Hi all, can anyone recommend some good educational videos? I was thinking along the lines of learning abc's etc and also french for complete beginners.
DS is only 2.1 but has picked up soooo much from a Makaton video we have that I'm sure if I had a fun abc or french video he'd start to pick them up to. He already knows 2/3 of the alphabet to look at (boastful mum alert!) so I'm keen to nurture this new found love!
Thanks stacijc. I have seen loads on amazon but I have no idea which ones are actually good ones. Also, whether to go for a known character or one more obscure that's just been made up for that particular video iykwim! I wasn't sure if the character ones are just out to make money and aren't really that good??
When I was on holiday, a little boy won a compotition. His name was Euan, and when he was asked how to spell it he repplied very clearly eh, oo, a, nnnn (jolly phonics style). Was hillarious, everyone who had children understood, felt sorry for the 18 year old red entertainer.
Hi sweetheart, thanks for the info. Next time I'm near ELC I'll take a look, but if you feel like posting and have the time it would be good to know a few of the actions (but only if you have the time!!)
If you want a language video I would recommend the bilingual baby series. (American) available from Amazon.com. I use the italian one with my dd (1) and she really likes it. They do French and Spanish as well.
