Giveaway & Review: Math Tutor Young Minds Counting DVD (3 Winners) [CLOSED]

I have always been a fan of educational programming and DVDs. They have been a great way to supplement anything I had been working on with my oldest son, whether it was the alphabet, colors, counting, etc . . . Now with the twins, I must rely even more on such tools to reinforce what I try to teach them because it is extremely difficult to get quiet one on one time with each one. This is why I welcomed the chance to try out the new Math Tutor: Young Minds-Numbers and Counting DVD.






What I thought about this Numbers and Counting DVD for toddlers:


1) I like that this DVD uses a variety of objects to illustrate each number. Chances are that there will be something that your child will show an affinity towards. These objects include animals, foods, transportation vehicles, and more.


2) The benefits of this DVD are not limited to learning about numbers and counting to 10. Other concepts taught by this DVD are sounds, colors, and action words.


3) Although my toddlers were most excited when they saw objects that they recognized, I like that the DVD includes things that may be new to a toddler, such as windmills, jellyfish, and asparagus. This just offers more opportunity for learning.


4) In addition to pointing out the things they recognized, my toddlers liked imitating the animal sounds.


5) The classical music in the background included works by Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, and more. Although the music was beautiful, it was secondary to the visual content, which was the only thing holding my toddlers' attention.


6) Because the twins can only count up to 3, every number after 4 lost a little more of their attention. I expect this to change each time we watch the DVD as they become more adept at remembering and recognizing additional numbers.
