The Amazing Action Alphabet phonics program review and give-away

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on July 31, 2012

in Amazing Action Alphabet, Give-Aways, Uncategorized

I like to provide an organized phonics program to my students throughout the school year as well as natural opportunities for introducing and exploring the sounds of letters. Last year, for our organized phonics program, I implemented the simple but super fun program called The Amazing Action Alphabet ….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Amazing Action Alphabet flip chart comes with a CD of songs to sing-along with each letter of the alphabet.  The songs are lively and fun but I must confess to you that we did not use the CD along with the chart as suggested. Instead, we played the CD during our center time for the children to listen and sing along with while they played…

For each Letter that is Introduced in the Alphabet Action Flip Chart, there is a specific sound and motion the children are to make. The sound is the sound of the letter and the motion is a physical reinforcer of that letter sound. For example, for the letter C the children held out their hands and moved their fingers to “c, c, cut!”…

Because we are a mixed age group class of children ranging from ages 3 to Pre-K, we needed to keep our phonics program short and active so everyone enjoyed the experience. On Pre-K day only, we would quickly review all the letters with the children and they amazed me at how they easily remembered every sound and every action…

We gradually worked our way through all the letters throughout the school year and even did a very quick run-through of all the letter sounds and actions for our parents on graduation day…


We will certainly be using The Amazing Action Alphabet flip chart and CD again this next year in my classroom!

I love this idea. I teach preschoolers and If I’m not the winner I will be purchasing this.
Flip Chart – I can use this during circle time.

The essential guide to learning letters and sounds for the Amazing Action Alphabet program.

2 Susan Jones July 31, 2012 at 8:34 am

I love the flip chart. I can use it at circle time

3 Christina Hall July 31, 2012 at 8:36 am

I read that the best way to teach letters is through: see + hear + do= learning. :) I’d love to win!

4 Kathi July 31, 2012 at 8:41 am

What a great reminder! “Researchers and educators have found that people retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they see and hear, and up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do”. The more senses we use in learning the more we retain. I love that this program uses a combination of seeing, hearing and doing! Thanks for introducing me to The Amazing Action Alphabet program!

5 kelly tillotson July 31, 2012 at 8:48 am

Researchers and educators have found that people retain 20% of what they hear opposed to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do. I definitely can testify to that since I know thats how I learn best, and also I’ve seen that method really stick with my own preschooler. thanks! this giveaway would be great for our little homeschool

6 Cheryl Duffy July 31, 2012 at 8:54 am

Hi! I particularly like the audio samples and the flip chart. Love to integrate literacy throughout the day- this would be a great addition!

7 Kristen July 31, 2012 at 8:57 am

I love the concept of using motion to cement ideas of print. So often letters are demonstrated and then students have to jump to trying to correctly draw them. Little ones need to “play” with their ideas before they become concrete. I would love this for my little one who has no interest in making letters:)

8 JEnnifer Soria July 31, 2012 at 9:08 am

Love that it includes movement…songs and movement I have found grow my kid by leaps and bounds…it is amazing how something so simple can help so much!

9 Amber July 31, 2012 at 9:08 am

I love this! I like how it said children learn by seeing, hearing, and doing!

10 Stephanie Robson July 31, 2012 at 9:08 am

SEE+HEAR+DO= LEARNING
I would use this with my daycare kiddos.. would be a wonderful addition to our program :)

11 Tina Rojas July 31, 2012 at 9:09 am

Oh my goodness this is so cute!! I’m homeschooling my children, and my youngest is preschool-aged. This is a fantastic way to teach phonics. Thank you for this giveaway opportunity!

12 Donna July 31, 2012 at 9:09 am

What a super new way to use all the senses to teach the sounds and symbols!!! I’ve used a couple of other similar programs with great results so I am confident that this one would be a great addition!! As I have worked with many children for multiple years (yes I have worked with and continue to work with multiple aged classes) I sometimes find myself getting bored doing the same thing each year….this would give a stupendous way to vary my teaching methods in order to help the children learn to their best potential!! I have found that using all the senses along with movement and music to be the VERY best way for young children!! I WANT THIS!!!!!

13 Shanna Briggs July 31, 2012 at 9:10 am

I love how this program gets the children involved!!! I like this scensory process!

14 Pamela Spann July 31, 2012 at 9:11 am

I like the idea of seeing, hearing and doing the alphabet.

15 Julie July 31, 2012 at 9:13 am

I love that it teaches by seeing, hearing, and doing. Not all students learn the same way…this product allows for this. I would love to win this for my preschoolers.

16 Jen Reap July 31, 2012 at 9:13 am

I love the hearing, seeing, doing. My class would love it!

17 Emily Dixon July 31, 2012 at 9:14 am

The combination of seeing + hearing + doing that = learning has been shown to be the most effective way to learn. How fun!

18 Joan Banker July 31, 2012 at 9:15 am

I might use this concept as my preschool theme for the year! My little students love making books so I am very interested in the mini-books. We will certainly consider using this program at our school in the Fall !!!

19 Laura Dallas July 31, 2012 at 9:16 am

I teach 3′s and the flip chart and cd sound perfect for this age where it is hard to be still!

20 Jenn Puckette July 31, 2012 at 9:16 am

See + Hear + Doing = Learning! Absolutely…don’t tell me what to know or do, let me at it!

21 Kim July 31, 2012 at 9:17 am

Loved this whole idea. I am a new teacher and have been looking for something simple but informative for my class. Thank you and will pass this on to my director and other preschool teachers

22 upasana biswal July 31, 2012 at 9:17 am

love it, have been looking for something similar for few months now:)

23 Donna Estes July 31, 2012 at 9:17 am

I really like the approach of “seeing, hearing and doing” in order to learn the letters and and their sounds. I highly recommend this book to educators wanting to go to the next level in teaching a child the sounds of the alphabet. Definitely considering incorporating this into our program!

24 Bev July 31, 2012 at 9:17 am

Very interactive for children for children. It has been proven that you learn better when you see+say+do. My students will truly engage themselves with this. I want like the mini books and the worksheets. Hands on learning is so effective for young children. I want to win the Amazing Action Alphabet phonics program for my class. This is a great program.

