Congrats to my winner: Stephanie
My 4-year-old attends a special preschool during the school year, but right now he's in the middle of his three-month-long summer vacation. Three months is a long time for him to be away from school, so to keep his brain cells from forgetting everything that he learned at school, I'm trying to keep our days full of lots of educational activities. Recently we received a new DVD that's been helping me keep my kids' brains busy, a DVD from Rock 'N Learn called Alphabet. Here's a bit about this DVD, from its website:
Ethan and Vivian have both watched this DVD a number of times, and each time they've sat through the whole thing and have commented on pictures and letters that they recognize. While it's not a DVD that I personally want to sit through too often, the kids seem to be really liking it. The alphabet is presented in a simple way with music and lots of repetition to reinforce the learning. Both uppercase and lowercase letters are shown, which I appreciate. I also like the bonus section a lot where the DVD shows how to print the letters in a very simple fashion. If this DVD doesn't get my kids to learn the alphabet, then I think they may be a lost cause! :)
Children sing along with cool tunes for each letter, play musical games, and learn old and new alphabet songs as they reinforce letter recognition skills, learn letter-sound relationships, and even develop a richer vocabulary. As a special bonus… on the alphabet DVD version, children learn to print each capital and lowercase letter, as well as numbers 0 through 9.
Ages 3–5. DVD version Approx. 42 minutes.
In addition to this DVD, Rock 'N Learn offers a large variety of other books, CDs and DVDs to help your kids learn. Topics covered include reading, math, science and social studies, test taking and other languages, to name a few. There are resources available at Rock 'N Learn for kids ages 2 and up. The site is very easy to search. You can look for what you need by browsing by age or by subject.
