY AGENTS.
I COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT
WITHOUT THEM.
I'D ALSO LIKE TO EXTEND
A VERY SPECIAL THANKS TO OSCAR.
THAT'S ME!

Oscar says SHE SAID MY NAME!

Miss O says FOR HELPING ME
WITH THIS DRESS.
(APPLAUSE)

She takes the dress off, uncovering another underneath.

She says AND THIS ONE.
AND THIS ONE.
(APPLAUSE)

Miss O says THERE'S 300 MORE
UNDER HERE.

Oscar says 302.

Miss O says AND THIS ONE!

Oscar says NOW, THAT'S WHAT
YOU CALL SPARKLES.
(APPLAUSE CONTINUES)

A caption reads "Welcome to headquarters. The North Control Room."

Oscar says GREETINGS, AGENTS.
HERE IN THE NORTH
CONTROL ROOM,
A GROUP OF HIGHLY
SKILLED TECHNICIANS
LOOK FOR ODD ACTIVITY
AROUND TOWN.
LIKE THESE TREES
WITH NO TRUNKS,
AND THIS TRUNK
WITH NO ELEPHANT.
WITH SO MUCH ODD ACTIVITY,
IT REALLY HELPS
TO KEEP TRACK
OF THE CASES THAT ARE SOLVED
AND UNSOLVED.
RIGHT NOW, THERE ARE
EIGHT UNSOLVED CASES,
AND SIX SOLVED CASES.
SO THAT MEANS
THE UNSOLVED CASES
ARE GREATER
THAN THE SOLVED CASES.
I LIKE TO THINK OF THE
GREATER THAN LESS THAN SYMBOL
AS A HUNGRY ALLIGATOR
THAT ALWAYS OPENS UP ITS MOUTH
AT THE GREATER NUMBER.

He plays with a puppet alligator and says CHOMP, CHOMP, CHOMP!
CHOMP, CHO...
I WAS JUST
SHOWING THEM THE, UH,
THING.
(NERVOUS CHUCKLING)

Oscar says MAN, TIME FLIES
WHEN YOU'RE SOLVING CASES.
TAKE A LOOK AT THIS.
THE SYMBOL TURNED AROUND.
THAT'S BECAUSE
ONE UNSOLVED CASE
IS LESS THAN
458 SOLVED CASES.
AND IT STILL OPENS UP ITS MOUTH
TO THE GREATER NUMBER,
LIKE AN ALLIGATOR!
HA-HA!
HEYA, WHAT'S THAT
LAST UNSOLVED CASE?

Heya whispers in his ear.

(WHISPERING)

Oscar says THIS?
OH, THIS IS JUST A PUPPET.
I CAN TAKE IT OFF
ANYTIME I WANT.
WHAT?
HOW DEEP
DOES THIS THING GO?
AND NOW,
AN OFFICIAL MESSAGE FROM MS. O!

Miss O says HAS SOMETHING ODD HAPPENED TO
YOU AT HOME OR IN YOUR SCHOOL?
HAVE YOU TURNED INVISIBLE
OR BEGUN WALKING ON THE CEILING?
ARE THINGS REPEATING THEMSELVES
OVER AND OVER AGAIN?
ARE THINGS REPEATING THEMSELVES
OVER AND OVER AGAIN?
IF SO, ODD SQUAD CAN HELP.
CALL US TODAY!
OUR AGENTS ARE STANDING BY.
(PHONES RINGING)
OR SITTING.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
JUST GO TO THE WEBSITE.
TVOKIDS.COM.

Music plays as the end credits roll.