25 Donna July 31, 2012 at 9:19 am

I think this would be an asset to my classroom. What an amazing idea to incorporate the senses to help children retain the alphabet better. I can’t wait to use this in September!

26 Tia July 31, 2012 at 9:19 am

This looks like an excellent program whose “seeing + hearing + doing that = learning method” would be a great addition to other curriculums that are required in the classroom. Thank you for the opportunity to learn about this!

27 kayla July 31, 2012 at 9:20 am

I would love to see what is in the Handwriting book. My daughter is 3 and can easily write her name Gabby on anything. (even though she doesn’t know all the letters of the alphabet.) She will be writing sight words very soon. I think it’s backwards from the normal timeline. But she basically taught herself… Now I need to keep her going and fill in the missing spaces.
Would love to win this!

28 Cheryl Woodard July 31, 2012 at 9:20 am

What I like about The Amazing Action Alphabet phonics program is that its lets children use multiple senses to learn. According to the research from the program this type of learning is “most powerful method for learning and retention we know”. This looks like a fun and engaging program for young children.

29 Holly boyer July 31, 2012 at 9:21 am

This is great! I’ve been teaching prek for five years now and every year I have tried new strategies for teaching letters and sounds. This is something I certainly want to try!

30 Julia K July 31, 2012 at 9:22 am

Letters are an abstract concept. Children have difficulty learning concepts that aren’t concrete. This program takes the abstract and makes it concrete by attatching something real to each letter. I think this concept is a great learning tool for the children. They will finally be able to make the connections they need to.

31 Kellie July 31, 2012 at 9:24 am

Wow! Great program- I didn’t realize that children learn 90% of what they see, hear and do as opposed to only 50% of what they see. I love that it is so interactive.

32 Katie Partipilo July 31, 2012 at 9:25 am

This looks like an amazing program. This will be my first year of officially teaching a young 5′s program and I was looking for something different to use with the students, and I think I have found it. I like how they do movements with their bodies to recall the sound of a letter. What a great idea!! It is also nice that you can buy the items individually. What a great find!

33 Marsha Reaves July 31, 2012 at 9:26 am

I think this looks amazing. I very much believe in the concept of seeing, hearing, doing. If I don’t win I will be ordering this!!!

34 Lori July 31, 2012 at 9:26 am

they mentioned 20 percent of what you hear, fifty percent of what you see and hear, and 90 percent of what you see hear say and do; they did not mention (which is also important) that music helps kids remember. WIN WIN

35 Lisa Fields July 31, 2012 at 9:26 am

This would work so well for my kids. The site say “Researchers and educators have found that people retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they see and hear, and up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do.” And I so agree with this.

36 Lauren May July 31, 2012 at 9:28 am

I’ve been looking for a way to actively engage children in learning letters. I like how this incorporates visual, auditory and kinesthetic approaches to learning!

37 Kristen July 31, 2012 at 9:28 am

I applaud this program for including a kinesthetic component. This essential component is missing in many programs.

38 Shannon Hart July 31, 2012 at 9:29 am

When children first see letters they see abstract lines and symbols without any meaning to them. I liked the fact that they have taken an abstract shape and made it into an familiar animal that begins with that letter. The child knows animals so they can link the animal to the letter and it begins to make make connections by scaffolding what they know to this new concept.

39 Dina July 31, 2012 at 9:29 am

Would love to use this is my classroom!

40 Karna blugrind July 31, 2012 at 9:30 am

This program looks amazing. Seeing hearing but mostly doing is so effective when teaching young children. I would be super excited to implement this program in my class!!

41 Sharita July 31, 2012 at 9:34 am

I love the fact that it uses many different sences and forms of learning. This is what I try to base all my lessons on as a pre-k teacher. This is a wonderful product!

42 Melissa Ferringer July 31, 2012 at 9:35 am

My son is just about to turn 3 and would love this!

43 Kelly Weishaar July 31, 2012 at 9:35 am

I love the “mull-sensory” approach to learning letters that this program offers – children do so much better when you introduce new concepts using a variety of modalities. I also like that they have a “handwriting” book for practicing letter formation.

44 Shelby Willingham July 31, 2012 at 9:36 am

Love this ! ! ! While visiting the website and learning more about this incredible product, I came across one part that felt as if i had written it myself. The part talking about why the letters look, sound, and are called what they are. My son loves asking questions, and these questions are ones that he has asked me before. My answers were usually “Because that’s what they are!” I ABSOLUTELY love this product. If I do not win, I will be purchasing two, one for home and one for my son’s preschool class !!

45 Dinah Thanars July 31, 2012 at 9:39 am

OMG! Absolutely love this program-the children see, hear, do while increasing their vocabulary. This is a MUST for teaching the alphabet.

46 Tracy July 31, 2012 at 9:41 am

I love the flipchart and the CD! It would be wonderful to win, but I also teach preschool and I might be interested in purchasing it! Thank you for introducing this to me!

47 Debra Klee July 31, 2012 at 9:44 am

You know it’s true! Research shows that hearing, doing and seeing helps kids learn! I know it’s true even for me! LOL! I find myself singing and doing the motions to our little pre-school ditty’s while house cleaning and working in the garden! My kids think I am crazy, but they just stick with you! <3 , love, love it!

48 Karla Crawford July 31, 2012 at 9:44 am

I teach preschool for 3 and 4 yr olds. This is great option to implicate literacy in the classroom. It would come in handy for our circle time :)

49 Dana July 31, 2012 at 9:46 am

This looks great! I read about adding visual stimulation to auditory stimulation and kinesthetic stimulation for best retention of information. This would be fun to do with my kids! Thanks!

50 Allison Hepfer July 31, 2012 at 9:47 am

Wow! I love the multi-sensory approach. I teach kindergarten and this would be really beneficial!

51 Christie H. July 31, 2012 at 9:50 am

I would love to win this!! I like that each letter has it’s own “personality” that helps bring life to what could just be boring letters.

52 Toni Rosander July 31, 2012 at 9:53 am

I have the flichart but didn’t get the CD :( It sounds so fun, I wish I had it to go along with the flipchart! Music and songs makes learning easier and more fun :)

53 maureen July 31, 2012 at 9:54 am

I LOVE the Amazing Action Alphabet! I teach 22 pre-k students in an urban setting. The children have varied learning styles and backgrounds. I love the multisensory approach to learning the letters. I would love to use this in my classroom.

