Counting With Elmo~DVD Review

Preschool Is Cool: Counting With Elmo

Elmo and Professor Grover Introduce Children to the Joy of Numbers in the Second DVD Release from Sesame Street’s New Educational Series “Preschool is Cool”

As part of Sesame Street’s new Preschool is Cool set, Counting with Elmo finds Professor Grover as a preschool teacher and Elmo as his helper for today’s counting lesson—in a real preschool! When silly Professor Grover starts to have a little bit of trouble remembering what each number is, he needs Elmo
and the class to give him a helping hand. Featuring counting themed songs stories like “Counting Booth,” and “Abby’s Sparkle Speckle Freckles”, kids will have fun learning with Grover and Elmo and all their Sesame Street friends. Counting with Elmo supports early math skills such as number recognition, counting and enumeration — all which help lay the foundation for math readiness and future math learning. Kids will see their favorite Sesame Street friends practice skip counting by 2s, 5s, and 10s, which helps children understand that a purpose of counting is
to determine the total number of things in an overall set.

Celebrating its impressive 40th anniversary, Sesame Street is the longest-running program in children’s television. The series has received more Emmy awards than any other show in television history, including a Lifetime Achievement Award honoring its 40th year.

This was a perfect video to share with the two little ones I baby sit!

I put it in my laptop and they were immediately hooked on it! They loved the bright loveable characters, catchy music and the fun way of learning. Dustin was immediately counting and having fun! What a great way to entertain little ones and teach them at the same time!
