I have been so excited for this giveaway. In fact I am so thrilled about these products that I personally contacted Two Little Hands Productions to see if they would be willing to provide their incredible work to a lucky reader! They agreed, and you can enter the giveaway at the bottom by commenting.
I also want to let you know about the sale going on at Signing Time. Thank you for supporting Preschool Inspirations by purchasing through these links (or the banner on the left of the screen):
The Signing Time series has been a huge hit in our home and my preschool classroom. When I found out that there was a preschool series in the making, I was over the moon. If you haven’t heard of it already, it is called Rachel and the TreeSchoolers. There are three different DVDs available: A Rainy Day, Plants and Flowers, Incredible Insects. From the first time my own kids saw this, they have been begging to keep watching it. That’s a such a good feeling for me as a mom and a teacher.
As a mom I consider these DVDs to be “guilt free” TV for my kids. There are days as parents that we just need a half hour, whether it’s to cook dinner, get ready in the morning, do some cleaning, enjoy a latte and read a couple chapters in a book, etc. These DVDs are in my “bag of tricks” when I need one of these moments. I love that I don’t have to ever worry about what might pop up on the screen while my kids are watching. I have had to screen so many television shows lately because children’s programming definitely contains less than desireable content nowadays…even if it’s just a child who whines through the entire show. Every time I have watched any of the episodes from Signing Time and Rachel and the TreeSchoolers, I am more than thrilled that it doesn’t have anything that I would not be comfortable with my children seeing…plus it’s teaching my children at the same time. As a parent, I even enjoy watching the work of Two Little Hands, and I have learned so much myself.
As a teacher I give a “two thumbs up” approval for the Rachel and the TreeSchoolers series. It seems that so many educational programs have the “good vs. evil” theme going, and I am definitely not a fan of those. Why can’t children just learn and enjoy the entire show?! Well thanks to Rachel and the TreeSchoolers, there is another wonderful option out there. I love how they beautifully combine music, signing, games, animation, as well as real pictures of nature. These are definitely an appropriate and educational visual supplement to a classroom during a weather, planting, or insect theme.
