...The ABC's of Teaching the ABC's directed otwards parents of preschoolers, is a brief guide to innovative ways to help teach children the alphabet. The brainchild of educator Dr. Jeanne Mattick, the program presents a series of vignettes of parents and children at the park (tracing letters in the sand), at the grocery store (naming the first letters of vegetaables), at home (drawing letters in pudding), at the zoo (figuring out the first letter of the animal's names), playing alphabet games at bedtime, and more. Understanding that learning styles vary from child to child, Mattick's suggestions incorporate seeing, hearing, and doing. A good aid for parents. -- Video Librarian November-December 1993

Activities for parents interested in teaching their children the alphabet are presented in this snappily paced video. Captioned tips, an engaging song, and remarks from a supportive host augment realistic, illustrative vignettes. For example, a father pushes his son on a park swing while the child repeats alphabet letters, a mother arranges macaroni to spell out her daughter's name, and another father introduces his child to grocery store items that begin with different letters of the alphabet. Other suggestions include labeling household articles and using billboards and license plates to locate sounds and letters. A well-ordered, helpful video for involved parents... -- Booklist 2-15-93

Dr. Jeanne Mattick, with more than 25 years experience in education, is producing videos to show parents of preschoolers how they can teach their children key educational concepts needed to succeed in school.

Mattick would speak to parents and they would tell her that they wanted to help their children, but didn't know what to do. She realized that parents from all walks of life often did not know how to interact with their children in a meaningful way to promote learning skills.

One of the most important factors in a child's school success is parental involvement. The first video in this series is called "The ABC's of Teaching the ABC's," and is available from SOS Videos, runs 14 minutes...

The ABC's of Teaching the ABC's: This video puts parents back into the picture and demonstrates how they can be their child's first teacher. Parents are reminded of the many ways of communicating with children. They see ways to use the home, the store, the zoo and the park as backdrops for learning the alphabet.

Parents will appreciate the dynamics of an adult-child situation where playfulness enhances the learning process.

There are examples of learning by seeing, hearing and touching, and the video is a reminder that meaningful learning is not just a series of skills to be conquered. A booklet to help guide parents is enclosed with each video. -- Daily Herald, January 8, 1994, Jeff Tuckman

This interesting and quite practical production instructs parents about the natural opportunities that can be used daily to assist in their child's letter recognition. Emphasized are the importance of parental involvement in their child's formal and informal education on a daily basis and how easy the demonstrated methodologies are to integrate with daily activities. A brief discussion explores the different kinds of learning styles that children may possess so parents can use the appropriate methodologies for their child. Scenarios show parent and child integrating ABC's with play activities, an alphabet hike with identification of zoo animals, tracing letters in sand, practicing sounds and shapes of letters in the grocery store, and so on.

This quality production offers several educationally sound and intellectually stimulating activities that provide a wealth of ideas for parents and caregivers. A useful purchase for all public libraries-it will be a welcome addition to parenting shelves. -- Video Rating Guide for Libraries Vol. 5, No.1

From the Contributor:

This video is a helpful learning tool for parents of preschoolers. It would also be useful to show the babysitter so she or he could engage in meaningful activities with preschool children which would help them learn the alphabet at the same time. The ABC song is a new tune which is very "upbeat" and one in which you can actually understand the sound of each alphabet.
