1  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child to Read / Re: What Do You Do With A Kangaroo? on: August 25, 2009, 05:31:32 PM
One of my favorites is "Go Away Big Green Monster."  There is a Spanish version too.  The kids could have heard it a hundred times.  In a row. LOL
2  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: How do you teach a very active baby? on: July 13, 2009, 04:16:06 PM
I had this "problem" with my son was was very active too.  I took the opportunity when we were in the car to play eduational songs on the radion and eventually got a car DVD player.  Shows that were not interestig in the house became interesting when there was no other choice.  Good luck!
3  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Music / Re: Piano Lesson: Revolutionary Learning Method for kids and adults based on color associations on: April 30, 2009, 01:13:55 PM
I'm happy to hear about the flashcards with the color arrangement that I prefer smile .

I would have waited to order them together if I had known they were coming out soon. Any estimated time of arrival for Rock Bassey and Rhythmo?

We are working hard.  Should be done this year!  The bass clef flashcards (color coded) will be done beforehand, though.
4  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Music / Re: Piano Lesson: Revolutionary Learning Method for kids and adults based on color associations on: April 29, 2009, 07:27:33 PM
I agree the random colors would be visually chaotic.  I suppose other companies have other philosophies.  In any event, Cristofori will very shortly be coming out with some note flash cards that correspond to the lessons on the DVD.  If you have ordered, you will be emailed when the product becomes available.  It is another way to reinforce the note lessons.
5  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child - Signing, Speaking, Languages / Re: Will anybody recommend French movie DVD watchable by kids? on: April 27, 2009, 10:47:24 PM
As I have posted earlier, I really like the Muzzy DVDs.  They come in many languages and recently became available on a DVD that can be played in all languages.
6  Products Marketplace / Product Partners / Re: Is it safe to buy Trebellina online? on: April 27, 2009, 10:44:32 PM
Hello there.

Our store is a Yahoo store.  If Yahoo does not have safety down, I'm not sure who might!  LOL None of our customers has ever had a problem.   
7  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Music / Re: Perfect Pitch Training? on: April 26, 2009, 11:28:17 PM
KL, that's pretty wild!

My daughter has perfect pitch.  No one else in our extended family has it.  The only thing we did to foster it was playing the Trebellina DVD for her as a baby.  She can now tell you what any note is if she only hears it.  This includes sharps and flats.  In addition, if you strike a key without her seeing it, she can run over and play the same key.  She can sometimes sing a note that you tell her to, but she is not as good at that yet.  Still practicing!
8  Products Marketplace / Product Discussions and Reviews / Re: learning languages by muzzy!!! on: April 23, 2009, 04:08:08 PM
i hate to admit that i 'm the only one here who liked it!  My kids have had it sonce they were born, having received it as a gift.  We traded it in for the DVD that can be set to every language (rather than just one).  True, it is a cartoon, but my very young children liked it adnd still do years later.  What it has that not every cartoon has is segments built into the storyline (perhaps i should say inserted into the storyline -- they have nothing to do with the story at all) that teach different things like, what to say in the morning, afternoon, evening, numbers, colors, letters, etc.  The entire DVD story (which is quite lengthy) is devised to teach many different basic things in a foreign language.  My kids have learned to say much from the DVD and understand all of it (even though we have not put on the subtitles, which you can also set it for in English and in the foreign language).

AUTISM??!!?  Where in the world would someone come up with that?
10  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Music / Re: Traditional vs Suzuki Method for Piano on: April 08, 2009, 04:36:19 PM
I think most parents start their children with Suzuki because Suzuki gladly teaches the very young children and most traditional piano teachers do not want to or do not know how to deal with very young children.  Many parents who started their child with the Suzuki method find that when it comes time to learn to read music, the children do not want to do it and try to rely on their ears, which is a problem for someone who has a long range goal for their child to play an instrument. 

Young children, however, can learn to read notes and can take traditional lessons with a very patient and creative teacher who loves young children.  It may be difficult to find a teacher but worth the search.

My husband and I created the Trebellina DVD (for which you can receive a discount on this site) to teach super young children to decode the notes and move forward the age at which children can start lessons.  [It also helps them develop pitch.]
11  Products Marketplace / Product Partners / Re: Get Discounts from Cristofori on Trebellina Products! on: April 02, 2009, 02:21:12 PM
I love it!  My son and daughter (no longer babies) like to sing that part together. 
12  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child - Other Topics / Re: Teaching ART on: March 31, 2009, 04:13:28 PM
I saw that article on the Yahoo news and got a great chuckle out of it.  I wasn't sure what was funnier -- that everyone appreciated the two year old's paintings as great art or the "expert" that came on and insisted that a two year old could not have painted them! wacko
13  Products Marketplace / Product Partners / Re: Trebellina review on: March 31, 2009, 03:56:27 PM
Thanks for the review, Nikita.  I'm glad you liked it! big grin
14  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Teacher's that cant spell on: March 31, 2009, 03:42:56 PM
I feel your pain.    yes
15  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: Where to draw the line on Educational DVD's? on: March 31, 2009, 03:34:32 PM
My rule when my children were babies was that once I thought they had learned the concepts in a particular DVD, I would no longer play it or rarely play it.  At that point, there was no great educational value and it had become pure entertainment. 

When babies are very young, sometimes it is hard to know that they have learned the material.  I believed that my children learned of the information on many DVDs fairly quickly -- within a week or so -- as the material is so simple.  Colors and shapes are ridiculously easy for a baby to learn when presented in a simple, easy to understand format.  Babies don't need to watch that hundreds of times!  And so those DVDs are better acquired from the library.  Others, such as reading DVDs (including  our product, Trebellina, for reading music) may take a little longer than say, shapes, and are worth the investment. 

Of course this is all very child specific  -- just some food for thought.

And it goes without saying that it is also important to incorporate what they are learning on DVD into real life -- "Look at those BLUE flowers!"  "The stop sign is an OCTAGON."  You know!
