I just wanted to thank you ladies SO much!

Two days ago, I went to target and found the Letter Factory dvd. So far, they have watched it I *think* 9 times,lol.

I'm not even joking, I think she has picked up all the sounds, finally! Just in two days. I think it's the way the dvd related each letter into the song,and relates it to a word. I've walked around all day saying, 'The B says, buh the B says Buh....every letter makes a sound, the B says Buh"

Even my 4 year old son, has picked up most of the sounds. I've been quizzing him al day today, and he's doing amazing! I'm going back to get the word factory, and the math one tomorrow!

The Math circus was a great way to introduce what zero is. Miguel didn't really like any of the other leapfrog dvd's. I'm so glad they like it so much.

Scotty did the same with his letter sounds and Leap Frog. Don't necessarily expect the same on the word factory. It took my little guy a bit to jump from letter factory to word factory and make the connection well. He still watches Complex Words Complex. It has worked too, though, he often remembers "wait" and silent e words when he sees them and I think it has a lot to do with the early exposure to those videos. They are solid GOLD.

Yup. They are amazing DVDs. Word Factory is what got Cameron able to blend (he was a bit older than Rebecca's Scotty).