54 Jen C July 31, 2012 at 9:57 am

I love how it states :Researchers and educators have found that people retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they see and hear, and up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do. ” Then it includes all these ways into the program!

55 jody donaldson July 31, 2012 at 9:57 am

I love how it touches all learning styles! Seeing, hearing, and doing all while increasing vocabulary as well! What a great program for my 3 &4 yolds. :)

56 Tina c July 31, 2012 at 9:59 am

THIS looks really neat!!! I’m sure it would be a lot of fun to teach with

57 Kim Lavoie July 31, 2012 at 10:02 am

I LOVE this idea! I have 2 very wiggly boys and I read that this program combines seeing, hearing and DOING! I wish I could bold DOING! My boys would love this! I am so excited to win or even buy this. I can’t wait to see who gets it! Thanks for this great opportunity!

58 Debbie Cross July 31, 2012 at 10:04 am

Wow!! This would be great for my ECSE students.

59 Jan K July 31, 2012 at 10:06 am

I use zoophonics for my phonics program a that has signals for each letter. I think the extra action words will help me teach to a variety of skill levels.

60 Dawn Stephens July 31, 2012 at 10:10 am

I want this! Combining seeing, hearing and doing the way the Amazing Action Alphabet does is exactly the way my kids learn.

61 Page E July 31, 2012 at 10:10 am

If my class is anything like last year, they would live the CD! I would live to win this!

62 Beki Moore July 31, 2012 at 10:13 am

I saw right away this statement, “The combination of seeing + hearing + doing that = learning has been shown to be the most effective way to learn.” As an early childhood educator I learned many years ago that the more senses a child uses in an activity the better they will learn. This sounds like a top notch product and I hope that I am selected to win it. Thanks so much for offering this give away! :)

63 Mary Lehr July 31, 2012 at 10:14 am

I loved what Heather Abbott
had to say about this program. The fact that it is a FUN way to learn the alphabet is what teaching this age is all about. :) The more senses you can take in the better!
Mary

64 Jennifer July 31, 2012 at 10:16 am

I love this idea! I do not usually use flash cards because I don’t find them interactive enough and the children become easily bored with them. I love that these use so many of their senses to learn. Very interactive and they look like fun to use!

65 kathy adelini July 31, 2012 at 10:21 am

How cute of an idwa! See, hear and doing is a key concept for our younger jellibeans! Would love to have this for them!

66 Valerie Wesloskie July 31, 2012 at 10:21 am

What a fantastic resource!!! Thank you for sharing this ; ) I just accepted a Pre-K teaching position and this is a MUST HAVE for my students! I visited the Amazing Action Alphabet website and previewed their materials. Their See + Hear + Do = Learning approach to learning letters and their corresponding sounds is sure to be effective, engaging, and FUN for little learners! Thanks for entering me in your contest…I’d LOVE to win it to use in my classroom for years to come <3

67 Lee July 31, 2012 at 10:22 am

The combination of the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic is the key! We’ve done similar things without a program, but this program looks like it’s just what we need to be consistent and organized! Thank you!

68 Sandy July 31, 2012 at 10:23 am

When I read that researchers tell us that we retain 90% of what we see, hear, say, and do, it just solidified for me the teaching concept of hands on and communication that I try to foster in my own classroom. Thanks for sharing this program! I would love to implement it in my class!

69 Gloria Wilson July 31, 2012 at 10:25 am

The child hears an amusing story and learns the name and sound of the letter in the hearing portion. I love how so many senses are used in learning the letters.

70 Kaylen O. July 31, 2012 at 10:27 am

I’ve been on the hunt for a formal phonic program like this.

Love how the website said the curriculum engages so many of the children’s senses — the perfect way for young children to learn.

71 Meggie July 31, 2012 at 10:28 am

This is awesome! I would love to win! I read that Researchers and educators have found that people retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they see and hear, and up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do. This program is so successful because it uses this combination of all three. Thanks for introducing me to this. If I don’t win, I will be buying it for my preschool classroom and to use with my own kids.

72 Emily Hall July 31, 2012 at 10:30 am

This is great. I love the way you can reach each student. As a new teach er this is a great investment to be used year after year with out it ever getting old. This will keep the kiddos engaged. Simply love it!

73 Tara Brown July 31, 2012 at 10:34 am

This program looks very engaging! Seeing+Hearing+Doing= Learning that is awesome!!

74 tahoegrandma July 31, 2012 at 10:36 am

Seeing +hearing+doing=LEARNING!!! Love this…..

75 Gordon July 31, 2012 at 10:40 am

I love the fact they make a something that is abstract as letter sounds a very tactical experience

76 Tracy Crawford July 31, 2012 at 10:40 am

I love this program. The actions seem short and simply enough and the songs are very catching. I will be purchasing this program for my in home preschool this year. Very excited about it!

77 Janine July 31, 2012 at 10:41 am

A child learns by seeing, hearing, and doing!
I’d love to win and use this with my grandchildren!
Thank you!

78 Lorie July 31, 2012 at 10:41 am

I liked reading the review about the 4 year old who was struggling to learn the alphabet before this system!

79 Sara July 31, 2012 at 10:42 am

The animals make it so the letter is no longer abstract. Thanks for the giveaway!

80 Jessica Beard July 31, 2012 at 10:43 am

I would like the Handwriting Book too.

81 pearl July 31, 2012 at 10:44 am

Movement and motions help memory and learning.

82 Jen Emes July 31, 2012 at 10:47 am

“The combination of seeing + hearing + doing that = learning has been shown to be the most effective way to learn”, how true that is and what a great way to use this product!!! Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

83 Pat Noe July 31, 2012 at 10:50 am

Like this idea of using this Amazing Action Alphabet CD with my 4-yr-olds. We don’t do intensive alphabet practice & worksheets, but we do daily letter recognition as we go about our business in the morning. This CD sounds like something I’d like to try! MPNoe@Roadrunner.com

84 Janine Foth July 31, 2012 at 10:51 am

What a great program! I love the way it includes music and movement to teach not only the letters but the sounds too. I would love this flip chart and program for circle time :)

85 Julia July 31, 2012 at 10:51 am

Interesting that research has shown that we retain 90 percent of what we see, here and do (combination). Definitely interested in this program.

