Rachel and the TreeSchoolers: A Rainy Day DVD & CD Review
I received Rachel & the TreeSchoolers DVD, Episode 1 A Rainy Day to review, from Tomoson.com and it's a lovely DVD! The episode is about how the TreeSchooler's plan to play outside when lighting and thunder scares them. This DVD teaches about weather, problem solving, word rhyming, storytelling, kindness, courage, and sorting. The DVD is 30 minutes long and also came with a music CD, which I thought was nice. The songs on the CD are written by Rachel Coleman and include Rachel and the TreeSchoolers, I Wonder, The Weather Song, What Makes a Cloud?, Lightning and Thunder, Share It, Rhyming Time and Itsy Bitsy Spider (Never Give Up.) Singing helps young children learn and remember new concepts. I felt the DVD and CD were both excellent for preschool age children and the children seemed to really enjoy both. I feel this is a great beginning to a new preschool curriculum and I would be interested in using other episodes. I actually played the DVD twice back to back per the children's request each time the children watched it.
Have you seen this DvD? What other preschool learning DVDs have you watched?
