My daughter loves to watch tv…probably a little too much! I try to limit her tv time to educational DVDs and shows so that at least while she’s watching, she’s also learning.
That’s why I was really excited to review a brand new DVD from Buckalope Elementary. “Buckalope Elementary” is a puppet show geared for elementary school children (k-3) which promotes character development, career awareness, problem-solving, critical thinking, and above all, motivation. This program is grounded in educational theory and supported by research and over 10 years of personal experience as a teacher and counselor. An important feature of “Buckalope Elementary” is that all lessons conveyed are student-driven, to where kids themselves discover the meaning of the intended lessons and teach one another. In addition, students model good character as they teach others the right thing to do and motivate and support each other. The program has also been praised for its songs, which capture the true essence of each lesson with their catchy lyrics, and memorable melodies.
Although this DVD was geared towards grades K-3, Maggie still really liked it! She loved watching the puppets interact and also loved the music in this DVD. This DVD will introduce your child to careers available to them in a fun, creative way. I also liked that this DVD will help get kids talking about their talents. Every child is unique and therefore has different skills and interests. This would be a great DVD to integrate into your homeschooling curriculum or share with your child’s school.
You can buy this DVD directly from Buckalope Elementary by going to their website at http://buckalopeelementary.com/. It sells for just $9.99 (plus S & H).