86 Juanita Hunt July 31, 2012 at 10:57 am

This program looks so neat. I love the actions that go along with the letters that make them easier to learn. The prices are so reasonable too.

87 Kimberly Connor July 31, 2012 at 10:57 am

I would love to win the Amazing Alphabet products. Great connection of phonemic sound to the letter! Super cute graphics too!!! My students would love learning this way!

88 Jessica Caudle July 31, 2012 at 10:58 am

I love the fact that this program incorporates all types of learners; those who learn by seeing, hearing and hands on learners. I would love to have this to use with my 2 year old. I’m currently a stay at home mother and a full time Early Childhood student. I could use this with my son and then in my future classroom! Thanks for the review!

89 Amy July 31, 2012 at 11:00 am

I definitely think that kids do tons better when they have an action associated with their letters. I came up with my own last year and was getting ready to tweak them and print them larger, but maybe I will save myself the hassle and just use this. Love the research!!!

90 Sharona July 31, 2012 at 11:02 am

Love the program, I read Jiff eats. Jiff and Jill ate ham and jam.

91 Joni July 31, 2012 at 11:07 am

I love the idea of kinesthetic stimulation. I have found that this really does work. Thanks for introducing this product to everyone.

92 Colleen July 31, 2012 at 11:09 am

“The Amazing Action Alphabet is so successful because it takes the abstract alphabet-with its shapes, names, and sounds-and presents it to the learner in terms based on knowledge that most children already have and understand.”

I have a home daycare and have had some struggles with some boys in my daycare learning their alphabet. This sounds like the perfect way to teach them.

93 kim merritt July 31, 2012 at 11:11 am

The approach of taking already child familiar and recognizeable animals and form them into letters is such an awesome idea and absolutely more fun than learning the old fashion way. Then using an activity to emphasize the letter and sound is the best way to teach! This is a fantastic idea!

94 Amy Beukema July 31, 2012 at 11:13 am

“Children recognize animals at a very early age. The Amazing Action Alphabet takes the already familiar look of an animal and bends it into the shape of an abstract letter. Now the shape of the letter is no longer abstract because the animal, which the child recognizes, makes the shape of the letter.” I have been hearing of this idea for quite a few years now. Great that there is now a unified system to use. Especially using all animals. First thing my 16 month old grandson learned to say, “Duck, quack, quack!” My 4 yr. old class will benefit greatly.

95 Aja Kunda July 31, 2012 at 11:15 am

Seeing+ hearing+ doing = learning. This is great and I think my daughter would benefit a lot from this.

96 Mud Hut Mama July 31, 2012 at 11:17 am

This flip chart looks great as do some of the other products on See Hear Do. I think the mini books would be good to use with the flip chart and CD. I don’t live in the U.S. but I have a U.S. mailing address – can I still enter?

97 Serena July 31, 2012 at 11:18 am

What an eye-opening site. This quote:
“The letters of the alphabet are abstract symbols with no real meaning until someone attaches a name and a sound to the symbol”

is something I have always believed and this format for presenting letters to children takes into consideration how children learn. They must experience!
I would love to win this for my head start preschool class!!

98 mel July 31, 2012 at 11:35 am

I learned that 90% of what people hear+see+do+say is retained. Which makes this great for preschoolers–gets their whole body involved!

99 Jenna July 31, 2012 at 11:35 am

I love adding the kinesthetic aspect by having them do an action for each letter. Looks great! Thanks!

100 Amanda July 31, 2012 at 11:38 am

This is exactly the type of HandsOnLearning I love using in my classroom!!!
SuperExcited to check it out!!!

101 Kristi B July 31, 2012 at 11:38 am

Children learn things easier and quicker when using multiple senses.

I am always on the look out for interactive teaching programs, and am so happy to find The Amazing Action Alphabet Phonics Program. This is something that will appeal to young children and their different learning styles. I am excited to share this with my co-workers for the upcoming 2012-2013 school year!

103 dianne wolfenbarger July 31, 2012 at 11:56 am

Seems like a great brain based program-cost effective, time effective-engaging and fun. Sounds like a great way to start the day with the kiddos. Combining all three senses to work toward 90% retention as opposed to 20 or 50 is definitey what we all strive for. Very ZPD (zone of proximal development) friendly! Would love to try it out. :-D

104 Cathy Loughry July 31, 2012 at 12:01 pm

I love the idea of combining these, hear & action in learning the alphabet.

105 Sherry July 31, 2012 at 12:15 pm

I like the way it targets different types of learners! Looks like fun!

106 Kristie July 31, 2012 at 12:28 pm

I teach special education K-3 and also Child Development classes for a local college. This CD sounds amazing! I definitely believe and teach the fact that “Researchers and educators have found that people retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they see and hear, and up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do.” When you store the information in multiple locations within the brain, it is easier to retrieve the information when it is needed.

107 Becky July 31, 2012 at 12:32 pm

I would love to have this for circle time. I could definitely see the childreinn getting involved in the stories and acting out the motions. Doing the motions will definitely help connect the letter sound to the letter.

108 Teri Sibenaller July 31, 2012 at 12:33 pm

For the ‘doing’ portion, the kids learn a body movement to help them remember the sound of that particular letter. The program utilizes all the kids learning areas of visual, auditory and kinesthetic ways to best learn the alphabet.

109 Katie July 31, 2012 at 12:33 pm

This is great because as the website says, it uses what kids already know (animals) to teach the abstract letters. What a wonderful way to use prior knowledge and add a more concrete factor to the alphabet!

110 lori dean July 31, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Love the CD and the flip chart. The music was catchy and I think that everything connected together will be a great benefit to all children.

111 Hilary Larson July 31, 2012 at 12:38 pm

I love their equation See+Hear+Do=Learning. This program looks like it appeals to all types of learners and can easily be adapted to fit in various classroom settings. From the reviews on the website it also sounds like it is effective for a wide range of ages. I would love to use this program for the Joy School I teach! Thanks for the review!

112 sarah July 31, 2012 at 12:39 pm

i love that this uses so many senses!

