One show that I enjoy watching with the girls is Team Umizoomi. I think it's cute and totally NOT annoying like so many of the others. I love ALL the math involved in each episode. From "PATTERN POWER!" to counting and everything else. Lately this has been my girls' DVD top choice!
Team Umizoomi from Nickelodeon has a new release coming out Tuesday, June 28th. Here is a little about it:
They’re mini, they’re mighty and they’re built for math! Nickelodeon is bringing its hit animated preschool series that encourages tots to become strong and mighty to DVD with the debut of Team Umizoomi...
The new DVD will take viewers on adventures to learn about numbers, patterns, and important early math concepts. The DVD contains four episodes, special features, a Math Mission card for on-the-go math problem solving and the guest voice of platinum-selling Jive recording artist Jordin Sparks.
In addition, the DVD includes a one-year free subscription to Parents Magazine. (And I believe it is in the first 50,000 copies sold.)
Team Umizoomi features a tiny team of superheroes, Milli, Geo and Bot, who use their mighty math powers to help little kids solve big problems. The series combines action-adventure missions with an interactive math curriculum designed to help kids develop self-confidence in their math abilities and appreciate the many ways in which math shapes their world. The Umi Team is not complete without their Umi Friends (home viewers), who help the team along the way while practicing various math skills. Set to a soundtrack of preschool-friendly pop songs, the series is designed to build upon preschoolers’ conceptual understanding of math as they are exposed to core mathematical concepts like numbers, counting, computations, measurement, patterns and shapes.
There are four episodes included on this DVD. They are:
The Rolling Toy Parade
The Legend of the Blue Mermaid
Wild West Toy Train Show
