Product Description

Many words don't follow basic decoding rules and are taught in pre-k and kindergarten classrooms as 'sight words', 'instant words', 'high frequency words' or 'star words.' A new reader finds sight words very frustrating until they are memorized. A good reader will be able to instantly recognize sight words without having to 'figure them out.' Preschool Prep Company makes learning sight words fun and easy by implementing the technique used in their other award winning DVDs (Meet the Letters, Meet the Numbers, Meet the Shapes and Meet the Colors). Now childreen can master sight words witht the same rapid speed that they learned letters, numbers, shapes and colors! Preschool Prep DVDs have won over 25 national awards and are used in thousands of schools! You will be amazed at what your little one can learn.

Review

Teachers Pick - Best for learning Sight Words --Scholastic Instructor Magazine

This DVD is an animated teaching tool, not a cartoon show. I'll liken it to freshly squezed juice for a child vs. KoolAid! I am extremely picky about what my children view on any screen and Meet the Sight Words passed with flying colors. --The Old Schoolhouse Magazine

The basic approach of seeing, hearing and repeating is given a fresh look that makes learning easy for pre-readers and struggling beginning readers. A must-have for every collection for young children. --School Library Journal

Well in my opinion, this has to be the worst learning DVD set ever. My 4 year old son cries when I sit him down and make him watch them! After a few times of he and I watching the videos I became bored to tears and understands his frustration. The vidoe doesn't even spell the words for the children, it just jumps across the screen a few times. It is a total waste of money! I wonder if I can get a refund! Leap frog videos are the better choice. I have not seen a sight word DVD collection from them but my son loves their videos and I can tell what he has learned!

I bought these videos for my daughter who is 2 &1/2. They are to basic and slow for her. She gets very bored with them and wanders away. I found the videos boring, myself. My daughter is used to Sesame Street and Leap Frog videos, both of which have stories to them--- and anything on Nick Jr. If your child is younger or hasn't been exposed to much TV then these might work, but if your child is like mine and prefers videos with action and a story line, then don't bother wasting your money on this set! To get the full effect you can go to Starfall.com and have your child watch this. If they like it then you will know that these videos are appropriate. If they lose interest, you'll know not to bother since it is the same kind of learning strategy except Starfall.com teaches the alphabet.

I purchased this product thinking it would be like the Leapfrog videos which have a cute little story to go along with whatever the video is teaching. WRONG! They are very boring and just put the word up on the screen, make a little character out of it, repeat it several times, the character sort of does a little something and then it is on to the next word. It is BORING!!! My 3 yr. old was not impressed and only sat thru maybe 5 words. It did not hold her attention at all! I was hoping for a fun way to teach sight words rather that something montonous like flashcards but this is not much better. I had hoped to play these in the car like I do the Leapfrog videos (which she has mastered and learned all of her letters and their sounds from and well as her numbers and how to count) but she will not watch them. My motto on videos for the car is that the majority of them have to be educational so I had hoped that these would work and give us new videos to watch. Unfortunately I purchased these from Zulily along with a couple of other sets by the same company. I would like to return what I have not opened but Zulily will not accept returns so I am stuck with the crappy product. Hopefully Leapfrog will make a sight word movie soon. They have a couple of other learning to read type of movies but they are a little over her head. Oh well, we will play them anyway!

I originally really liked 'meet the letters', but then when my son began to watch "meet the sight words' , he did retain the information....but what he was learning was incorrect. When he saw the word 'the' he would say..'mommy that says ant' (because the words they are presenting, are represented by a visual of something else, as in, the word 'the' traipsing around as an ant). I found this completely confusing, and it was obviously confusing to my son, who would remember the image of 'what the word was pretending to be', instead of the actual word. I got rid of all these Dvd's.

We LOVE Pre-School Prep products! We first borrowed them from the library, and the kids asked to watch them every day and cried when we had to return them to the library, so we bought them a set for Christmas. My son is 2.5 and my daughter is 4 years old and they both love to watch all the Pre-School Prep DVDs. And I love the fact that they are learning to read while watching these DVDs, I also love that the DVDs are more about learning to read and less about entertaining the children. (Personally I really dis-like Leap Frog and Baby Einstein products for that reason). The DVDs flash the word on the screen and read it for the child, then the word "comes to life" in a cartoon character while the narrator reads the word repeatedly for the children. Its brilliant in it's simplicity and I highly recommend these, in fact we are going to be buying them for our niece in the future.

My son was bored the second I started the DVD. I found this DVD to be slow and not that interesting. It maybe for others, but not for my son and I.

It is like the Chinese water torture treatment except with words instead of water. I highly recommend NOT purchasing this item.

You are better off getting some simple flash cards. My 2 1/2 year old grandson cries and runs from the room when I put one of these dvd's in to play. Leap frog keeps him interested, so its not because its a learning video, I believe its the format. The video dispays a word and then says it, over and over again. Sometimes there is a little animation but its confusing because the animation has nothing to do with the word. Big waste of money. There has to be a better way out there to teach sight words.