113 Joni Huffman July 31, 2012 at 12:42 pm

Love how this product uses all of the senses but feel i need to be honest. It is very similar to zoo phonics but seems more colorful and has more products. I would love to try it and if we like it. If we do id switch over.. thanks for sharing

114 Joni Huffman July 31, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Somehow I repeated myself there at the end but you get the idea. That’s what happens when I post from my phone;)

115 Joni Huffman July 31, 2012 at 1:13 pm
116 Camy Harper July 31, 2012 at 12:50 pm

I loved the integration of the five senses with this program

117 Teresa Larsen July 31, 2012 at 1:15 pm

I am always looking for new things and fun ways to teach my kids here, I would love the CD and Flipchart.

118 Lindsay July 31, 2012 at 1:15 pm

I LOVE the flip chart with the cute letter pictures, and stories to get children familiar with the letter and sound! What a great first letter experience!

119 Aimee Geise July 31, 2012 at 1:23 pm

I’ve seen similar done in a few of the preschool classrooms I’ve observed in and the children really seem to enjoy it and they learn quickly from it. As an aspiring preschool teacher this is something that I would love to use in my future classroom!

120 Amanda Ehrichs July 31, 2012 at 1:25 pm

The video of the little girl going through the letters and saying their sounds is so impressive! Looks like a great product!

121 Tasha Kearney July 31, 2012 at 1:29 pm

I learned that this program allows the children to see the letter, hear about its sound and perform an action to reinforce the letter sound.

122 Bobbi Capwell July 31, 2012 at 1:35 pm

I love the flip chart and the use of all of the senses. It is a great program. The video that is on the first page is great. I love that it can be used so seemlessly and in any classroom.
Bobbi
bcapwell@ccisd.net

123 Tara July 31, 2012 at 1:35 pm

I learned that if kids DO something they LEARN something. Cool!

124 Leslie Cooper July 31, 2012 at 1:46 pm

I have used different action signs for teaching vowel so I know that this will work…thanks for shring!

125 Samantha Harris July 31, 2012 at 1:50 pm

The combination of seeing + hearing + doing that = learning has been shown to be the most effective way to learn.

126 Paula Peterson July 31, 2012 at 1:50 pm

See-hear-do=learn! I love the multi-sensory approach. They remember it so much better when more than one sense is use.

127 Rose July 31, 2012 at 2:07 pm

Seeing, hearing, and doing = learning. I would love to win this product.
Thank you

128 Deanne July 31, 2012 at 2:08 pm

This looks like a great program. I love the connection of see, hear and do to get the child’s interest and help them learn. The statistics they give of 90% retain what they learn in this manner is proof that supports this type of learning.

129 danielle July 31, 2012 at 2:19 pm

My kids loved the sample song. Very multisensory and love the animals and see + hear + do approach. Homeschoolers on a budget would love a copy.

dantamez@gmail.com

130 Lori Thomas July 31, 2012 at 2:22 pm

The little girl in the video was absolutely adorable!! I like how this teaches upper case and lower case and incorporate sound. Using several senses is a GREAT teaching tool! This product would be a great addition to my classroom!
Thanks!

131 dyan July 31, 2012 at 2:22 pm

seeing + hearing + doing = learning :) love it and so would my three year old

132 Kim Cox July 31, 2012 at 3:28 pm

I love the fact that this program appeals to the sight, sound, and action of the children.

133 Tina July 31, 2012 at 3:29 pm

I love this program and would love to use it in my classroom. I believe that music and movement are critical components of any early childhood phonics/literacy program. This is fantastic!

134 Carol Stofan July 31, 2012 at 3:35 pm

I love the idea of the multi-sensory approach. I use several different songs and actions when I teach the letters and would love to incorporate this program into my curriculum. I use sign language as well and I think these actions/stories can take my approach one step farther. Thank you!

135 Brigette Hill July 31, 2012 at 3:39 pm

I love the action with the sounds. Children learn some much that way!

136 Lauren July 31, 2012 at 3:45 pm

I love the idea of seeing, hearing and doing to facilitate learning. My 3 and 4 year olds would love this! The graphics are adorable.

137 Shannon Stockton July 31, 2012 at 3:50 pm

I work with ESE children and we constantly use pictures and movements. This program would be ideal for my class. I love how it no longer is about the lines of the letters but about relating it to kid friendly animals. My children learn better the more senses we use! Thank you for introducing this program to us!

138 Kensey July 31, 2012 at 3:57 pm

I saw and read about the Handwriting Book, which I am excited to purchase! I think they’re idea of see, hear, do is spot on, so I’m really excited about this giveaway and implementing their techniques and ‘stuff’ into my preK classroom :)

ksworwood@yahoo.com

139 Cara July 31, 2012 at 4:08 pm

The activity book also looks fun. I should get that for my own preschooler. The flip chart would be a great addition to my preschool class, I would love to win!

140 Karrie L. Brown July 31, 2012 at 4:16 pm

I’m a Head Start Teacher for 3-5 year olds and children with special needs.I Stumbled across your site and fell in love with your ideas and have used a few. Like your easle started idea. I’ve noticed in my 20 year of teaching that children learn best when the can see-hear and do. This program would be a great addtion to my classroom.

141 Wendy P July 31, 2012 at 4:23 pm

See + Hear + Do = 90% retention.

I know this is true because the sign language alphabet has been so successful with my grandson. If I hand spell a word from a sign to him, he knows the letters. This will help me get him to the next step of recognizing all the letters without sign.

142 Olive's mum July 31, 2012 at 4:26 pm

I learned that each letter has the Shape of an animal.

143 Ellen July 31, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Researchers and educators have found that people retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they see and hear, and up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do.

I’ve heard this before, but had forgotten the percentages… and how compelling that information is to make what we teach meaningful! I have never heard of this before and I love that it’s engaging multiple sensory needs. If I’m not a winner, I’m going to add this to my wish list of things to purchase for next year. It looks great!

144 sheri dvorak July 31, 2012 at 4:38 pm

i love the concept of see, hear, do. i, too, teach 3-pre-k age children. love the concepts. wwould love to win!! randvorak@aol.com
thanks for a great idea!

