There are times when I feel like I need to let Madelyn watch TV. I try to occupy her through out the day with toys, creative stuff, etc.. but with most of my work needing to be done between 1 and 6pm, I rely on the TV to keep her occupied for an hour or so. However, I hate Sponge Bob and after 3:00 or so, shows are mostly geared for older kids. I try to find the best quality, most educational show on during that time but there is such as a thing as re-runs and just plain yucky educational TV.
I was recently introduced to Young Mind Number and Counting DVD and Madelyn, 3 years old, watched it for the first time today. Her response was adorable and I really enjoyed seeing her reaction and hearing her talk along with and back to the DVD. Here is a short video of Madelyn watching the DVD. I apologize for the sound quality and the camera seems to have zoomed in and out the entire time. Yikes!
MathTutorDVD.com has created the Young Minds series of DVDs to introduce young children to the joys of learning Math at a young age. This DVD in Numbers and Counting teaches young children to count from 1 to 10 by way of engaging classical music, photographs, and video.
Each number is presented with colorful, non-cluttered, large photographs, video, and animation that kept Madelyn’s attention very well. Numbers are animated to fly-in from off screen and show the child how to count by counting objects that they are naturally interested in. Animals such as frogs, horses, jellyfish, sharks, whales, and more are shown to the viewer along with the animal sounds. Colors are also taught by pointing out the color of objects on screen.
DVDs in this area are designed to stimulate young children to take an interest in Math at an early age. The DVD is set to classical music selections from the great composers such as J.S. Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Vivaldi, and others!
The central idea of this video is to teach children numbers and counting while at the same time teaching them the names of animals, machines, and other objects along with their associated sounds and colors. This integrated learning approach keeps children interested and promotes continued learning.
