271  BrillKids Software / Little Reader - General Discussion / Re: What are the contents of the TweedleWink DVDs like? on: February 24, 2012, 07:57:06 PM
Alright, I can't afford to buy the whole dvd series at a time, so I am wondering somethings.  1) If there are nine lessons, do you show the lesson only once or is it shown once a day for a week or month...how many times should it be shown?   I am thinking if I can buy one dvd a month, I could be offering my children an awesome right brain education.   I can't seem to find a spot on their page that just puts it out there how their program should be used.  Also what are the essentials?

Thanks!
272  Parents' Lounge / Introduce Yourself / I love this Forum! on: February 22, 2012, 05:21:47 AM
I just wanted to say hello.  I am new to this forum, but I have learned so much in the little time I have been here.  I learn something new everyday on accelerated early childhood education.  I can't wait to get this program (hopefully in the next month).  I am not a deep pocket individual, but my children's education is a priority for me.  I want them to have it easier than me and to be filled with confidence that they can achieve anything they want in life.   My goal is to give them a competitive edge.  I plan on homeschooling my children, and I am glad I found Brill Kids and this wonderful forum.   Thanks to everyone!
273  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child - Signing, Speaking, Languages / Re: How to teach other Language Like French and Spanish on: February 21, 2012, 09:27:37 PM
I am not fluent in Spanish, so I am trying to learn.  I am using www.spanishdict.com.  Its free.  Plus MIT has an open source course at http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/ and they offer all the college level material for Spanish.  All for free.

For my kids, I found a great series called SALSA which is a 42 episode Spanish TV series.  Its also free and found here: http://www.gpb.org/salsa.   You can also found free a curriculum that goes with the series here under foreign language: http://edu.wyoming.gov/Programs/standards.aspx.   I am going to be using these programs to supplement Brill Kids Little Readers (which I can't wait to purchase in March!).  hope that helps.

You are a wealth of knowledge Chris.  Thanks for the share.
275  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Math / Re: Abacus transitions into Vedics? on: February 18, 2012, 08:04:46 AM
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/gwaAAEYIW_8" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> *Obviously I can't seem to figure out how to embed the video into my post.   confused

I am finding that vedics mathematics has very dynamic ways of finding answers while the soroban might be more ridge.  I am just learning about the abacus (I can't even find a place to buy one in my town of over 500,000, but I am learning a lot from these forums.   

The above video demonstrates some of what I call "magic" of math, and vedics really opens the window to the way math is everywhere and in everything.  I have been okay at math, but I have never been fascinated by math until my recent discovery of vedics. 

I am curious if anyone knows if you can successfully teach one method side by side with another.  That is can I teach the use of the abacus while teaching the use of the different sutras of vedics mathematics.

I am currently working through a free teacher's manual on vedic mathematics at the Elementary level found here: http://www.vedicmaths.org/Bookstores/V%20M%20Teacher%27s%20Manual%201.asp

My children are only 2 and 3 so I am just trying to figure it all out now. 
276  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Math / Re: Abacus transitions into Vedics? on: February 16, 2012, 05:26:27 PM
Thanks.  That does really put things in perspective for me.

Thanks
278  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Math / Abacus transitions into Vedics? on: February 15, 2012, 06:32:01 PM
I am seeking advise on whether one can begin a child in the abacus and then later transition them into vedics mathematics.  Or is the abacus sufficient enough in mental math that teaching vedics would be redundant?

Thanks
279  EARLY LEARNING / Teaching Your Child Math / Re: Mental Math progress! on: February 12, 2012, 04:41:18 AM
I am really fascinated by vedic mathematics but I realize I need a bridge for my 2 and 3 year old to get there.  Is teaching the abacus a good bridge towards vedics mathematics or is learning the abacus sufficient enough.  thanks to anyone who can help.
280  EARLY LEARNING / Early Learning - General Discussions / When to know its too much? on: February 11, 2012, 01:54:53 AM
I have been using the doman method with my 4 month, 2 yr old, and 3 (almost 4) year old for over a month.  I have created several powerpoints (20+) with ten pictures and ten words per presentation.   The range from different topics of color, mammals, reptiles, birds, shapes, math (doman dot cards), emotions, family, body parts, actions, and 1 for their Spanish lesson based off the free SALSA videos that have a full free curriculum online.   

How do I know when its too much?  The children seem to never get bored of the presentations, but are they not absorbing as much because there are so many presentations?  Are they capable of taking in all that information? 

I was going to throw in encyclopedic knowledge presentations but I am afraid of overloading them.   Thanks for any help.