145 Lorraine July 31, 2012 at 4:49 pm

Seeing, hearing, and doing equals learning! If I dont win, I may be buying his for my daycare!! Seems awesome :)

146 Heather T-G July 31, 2012 at 4:51 pm

I love the idea of incorporating a form of visual phonics with our letter-of-the-week program. We are a play-based learning environment and the more action we can incorporate with learning, the better. :)

The way the program forms the letters out of already-familiar shapes/animals is wonderful.

147 Barb Seier July 31, 2012 at 4:58 pm

The Amazing Action Alphabet uses the research of seeing + hearing +doing=learning. Great concept for teaching preschoolers.

148 Heather Tallman-Girvin July 31, 2012 at 5:00 pm

We use visual phonics to teach our letter-of-the-week program in our play-based learning environment. I love the idea of adding on more actions/movement to reinforce what the kids are learning. We use play to reinforce and introduce concepts that are new. “Researchers and educators have found that people retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they see and hear, and up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do.” I knew this, but didn’t know the percents. I love that this program uses already-familiar shapes (animals) to create the letters we are learning.

If we don’t win, I’m thinking we might just have to add it to our wish list before preschool starts in September. :)

149 Katy July 31, 2012 at 5:11 pm

I love that this approach works for all sorts of little learners (auditory, kinesthetic, linguistic). I would love to have this for my classroom!

150 Debbie July 31, 2012 at 5:30 pm

It is important to add movement to the things we do so this looks like an exciting thing to try. I like the handwriting book to go with it.

151 Jessika July 31, 2012 at 5:39 pm

Children learn by seeing, hearing and doing. Having each letter the shape of an animal is engaging.

152 KCamp July 31, 2012 at 5:52 pm

I would love this for my classroom!

153 Theresa Arel July 31, 2012 at 6:19 pm

I truly believe that the more senses used to learn, the quicker the lesson will be retained. Looks like a great fun way to teach-and learn!

154 Amanda July 31, 2012 at 6:28 pm

I love that they use three ways to teach phonics- seeing, hearing, doing. Every child learns differently (all three of my kids do) and this looks like a wonderful program!
jandrmom2009 at gmail dot com

155 Joe Leonard July 31, 2012 at 6:50 pm

I love the graphics and the I believe the kinesthetic stimulation is very important to early learning. Looks like great products, thank you.
Joe Leonard

156 Robin July 31, 2012 at 7:04 pm

Learning a new concept is best achieved by relating the new material to previously learned concepts. This is a good reminder :)

157 meg johnson July 31, 2012 at 7:11 pm

I read the proram teaches the alphabet by seeing, hearing, and doing.

158 sandy July 31, 2012 at 7:20 pm

Isaw the way teacher was using flip book and asking a child about picture. The child was telling and doing actions according to the pictures and words in the flip book. I would love to win for my children. Thank you. Sandy

159 Rebecca Gentile July 31, 2012 at 7:46 pm

“We remember 90% of what we read, hear, say, and do!” I love the bright colors and fun illustrations, and the fact that this set comes with a music CD. Sounds fabulous!

160 Jennifer Henry July 31, 2012 at 8:19 pm

I read: Seeing+Hearing+Doing=Learning!

161 Holly July 31, 2012 at 8:23 pm

I love the flip book! I have 2 kids plus a few more preschoolers who I could share the ideas with on the fall! Kids acting out letters and tracing in the air is a great intro to letters

162 Jenni Hoover July 31, 2012 at 8:32 pm

I love that the program uses “see, hear, do” for maximum learning! If I don’t win I will strongly consider purchase.

163 Belinda Gimpel July 31, 2012 at 8:32 pm

This is a very easy and interesting way to teach the letters and their sounds to PreK children at all levels. I love the idea that the combination of seeing + hearing + doing that = learning has been shown to be the most effective way to learn. Thank you for sharing.

164 Christine L. July 31, 2012 at 8:42 pm

I am always looking for new ways to present the alphabet to my UPK classes. I like the Idea of matching a motion (movement) to the letter and letter sound. children, like adults, learn differently, and this system addresses visual, audioand, kinistetic learners.

165 loren July 31, 2012 at 8:43 pm

I think using multiple learning styles (seeing, hearing, and doing) along with alliteration to emphasize the letter sounds makes learning fun and includes all children.

166 Lisa Brooker July 31, 2012 at 8:48 pm

I so agree that seeing + hearing + doing = learning.
I listened to the sound clips, but I am sure they don’t give a completely accurate sense of the songs.
I would certainly like to win this product!
Lisa B.
ILuvKindergarten@aol.com

167 Sally Cole July 31, 2012 at 9:01 pm

Quick question. How does it handle letters that make more than one sound?

168 Bette Vaughan July 31, 2012 at 9:07 pm

This would be great for my VPK class. I love the hear + see = do = learning concept.
bette@polkabean.com

169 Julie Panza July 31, 2012 at 9:35 pm

How genius! Since children learn animal names at an early age, the abstract shape of a letter is transformed into a recognizable animal. The child “sees” the animal and names the animal with the appropriate letter shape. The story uses repetitive sounds of the letter so the child “hears” the sound the now named letter makes. Lastly, the child uses action movements to “do” while repeating the letter sound. See + Hear + Do = Learning. I love it and would really love to implement this program with my 5 year old class!

170 Beth July 31, 2012 at 9:52 pm

I love this idea. I have taught for many years and always love new ideas. I use Dr. Jean’s Alphardy song along with hand movements, we learn to sign the alphabet and would love to add this to my resources. What fun….See-Hear-Do. The little girl in the video is too cute!!

171 Dusty July 31, 2012 at 10:18 pm

When you combine visual, auditory, and kinesthetic stimulation you have a 90% chance that the student will learn and retain the material taught. That’s what is so GREAT about the Amazing Action Alphabet. You don’t want them to just learn it momentarily, but you want them to be able to retain it for use at a later time! Love the concept!

DustyDuncan811@gmail.com

172 Norma Lawrence July 31, 2012 at 10:29 pm

The use of mini books is a plus and the fact that they can listen and then put to actions.

173 Nancy Brunner July 31, 2012 at 10:42 pm

You can never get enough of seeing, hearing, and doing :)

174 Emily July 31, 2012 at 11:02 pm

Looks like and engaging, straight forward program. I can imagine preschoolers loving it! The cost seems reasonable too.