Joel says WE'RE GONNA USE
TWO OF THE MATH WORDS
WE HEARD IN THAT
ODD SQUAD
EPISODE
TO PLAY
A REALLY FUN MATH GAME
TO HELP US THINKING ABOUT
HOW WE CAN PUT NUMBERS IN...
ORDER!
WE'RE GONNA THINK ABOUT GOING
FROM LEAST TO GREATEST.
THOSE ARE WORDS WE HEARD
IN THAT EPISODE.
LEAST- SMALLER NUMBERS,
GREATEST- BIGGER NUMBERS.
FROM LEAST TO GREATEST.
NOW, WHAT YOU CAN DO
AT HOME TO PLAY THIS GAME
IS CUT UP PIECES OF PAPER.
YOU'LL SEE ME,
I'M USING STICKY NOTES.
IF YOU HAVE THOSE AT HOME,
YOU CAN ALSO USE IT.
CUT UP SOME PAPER,
USE STICKY NOTES,
DO WHATEVER WORKS FOR YOU,
BUT ON THOSE PIECES OF PAPER,
YOU'RE GONNA WRITE NUMBERS
FROM ONE UP TO A NUMBER
OF YOUR CHOOSING.
OKAY?
YOU CAN ALSO CHOOSE THE PATTERN
YOU WANNA COUNT WITH.
MAYBE YOU'LL DO
NUMBERS BY TWOS,
OR BY FIVES,
OR BY ONES. OKAY?
THEN YOU'RE GONNA
SHUFFLE THEM UP,
AND THE PERSON
YOU'RE PLAYING WITH
IS GOING TO TURN OVER THE CARDS
OR STICKY NOTES ONE AT A TIME
AND THEIR JOB IS TO ORDER THEM
FROM LEAST TO GREATEST.
SHOULD WE TRY IT TOGETHER?
OKAY, THE FIRST ONE I PICKED
IS THE NUMBER...TEN!
NOW, I DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT
OTHER NUMBERS I'M GONNA PICK,
SO I'M GONNA PUT TEN,
YOU KNOW, KINDA HERE.
AND IF YOU'RE PLAYING
WITH CARDS
YOU CAN DO IT ON A TABLE
OR THE FLOOR.
NEXT, I'VE GOT
THE NUMBER...FOUR.
NOW, WE'VE GOTTA
KEEP THEM IN ORDER.
IS FOUR LESS THAN TEN
OR IS IT GREATER THAN TEN?
FOUR IS LESS THAN TEN,
SO I'M GONNA MAKE SURE I PUT IT
CLOSER TO THIS SIDE.
READY FOR THE NEXT NUMBER?
I'VE GOT...12.
HMM. LOOKING AT THE NUMBERS
ON MY BOARD,
IS 12 GREATER
OR LESS THAN THESE NUMBERS?
12 IS GREATER,
SO IT'S GONNA END UP OVER HERE.
I CAN START TO SEE
HOW THIS IS GOING,
SO I'M GONNA SHIFT
THIS TEN OVER A BIT.
ALL RIGHT.
NEXT I'VE GOT...
THE NUMBER EIGHT.
NOW, THIS IS INTERESTING.
LOOK AT THE NUMBERS I'VE GOT.
I KNOW THAT EIGHT
IS GREATER THAN FOUR,
BUT IT'S LESS THAN TEN,
WHICH MEANS WHEN I'M PUTTING
THESE NUMBERS IN ORDER,
IT'S GONNA END UP THERE.

He puts the 8 closer to the ten than to the 4.

He says ALL RIGHT.
I'VE GOT THE NUMBER TWO!
NOW, THIS IS INTERESTING.
THE NUMBER TWO IS LESS
THAN ALL OF THESE NUMBERS.
SO IF WE'RE PUTTING IT
IN ORDER,
IT'S ACTUALLY GONNA
COME...FIRST.
ALL RIGHT,
I'VE ONLY GOT ONE LEFT.
YOU MIGHT KNOW WHAT'S COMING.
TWO, FOUR, MMM, EIGHT,
TEN, TWELVE.
THE NUMBER SIX.
AS YOU CAN SEE, I'M COUNTING
IN ORDER FROM LEAST TO GREATEST.
AND I CHOSE TO WRITE
MY NUMBERS BY TWOS.
BUT IF YOU'RE PLAYING
THIS COUNTING GAME AT HOME,
YOU CAN WRITE YOUR NUMBERS
BY ONES-
ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR, FIVE,
ALL THE WAY UP TO 20,
ALL THE WAY UP TO 30,
WRITE THEM ON CARDS,
MIX THEM UP,
AND TOGETHER WITH A FRIEND
OR A FAMILY MEMBER
OR EVEN ON YOUR OWN,
YOU CAN FLIP THE CARDS OVER
AND MAKE SURE YOU PUT
YOUR NUMBERS IN ORDER
FROM LEAST TO GREATEST.
I'VE TOLD YOU A FEW TIMES NOW,
THE BIG IDEA IS ORDER.
O-O-ORDER.
ORDER STARTS
WITH THE LETTER O.
SO TOGETHER,
LET'S CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO
ALL ABOUT THE LETTER O
AND SEE HOW MANY WORDS WE CAN
COME UP WITH LIKE "ORDER,"
THAT START WITH THE LETTER O.

Logo: TVO Kids.

Logo: Goddard Brown.

A caption reads "ABC singsong, by Warren Brown and Adam Goddard."

