The Young Minds series from Math Tutor DVD was created to introduce young children to the joys of learning math at an early age.
Young Minds - Numbers and Counting is over a half hour long and uses beautiful real life pictures and classical music to teach children to count from 1 to 10. It also teaches such things as animal names and sounds, fruit and vegetable names and colors, and machinery names and sounds. In the background is music by Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Vivaldi, Brahms, Pachelbel, and Chopin. This integrated learning approach is to keep children interested and promote continued learning.
Extra Features include Puzzles (using real photographs), Connect the Dots, and Guess the Animal.
This video is very engaging, well done, and a pleasure to watch. It does teach numbers by counting each item in a group individually. So for those of us who teach our children to recognize numbers in a group by sight instead of by counting, it will be better utilized once our little ones reach the counting stage. I am very impressed with the professional presentation and would feel comfortable in recommending its quality to anyone.
I will also be doing a review on one of Math Tutor DVD's numerous other math products.
