Monster Math Squad has (30) math-filled episodes on (3) discs
that blend math challenges seamlessly into an engaging story line.
Mill Creek Entertainment has found a way to make learning math fun with their (30) episode, (3) disc DVD set of 'Monster Math Squad.'
The episodes in these DVDs are cute, intriguing, and fun to watch too!! My son (age 6) wanted to keep watching them this morning instead of getting ready for school. You know, he had the "stare straight ahead so you don't miss it" thing going on while mom was trying to button shirt buttons and comb wet hair. That's pretty good considering he's always quick to get ready himself in the morning, and this was a learning video.
The episodes include Max, Lily, and Goo...three loveable monsters that head about a daily task, such as babysitting, only to find math challenges all along the way. There is counting, number recognition, sorting, and the like involved, but it's all cleverly integrated into the attention-capturing story line. There's also a 'word of the day' in each episode (a math word) that viewers are to recognize and use to interact along with the monsters when it's found.
We thought it was a great way to get children interested in Math challenges, without pushing them to just sit and learn. The natural progression of learning that occurs during the plot of each story is what captures the children's attention (along with the colorful, and very cute monsters). It makes learning effortless and fun too.
I highly recommend this DVD for the younger crowd (Pre-School to Young Elementary Grades). Five out of Five stars from me on this one. I loved it, and my Kindergartner did too.
