Best of Series: Mrs. Wishy-Washy in the Classroom and on YouTube

Editor's Note: This blog was previously published, we're re-sharing it as part of our 'Best of' series, a look back at some of our most popular blogs.


Mrs. Wishy-Washy seems to pop up everywhere, including on YouTube!

In today's video spotlight, she visits a lucky classroom to help the teacher add a whole new dimension to a reading of Mrs. Wishy-Washy. Watch how she complements the group reading through her pantomime, but leaves the interpretation to the teacher and the kids. The laughter is contagious, and the children are giggling as they request to be scrubbed by the famous Mrs. Wishy-Washy! What a great way to make teaching interactive and extra fun! Check it out below!


Given that YouTube is the TV of today, how could we not resist reminding everyone of this clever title by Joy Cowley titled: Mrs. Wishy-Washy on TV!


Check out this video of Joy Cowley discussing the inspiration for her most popular characters, including Mrs. Wishy-Washy!
