Give away on First Grade Fun

Ms. Van Orman is having a Leap Frog DVD giveaway on her blog. Personaly I didn't know Leap Frog made DVD's. Ms. Van Orman says that these DVD's have been helping her ELL kids, which mean that these might be perfect for my students. My students just recently learned to use a Leap Pad and they are likeing it a lot. There are a couple of DVD's, The Letter Factory, The Talking Word Factory 1 & 2 and The Math Circus. Personaly I think I'll like The Talking Words Factory 2: Code Word Caper, the best because it talks about silent letters. Although I think my little ones might like all the videos.

If your interested in them head overto her blog to enter the giveaway.

We don't watch movies often in my class but I am going to look into how much the whole set costs. It would be a nice edition to my class. At the moment we only watch Charlie Brown DVD's, which the kids LOVE by the way.

Do you watch DVD's/ movies with your class?


  1. Thanks for the shout out! Our district is really strict on what we show in class. We are ONLY allowed to show educational movies. I am a little disappointed, since I had just finished buying every holiday version of Charlie Brown (my classes have always loved them, too!). PreSchool Prep also has some great videos I use for letters and sight words. I am now building my collection of educational movies, to use on those Friday afternoon when I just don't think I will make it! :)

  2. You've never heard of Leap Frog educational videos? Oh my'll love them! Sometimes I will go to teach something and they will say "we already know that from leap frog!". WHAT?!?!?! hahahaha

  3. Janae, my current district is not as struck with movies but my old one was. I understand the dilema. However, if I am ever questioned on it now, I would say my ELL students are learning about American customs. :)

    Rachelle, I was clueless but now I've seen the light.

  4. There are two news one too. They came out last week and are wonderful. My county doesn't like movies either but these are so full of instruction they do not mind these at all.


Thanks for the comment. Please come back again.
