This DVD was fun. The kids enjoyed the songs for each letter. As the songs for each letter have about 6 words words that start with that letter so the kids can start to recognize the letter sound. For example; some of the words for A are – Apricot and Astronaut. The songs can be a little repetitive for adults, but that’s what most kids at this stage need. After all 26 letters have had a song there is a section on writing the letters. Not sure how the kids are to interact with this part, but as each letter came up we described how to draw each one. Like, a line and then the little circle is the lower case B. The kids seem to respond to this approach.
Accompanying the DVD is a companion book that reinforces what the DVD and songs were showing the kids. Together they can be a great tool in helping kids learn their letters.
I also received the DVD and companion book for Colors, Shapes and Counting.
“Here is the perfect way to get your child ready for starting school. Young learners will enjoy all of the kindergarten readiness activities, including learning to count objects by color, shape, or a combination of both. Even gifted children will be challenged by the advanced colors (maroon, turquoise) and shapes (polygons, ellipses).”
While this movie was cute and educational it did not hold the kids attention as well. That could be because of our previous Homeschool efforts. The majority of the information on this DVD was review at best for my little ones. They were naming shapes and counting right along still, but they definitely were not as interested in this one over the other. Having said all that, I can see how this could be a great way to introduce or reinforce the concepts of shapes, colors and counting up to 20. They even briefly cover zero, which can be a hard concept for kids to grasp. Overall, both movies would be fine additions to anyone’s educational DVD library.
