Several of my homeschooling mommy friends recommended this, and we were very excited to get it. My daughter learns very well with songs, so we thought this would be perfect! When I received the package, my 5 year old and I excitedly opened it, but were somewhat disappointed to find that there were cassette tapes and a VHS. I was told that the songs that are on the cassettes are the same as the songs that are on the CD, but I have not confirmed that yet. I am unable to watch the VHS as we do not have a VHS player and shouldn't have to purchase one just to watch this one video. I know some homes still have VHS and DVD players, but come on, you really need to get with the times and upgrade the VHS to the DVD format. Other than that, we are happy with the product.
This was worth every penny. I am homeschooling my kindergartener and she loves this curriculum. She has looked forward to school time every day and her reading has improved tremendously in a short period of time. The curriculum is interactive and fun. There are worksheets and hands on activities as well as songs and games. We are very pleased.
I think this is an amazing program! I used Sing, Spell, Read and Write with my daughter and we had a great time. The songs are fun and easy to remember and you can progress at your own pace. I will be starting Kindergarten with my son this year and I am using the program again! This isn't your normal boring program . . . It's fun and it works!
