Math Tutor

Last year I was sent two video’s from Math Tutor. You can see that review here. This year, Math Tutor sent me a Young Minds DVD. This one is called Young Minds: Numbers and Counting.

This is a wonderful video! Think Baby Einstein only better. For those of us that had to live through Barney the Purple Dinosaur, you’ll find this video particularly unfair. This music is actually soothing. If it gets watched eight times in a row every day for a week, you won’t want to go hide in a padded cell. And the pictures are really fantastic.

The background music is Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin, Brahms, and Vivaldi. Ahhhh. No screeching!

They of course concentrate on teaching counting in this video, but also teach about colors, fruits, vegetables, animals. There are puzzles, guessing games and connect the dots included as well.

Personally, I liked this video better that the others I received, but then the others I received were higher math, and higher math makes me twitchy. Counting I’m good with.

This video is a real winner. Need to have a few minutes to concentrate on spelling with an older child? Want to take a shower uninterrupted? This is your DVD! I’m not a proponent of sticking your toddlers in front of the TV all day, but goodness knows sometimes a mama just needs little Jimmy to be still for a minute so she can take a breath. If you’re going to stick little Jimmy in front of the TV, this is just the thing to play for him!

List price is $29.99, but right now you can get it for 30% off at $19.99!

Happy Homeschooling!
