Meet some words!


Meet the Sight Words collections of DVDs is a new approach in teaching children basic word recognition!

It's exactly what it sounds to be.. a method of teaching basic english words through sight. Sight words are the small words that are really the building blocks of our language that as adults we take for granted. Such as : I, of, it, he, you, in, to, a, is, the... ect. If you combine them with other small sight words you get small sentences such as "I play""you have" which may seem like broken english to you but it may just be your child's first written simple sentence.

Meet the Sight Words teaches these simple words in a way I have never seen before. Its totally animated and the words start off as animated characters and turn into the words. It's basically a way to get a child's attention then show them the word you really want them to see. It's quite frankly brilliant. Even Connor loves to stare at the words and though I don't expect him to be writing small sentences yet it may just be our first building block to doing so!

Meet the Sight Words collection comes in three DVDs which build on each other or can be used separately. They teach about 15 words each which means if you really dedicated a bit of your time each week to the DVDs your child could potentially learn 45 words before kindergarten even starts! Sign me up for the other DVDs please!

Meet the Sight Words is available on Amazon!

Update : I have one copy of Meet the Sight Words (all three titles in the series) to give away to my readers!

My son would benefit from this tremendously. He is 14 months old and loves to "read" it would be great to use this to help him recognize words.

I have also subscribe to your feed.

MMrussianadoption said...

I just know this would be perfect for my son who is 3 1/2. He has a mind like a sponge. He already knows most of his letters and this will put him over the top.

Kristie said...

Andrea said...

I think my son would benefit from these the most. He's just now 3 and I think these would be great helpers for preschool and kindergarten. Thanks for the chance to win.

The Downtown Boutique said...

I actually have a 14 year old who would benefit from these DVDs. He had 5 strokes when he was 2-1/2 years old, and he has had speech problems since then. He doesn't "get" phonics, so maybe seeing something visually would help him out.

I also have an almost 21 month old who would benefit from these. He doesn't say much yet, so this would be a fun way for him to start learning to form words.

Thanks!
Angie

arbrashears said...

What a great idea! These would be fabulous for my daughter that is in pre-school. She is learning all of her letter sounds and can recognize them - so this would be a perfect next step! Thanks for the chance to win!

Lisa Knight said...

My DD and the twins I babysit would benefit greatly from these DVDs. She is 4 and entering pre-K in the fall, the twins are going to be 9 and read very little, they are in special Ed classes.

Princess Golden Hair said...

lily because she has recently become interested in becoming a reader.

Julie said...

My son is 21 months old, Emery, and has yet to do much talking. I think this would be one way to help him pay attention to words even if he won't be writing for a while!

ArkieRN said...

My 7 month old granddaughter would enjoy watching these while she's over at Mimi's house. And I would love to start her on educational videos.

Stacy said...

My 3-year-old niece would LOVE this! She "reads" to her mommy all the time and she soaks up everything like a sponge. She's the perfect age to start learning sight words!

Patterson said...

My one-year-old daughter would be watching these DVDs. I strongly believe in knowing how to read and write all the basic sight words. Kindergarten teachers would love if students came to them already knowing this!

Faigy Topp said...

My son is now almost 2½. My daughter is 6 months.
My son loves books, and already knows some of the alphabet. He makes me read to him all day long.
As a teacher, I know how important it is to be able to read sight words. It could be quite challenging for some children, and I'm sure this would make a big difference.
My children would definitely gain from this!

Millie said...

Oh this would be great for my two sons! I have a 6 year old son who had a 108 fever when he was 2 which caused him to be alittle delayed and a 3 year old son who is just learning these things! This would be great! Thank you so much for this chance!

kevnjacks said...

This would be great for my 4 y.o. who just started "dabbling" in reading. I think teaching him sight words will give him the encouragement he needs to get really excited about reading! :)

Nancy Murphy said...

This is perfect for my girls to help enforce those words that they have been learning to read! I had never heard of this series. I am sure it would make learning fun!

janetfaye said...

These would benefit my toddler grandson.

He has the vocabulary of a 4 year old and he knows the alphabet.

He loves books and I think that these would propel him into the first steps of reading.


Thank you!

This would be wonderful for my granddaughter. She is 19 months old and loves to go around saying O! at every round shape. Unfortunately this includes her new potty chair much to the chagrin of her mommy. LOL

chris said...

my son is three and is not speaking very clearly - he is currently being evaluated by the school district but this would give me something to work with him on!! What an awesome birthday gift for him - he turns 3 on the 15th

Heather said...

Hello, my oldest is just going to start K in Sept and he is not very interested in learning to read so far and I fear he will have a tough time so anything that can make things easier for him sounds GREAT! I think this would be a painless and fun way for him to get a little extra help.

Heather said...

This would be great to use with my 2 year old daughter. MY 5 year old will be starting school this year and this would make her feel that she is going to her own "school".

danni said...

my son is turning 3 in a couple of weeks. he just started writing his letters and spells words and then asks what they say. this would be a great teaching aid, especially since my time is limited with him since i also have a 10 month old.

My preschool aged son would really benefit from this. And it would be a fun thing to show his playgroup when it's my turn to host. Education and entertainment at the same time is always a plus.

Thanks for the fun giveaways!

My five year old daughter is fighting the idea of reading. She really is smart but fights every attempt to read. Very frustrating

Amy said...

My 3 year old daughter would benefit from this. She is at the right age to begin this.

Greywolf73 said...

My 8 year old son who is autistic and very resistant to learning how to read would benefit greatly from this dvd set. He's a very visual learner and is also obsessed with collecting dvds so this is perfect!

I think that my God-son would benefit from this the most. He's not yet in Kindergarden yet he loves to "read!" He's obviously very interested in books and in language, and I feel that it's so important to nuture this curiosity. This product sounds like such a wonderful way to do just that!!! Plus, he just had TWO new sisters join his family as his mommy just had twin baby girls! He would be able to watch these DVD's with or without a parent so he would still be learning even if his mom and dad are busy with his sisters!!

Thanks!