175 nora cash August 1, 2012 at 1:58 am

I love the fact that the children do the actions. I also like the price. It is very affordable for me to buy it myself.

176 Emily Alberi August 1, 2012 at 2:53 am

I LOVE that this program teaches through “seeing, hearing, and doing.” I am starting a preschool next month and just ordered the whole program to use as part of my curriculum. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for!

177 Ashley S August 1, 2012 at 3:14 am

This looks like a much better, and updated program similar to Animated Alphabet. The website talked about how letter names and sounds are abstract, and what they stated made sense. I would love to give this a try with my preschoolers!!!

178 Diane Jones August 1, 2012 at 5:40 am

I have no formal training to teach but seeing how easy this works and how effective it is with the children is wonderful. See, hear, say, and do is brillant!

179 Lee Ann August 1, 2012 at 7:07 am

I love the concept of seeing, hearing and doing. My kids would love the “doing” aspect! Shaping themselves into a letter! So creative! I hope I win!

180 Tammy Borchardt August 1, 2012 at 7:18 am

This is a great idea for teaching letters and letter sounds. It is always best to appeal to all of the senses! I also like the fact that there are other workbooks/cds that when used together cover just about everything related to pre-reading. Using these books and related activities would be a great way to begin a lifetime Love of Reading!

181 Jerre August 1, 2012 at 7:20 am

This looks like a fun way to teach letters and their sounds. I want to try these.

182 Stephanie August 1, 2012 at 7:23 am

See+Hear+Do = Learning So simple, yet describes what we all know , multisensory teaching leads to the most effective learning. Thanks for sharing!
Stephanie

183 Ellen C August 1, 2012 at 7:29 am

I like the story with each letter emphasizing the sound of that letter. The pictures of the letters with the animals in them are great. There are lots of activities that could go with each letter/sound.

184 Lisa August 1, 2012 at 7:29 am

I saw that they believe that the best way to learn is to see + hear + do. That is so true!!

185 Stacey August 1, 2012 at 7:32 am

Love this! From the website I was reminded that children retain up to 90% of what the see/hear/do/say and significantly less if one if those ways of learning is removed. I also glanced through the reviews and read many positive reviews from both parents and seasoned teachers. Sounds like a terrific program that makes letter learning less of a drill and kill and more like a playful, fun activity.

186 Karen August 1, 2012 at 7:36 am

See + hear+ do = learning! Exactly the way a preschooler learns! Love it.

187 Jesslee Engelhardt August 1, 2012 at 7:40 am

SEE HEAR DO – Special Education Teachers DREAM
A wonderful program Love it involves kinaesthetics, – its proven if children are actively engaged they tend to process and retain more information.
I am involved in teaching autistic children in Nepal
This is a wonderful way speakers of a different language to learn english at an early age.

188 Marian Sefcik August 1, 2012 at 7:40 am

I teach in a Pre-K program where this would just be a fabulous addition. I especially like the action piece. This would be the perfect program for several children that I have in my mind right now.

189 Nicole Schink August 1, 2012 at 7:41 am

I love that it promotes early literacy and everyone who has used the program has seen immediate results and at a young age. It looks and sounds like a great program and I will be bringing it to the attention of my daycare director! Thank you for the chance to win!

190 Laurie August 1, 2012 at 7:46 am

See + Hear + Do = Learning. It makes sense to me!

191 Karen August 1, 2012 at 7:47 am

This program is successful because it uses a combination of seeing, hearing, and doing. This is exactly what researchers and educators say creates the most retention! I would love to win this!

192 Linda August 1, 2012 at 7:48 am

Great idea to use “sight” “sound” and “actions” to learn. Reaches learners thru multi learning styles.

193 Linda August 1, 2012 at 7:50 am

Great way to attract multi-learning styles: “sight” “sound” and “action”

194 Linda August 1, 2012 at 7:52 am

Great multi learning tool: “sight” “sound” and “action”

195 Martha Hughes August 1, 2012 at 7:52 am

This program uses elements that are crucial for preschoolers when they learn there senses. The products are also reasonably priced which is so important to teachers.

196 Adrienne August 1, 2012 at 7:56 am

I like how they use the familiarity of animals to help make the letters more familiar and understandable to children.

197 Coleen Cox August 1, 2012 at 7:57 am

“The combination of seeing + hearing + doing that = learning has been shown to be the most effective way to learn. Researchers and educators have found that people retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they see and hear, and up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do.”

This equation is important to each objective you approach in the classroom!

198 Doreen August 1, 2012 at 7:58 am

The See, Hear, Do multi sensory learning is always a plus!

199 Peggy August 1, 2012 at 7:58 am

As a retired educator, I know how important it is to include as many senses as possible in learning. I love the see-hear-do concept of learning. The flip chart, cd, and motions will help give preschoolers a solid basis for beginning their more formal education. I would like to give my grandchildren that experience.

200 Rebecca McDonald August 1, 2012 at 8:02 am

I love that there are 3 ways of learning used in this Amazing Action Alphabet.
We all learn differently and this uses visual, auditory and kinesthetic! Excellent way to reach all students. I read on the website that the program uses knowledge that the children already have, (animals), to help them learn the new concept of letters and why they make te sounds they make. Excellent! I’ve been working with children for 18 years and this sounds like a fabulous, simple way to reach children and teach them early literacy skills!

201 Nancy August 1, 2012 at 8:08 am

I appreciate the small size of this flip book. Easy to work next to a child or in a small group.

202 Carrie-Anne Irby August 1, 2012 at 8:13 am

I love the idea of seeing, hearing, and doing! Multiple ways of getting gets to learn! The fun action would be great from my special need kiddos who need lots of movement throughout the day and helps with “recall for the sound of the letter.”
Carrie-Anne

203 naomi sandel August 1, 2012 at 8:15 am

I love the way the amazing action alphabet program ties all things together. They have activities, little readers, flip chart and for my K kids I really like the handwriting connection. Of course the song and cd is amazing. It is absolutely incredible how children learn and retain what we have taught them through music and movement.

204 Suzanne Walter August 1, 2012 at 8:19 am

I love the idea you add motions to the alphabet to help them remember the letter sound. I love this!

