"Meet the Sight Words 1" by Preschool Prep co is designed to teach children ages 18months to 6 years high frequency words, or sight words. It features the high frequency words A, and, for, have, he, I, in, is, it, of, play, said, that, the, to, you. It teaches children through colourful animation and repitition.
I purchased this DVD for my son’s birthday and I so far am very impressed. The animation is simplistic and perhaps a little bit cheesy, but very colourful and fun. They have created cute litlle characters out of each word and have animated them. It is complimented with fun music that both my kids love. My son loves it and he is actually learning. He is now starting to recognize some of the sight words. He asks for the DVD constantly and even my 8 year old enjoys the DVD! It also features a convenient flashcard option which reinforces the concept
The menu allows you to play the full DVD or just play 4 or 5 sight words at a time. The theory is that way teachers can use it in the classroom. You also have the choice to use the regular "a" that is taught in the class or the special case "a" that is found in most books.
This is a fantastic DVD and I am planning on purchasing volumns 2 and 3 for my son soon.
