The TV Teacher
Alphabet Beats is an award winning handwriting program that uses visual, auditory, and a hands on approach. There are memorable chants that the children listen to and learn to help them remember how to write the alphabet.
I was sent a free copy of the UPPER CASE Writing DVD to use and review. I have to be honest, I was not thrilled. I do not like my children to watch a lot of TV and did not really like the name "TV Teacher." I do not sit my kids in front of a computer screen or TV screen for them to learn. So, I did not have my hopes up for this one.
When it came in the mail I put it on and let Julianna, 5yrs, Ben, 9 yrs, and my day care kiddos, Dylan, 4 yrs and Alayna, almost 2yrs, watch it with me. I was surprised the children enjoyed it so much.
On the menu page you can choose any of the 26 uppercase letters of the alphabet to play. (They also have a lower case DVD too). So I let the children randomly choose letters. They got so excited to choose the letters in their names. We had to take turns to choose the next letter!
*(Word of caution! I was extremely disappointed with letter U. It has the lady that teaches the letters wearing a pair of underpants over her regular pants and then talking about underpants and that she should not be wearing them on the outside of her clothes. I really thought this was in poor taste. There are so many other U words to use without an adult wearing and talking about wearing underwear. We will be skipping that letter.)
The TV Teacher also has workbooks to go along with the DVD you can purchase separately.

Price: Each DVD is sold for $35 or if you purchase both it is $64.99.
Other TOS crew members were able to review some of TV Teacher's products check out what they had to say here.
*I received a free DVD to watch, use, and review. My review is my own and I am not compensated for my review.