An animated character says ABOUT THE LETTER O!

He sings a song that says OH, OH, OH, COME ON
TELL ME WHAT YOU KNOW
LETTER O, O, O,
TELL ME WHAT YOU KNOW
HERE WE GO!
I KNOW O IS FOR "OSTRICH."
OH, OATMEAL?
I'M HUNGRY
SO I BROUGHT THIS
I KNOW O IS FOR "OTTER."
Mister O says IS FOR "OCTOPUS."
SWIMMING IN THE WATER
Mister O says IS FOR "OKAY,"
WE'RE ROCKIN' LETTER O TODAY
Mister O says IS FOR "OH, NO! I THINK
I GREW A GIANT TOE!"
OH, OH, OH, COME ON
TELL ME WHAT YOU KNOW
LETTER O, O, O,
TELL ME WHAT YOU KNOW
I KNOW IT'S A CIRCLE
WITH A HOLE IN THE MIDDLE
IT COULD BE BIG
IT COULD BE LITTLE
Mister O says IS FOR "OWL,"
FLAPPING ITS WINGS
Mister O says FOR "ORANGUTAN,"
WHO ALSO CAN SING!

An animated orangutan sings OH, OH, OH,
OH-OH-OH-OH-OH-OH

The song continues LETTER O, O, O,
TELL US WHAT YOU KNOW
HERE WE GO!
Mister O says IS FOR "OVER."

Joel says THAT VIDEO WAS A LOT OF FUN.
CAN YOU THINK
OF MORE O WORDS?
NOW, THE O WORD THAT WE SPENT
ALL OF TODAY TALKING ABOUT
IS "ORDER."
THE IMPORTANCE
OF PUTTING THINGS IN ORDER.
AND WE TALKED ABOUT
HOW THIS IS IMPORTANT
WHEN WE'RE FOLLOWING STEPS.
AND I GAVE YOU THE CHALLENGE
AT HOME TO WRITE OUT YOUR LIST-
THE STEPS YOU FOLLOW FOR
SOMETHING YOU DO EVERY DAY.
AND REMEMBER,
LIKE MY CHEESE AND CRACKERS,
MAKE SURE YOU'RE NOT
MISSING ANY STEPS
AND THEY'RE IN
THE RIGHT ORDER.
HAVE FUN WITH THAT ONE.
ANOTHER PIECE OF LEARNING
THAT WE CAN DO
IS WRITING OUR OWN STORY.
AND AS I TOLD YOU TODAY,
ORDER IS SO IMPORTANT
WHEN WE'RE WRITING STORIES.
YOU'VE GOTTA HAVE A BEGINNING,
MIDDLE, AND END.
AND THE LAST THING WE DID
TOGETHER WAS A FUN MATH GAME,
WHERE WE FLIPPED OVER
CARDS WITH NUMBERS
AND PUT THEM IN ORDER
FROM LEAST TO GREATEST.
AS YOU CAN SEE,
ORDER IS SO IMPORTANT
IN ALL TYPES OF LEARNING.
SO, I HOPE YOU HAD FUN LEARNING
ABOUT ORDER WITH ME TODAY.
I HOPE YOU HAVE
SOME GREAT IDEAS
FOR MORE LEARNING
YOU CAN DO AT HOME,
AND THE LAST THING
I WANNA SAY TO YOU IS THIS!

He shows his board with a word with the letters in the wrong order.

Joel says WAIT A SECOND.
I'VE WRITTEN ALL THE LETTERS
FOR MY LAST MESSAGE TO YOU,
BUT THEY'RE NOT IN
THE RIGHT ORDER.
NOW, THIS IS A FUN GAME
YOU CAN PLAY AT HOME
WITH YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
WRITE A WORD
BUT SCRAMBLE UP THE LETTERS,
PUT THEM IN THE WRONG ORDER,
AND SEE IF YOU CAN GUESS
WHAT WORD IT IS.
ANY GUESSES?
I'M GONNA PUT MY LETTERS
IN THE RIGHT ORDER.
ME MESSAGE TO YOU IS... .GOODBYE!
AND THANKS FOR ANOTHER
FUN HOUR TOGETHER
HERE ON
TVOKIDS POWER HOUR
OF LEARNING.
MY NAME IS TEACHER JOEL.
I'VE HAD A LOT OF FUN
LEARNING WITH YOU TODAY.
I HOPE YOU HAD FUN,
LEARNED SOME NEW THINGS,
AND I WILL SEE YOU NEXT TIME.
