Wow, this is amazing!!! Thank you so much for sharing, Yvonne! You are lucky that your son can go to a physical classroom for his right brain training. I think it helps a lot. I am sure your son will be one of the smartest when he goes to school. smile

Hi waterdreamer!

I started Memory Magic when my older daughter was 4. She loves all 3 online games and I am glad that the CD teaches the 'silly story' method!! It is a very effective way to memorize a bunch of unrelated information in a short time.

Not sure how exactly to answer your question... hmmmm, I just showed her how to play and I then played with her together. Soon she could play on her own. smile If your son doesn't know how to play, play with him! It is the best way to raise his interest and to show him how to do it. For the Silly Story game, I told the story with the picture and then guided her to do the game.

Hope it helps!

Teresa

Hi Leny,

Thanks for the question! This thread is long but you will know it better (what to buy/ what the DVDs are about/ the reason behind it/ the best time to play the DVD to your toddler...) by reading the first few pages. Many people who commented on this thread have given a lot of useful information. I am sure you will learn a lot out of it!

These are the right brain DVDs that I was using with my son and you can get it from here:
Tweedlewink DVDs: http://bit.ly/ak9KRz (my son started when he was about the same age as your son)

I also have Memory Magic Deluxe games: http://bit.ly/bLEkLj

Also bought the downloadable book Nurturing Creative by Dr. Yew Kam Keong (really good book to read!):
http://bit.ly/bAN5iZ

As for my son's language development, apart from giving him the Tweedlewink DVD (and his vocabulary increased from 10 to 40 in a month), I don't think I did anything differently - so that's why I attributed the improvement to the DVDs. It may be different from child to child, you just have to be patient and keep on playing with him!

Have a great day!
Teresa

Hi fayzspace,

Nice! Be sure to be consistent to be able to make a great impact! Wishing you luck! smile

An update about my son for everyone on this thread: He turned 3 last November (yes  yes , time flies!!! feel like I am getting old...  wacko )
He is attending a Montessori preschool. His teacher started him with 'practical life' exercise. Recently I was told that my son is in fact more capable than they thought. What he had been doing was not challenging enough for him and therefore he didn't seem to be too interested. One day his teacher taught him to do 'sound cylinder' (hm... not sure what exactly it is but it is a new set of more challenging activity) and he did very well! They are also surprised to see that he already knows his alphabets. The teacher's feedback was that he became more engaged and is more interested in learning. Now they are going to advance him to a higher level.

According to my older daughter who is 5.5, sound cylinder is only done by 'big kids' and she is still doing it in her kindergarten.

So... I guess my hard work is starting to pay off?

Recently found a really good toy store (by Scholastic!): http://bit.ly/9i8Qai They have lots of quality non-violent educational toys. Check them out!

Hi everyone,

Some sharing...

I have got 'Your Baby Can Read' DVD and play card set for a month and I tried it with my kids. My 4 1/2 old loves it and she can recognize the words real quick (the phonics lesson that she has from school helps, and this is one reason why she loves the DVD!!) My 2 1/2 years old son likes it too although he's slower in recognizing the words. My 7 months old baby doesn't like it...

This is a more left-brained lesson. It focuses on repetition. You are required to play the same DVD 2 times per day for 1 whole month before you can move on to another lesson. Personally I prefer developing the right brains for kids when they are at these young age, because this is the time when they can absorb lots of information like a sponge using their right brains. Having this 'skill' will benefit them for a life time. Well, since my daughter loves it and she can learn quick from it, I guess the DVD also has a good market.  LOL

I have recently signed up for tips from Child Genius Minds at http://childgeniusminds.com/. I would recommend it to everyone because it has lots of interesting tips for higher IQ for kids.  yes Check it out!

Teresa

You are most welcome! It's a joy to share our children's success!  LOL
7  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: We are starting to use right brain education to our son on: February 11, 2009, 10:28:54 PM
Just read this from a blog about 'perfect pitch', and would like to share:

'It tracks a musical child prodigy, Marc Yu, through his remarkable progress in the world of classical music. At age two, little Marc could bang out "Mary had a little lamb" on the piano after listening to the tune once. At three, he gave his first public performance on the piano, performing a Beethoven piece. And at seven, he is able to play 40 pieces of classical music from memory. It is truly extroardinary to listen to him play an exquisite Chopin nocturne that would have stumped a teenager who is twice his age and of normal intelligence, with a bit more practice under his belt. As the boy genius puts it gleefully: "I like the difficult pieces, especially when my teacher says no." It also turns out that he has perfect pitch (industry insiders will know this is a very rare talent), which he was born with, not taught. Only one in 10,000 people have it.'

http://www.onlinedocumentaries4u.com/2008/11/my-brilliant-brain-born-genis.html

My son was exposed to the 'perfect pitch' training when he watches the DVDs. Every time he will voice out the piano pitch and I am amazed how accurate it is! At age 2, he is interested in all sorts of musical instruments. Now, he knows how to play a 1-tone harmony with 2 keys on the piano. Moreover, he already has a concept of an orchestra. I saw him gathering toys that play music, turn them all on while he plays the toy guitar.

Kids never cease to amaze us!  rolleyes

I think the claim (e.g. soft voice & no words when illustrating the solar system) about the Tweedlewink DVD is right but I won't take it as a bad thing. Children absorb what they see quickly, and I am focusing on result. The sharing that I made about my son's developmental leap is a solid proof that the DVD is making an impact  big grin

I have recently bot "Your Baby can Read" because I have heard that it's also a very good one. Haven't received the DVD yet but will definitely share the result smile

Haven't tried the Memory Magic CD yet. Got it last week!

9  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child - Signing, Speaking, Languages / Re: How to encourage toddler to speak? on: February 09, 2009, 12:41:38 AM
Actually studies show that babies using sign language speak faster than those who have not exposed to sign language.

Initially I thought that was strange 'cause I was thinking the same thing as you did. But later I think that can be reasonable because babies who are communicating with sign language are used to expressed themselves. So it makes sense they are expressing themselves better when they learn how to speak.  yes

Hello baby 1,

There are lots you can do to stimulate right brain. When babies are using their subconscious minds (when they are quietly playing, crawling or sleepy), teaching them by using physical flash cards, playing classical music or flash card DVDs will strengthen their right brains. There is a very good article about crawling in the Brillbaby Resource. Take a look!

11  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / Re: More questions about right brain learning on: December 29, 2008, 11:44:05 PM
It's good to stimulate both left and right brains. Traditional education is left brain development and the flash cards/ DVDs are right brain training. In fact, if we develop the right brain at baby's early stage (because babies use more right brain when they are small), the left and right brain connection will be stronger later when they grow up.

If you want to learn more about right brain education, here's an ebook (it's free  LOL ) offered by Tweedlewink: http://www.rightbrainkids.com/jv/hop/?Clk=2320028

This is where you can find the DVDs: http://www.rightbrainkids.com/jv/hop/?af=742989

Have a happy new year!

Hi Sapna,

I haven't received the CD yet and I bot the Deluxe one. The thing that triggers me to buy is their "silly story" game. This is a powerful method to remember a lot of information in order, and I would like my kids to have this training. I hope they will like it!
