Does anyone else use these DVDs in their classroom?
I use the Meet the Sight Word movies by Preschool Prep EVERYDAY with my preschoolers (during snack time...keeps 'em quieter, AND why not make snack time educational..., and I also play them at the end of the day while we're packing up...again... it keeps the class quieter and gives them a little more practice with the sight words). They.are.amazing! The kids LOVE them! And I LOVE them.
I bought Meet the Sight Words 1 first to try out, and I have to say... at first I thought to myself, man, what a waste of money because the movie says the words over and over, and it just kind of seemed corny, but nonetheless, I decided to try it out with my preschoolers, and I couldn't have been more wrong. Not a waste of money at all! I am so impressed by how many of these words my THREE and FOUR year old classes have picked up from these movies. I now own Meet the Sight Words 1, 2, and 3.
I hope to get a contracted job teaching Kindergarten, and if/when I do, I will play these for my Kindergarten students during their snack time and at the end of the day as well. If you teach preschool or Kindergarten, I HIGHLY recommend these sight word DVDs. Your class will love them and learn from them!
Meet the Numbers, Meet the Letters, Meet the Digraphs, and more are also available and on my list of things to purchase!