205 Terry Virts August 1, 2012 at 8:22 am

People retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they see and hear, and up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do.

206 Michelle August 1, 2012 at 8:27 am

I have been teaching Pre-K for thirteen years, and I am always looking for new ways to introduce letters and letter sounds in my classroom. I love the idea of movement matching the letter and letter sounds. This looks fun and inviting for all children:-)

207 Debbie Rowland August 1, 2012 at 8:35 am

This program is amazing combining all three ways of learning:
seeing, hearing, and doing. It can be used with all types of learning styles. Even if I do not win, I will be purchasing the flip chart and CD to use in my Pre-K class this fall. My children are going to love this program! I can’t wait to introduce it to my fellow teachers. Thank you for highlighting this outstanding program and giving us the opportunity to win a copy!

208 Jenny L. August 1, 2012 at 8:37 am

This looks like a great program – all of the items are things I’ve been putting together from a variety of free resources and other programs – if I’d only known this existed! I like the fact that there are two additional activity books to supplement the learning with letter projects and writing activities! This is definitely on my wish list! Thanks for the review!

209 Gwen R August 1, 2012 at 8:43 am

What I learn and enjoyed about this product is the fact that its supports the theory that children learn using their senses.

210 Debbie August 1, 2012 at 8:44 am

I loved the pictures! The mini books are great – short, sweet and predictable with great pictures. I would love to have this program to help teach our kiddos who come in with no letter knowledge and help reinforce the ones who have the rote knowledge, but don’t have it embedded. Thanks!

211 Jennifer Smith August 1, 2012 at 8:47 am

Wow! This would be a great asset in my class. The flip cards with the different animals are so cute! “N the newt is naughty?” Love it!

212 Krista D. August 1, 2012 at 8:48 am

I wish this company did more than just the Alphabet. Prior knowledge is “Key”. This product is perfect for using that prior knowledge. They base their concept on knowledge that the learner already has (animal recognition).

213 Jessica Clayton August 1, 2012 at 8:48 am

I love how the cards do you differentiation for you! Multi-sensory learning is addressed without a thought! Thanks, Jessica Clayton, owner of Riverside Rhymes Home Family Day Care. jessica-clayton@hotmail.com

214 Natalie G August 1, 2012 at 8:59 am

I love how it combines all 3 senses– the 20/50/90% is a good to remember when teaching.

215 Robin August 1, 2012 at 9:05 am

amazing. see hear it, do it

216 Kelly Rose August 1, 2012 at 9:07 am

Wow! This looks amazing; see+hear+do=learning! I just got a job as a preschool teacher for this coming school year and I have been looking for a program just like this to use in my classroom! I’ve used the Phonics Dance with older students, but this is perfect for my preschoolers! Even if I don’t win, I think I’ll be purchasing this for my room. Thanks!

217 Hellen Root August 1, 2012 at 9:09 am

I love that they show the research how this method can really enhance the child learning. Great product. I will be using this!

218 Star Glover August 1, 2012 at 9:11 am

I listened to the sample songs and they sound fun. I totally agree that when you can use the 3 senses it helps plus it’s more fun to listen to a song, do motions as you look at the flip book than just listening to the teacher. See-hear-do is a fun way to learn:)

219 Connie B. August 1, 2012 at 9:11 am

I love that this program addresses many different learning styles. Great idea for Pre-K!

220 Julie August 1, 2012 at 9:14 am

Love the flip chart and stories focusing on the letter and sound it makes. great teaching tool for my preschool class..

221 Jennifer August 1, 2012 at 9:24 am

I really would love to win this flip chart and CD. I have been looking for a new phonics approach for my pre-schoolers. I work with 4 yr olds and this would be a fun way to introduce my letter of the week to them. I like to keep my kids moving and intrigued. If I do not win, I will be purchasing this set. Looks great. rnjlee@verizon.net
Thank you

222 Sheri Kelleher August 1, 2012 at 9:25 am

Thanks for introducing me to this great phonics program. I love how it uses auditory, visual and kinesthetic stimulators for learning success.

223 Julissa Carbonell August 1, 2012 at 9:27 am

What a great product! I completely agree, the formula for teaching little ones a concept is “seeing + hearing + doing that.” Little guys are always so busy moving around so why not make it educational for them? I can a test that the formula also works for some adults as well. ;-)
Thanks Deborah for giving your followers new ways to inprove their teaching. Looking forward to a great school year implementing ideas from your site.

224 Lynelle Ricard August 1, 2012 at 9:29 am

I love the name of this company, a great description of early learning. I wish I could of peeked inside the handwriting book.mIt looks like a wonderful and comprehensive program:)

225 Debbie Henry August 1, 2012 at 9:32 am

Perfect learning environment for little ones when you engage the eyes, ears, and hands. Thank you for informing me of this program. I am considering buying it.

226 Kristin August 1, 2012 at 9:32 am

I love the see,hear and do approach. I have 2 toddlers and will be starting a pre K program at home with them soon. This approach will help them both to learn in their own ways. this struck a cord with me: Researchers and educators have found that people retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they see and hear, and up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do.

227 Kathee smith August 1, 2012 at 9:43 am

This approach is research- based multi- sensory similar to those approaches used to teach students with dyslexia. I am using the Orton- Gillingham approach now and this would be a great supplement! Hope I win!

228 mary August 1, 2012 at 9:45 am

Perfect combination of seeing, hearing, and doing to acquire alphabet knowledge. And it’s fun too!

229 Marleah August 1, 2012 at 9:46 am

When I clicked to search inside the flip chart, the first page I got was “F – The Flamingo Freezes.” What a fun story that must be to read aloud! Great way to help kids love learning!

230 Gail P August 1, 2012 at 9:52 am

I learned that there are several texts in the series. I am interested in using them for RTI with kindergarten students who are low in letter and sound identification. This program could be implemented by a paraprofessional as well as professional staff. The variety of activities will be engaging.

231 Joy McBride August 1, 2012 at 10:03 am

Looks like it could be an effective teaching tool. Love how it involves different learning styles!

232 Kara August 1, 2012 at 10:04 am

I love this! I have been doing a similar phonics program that I acame up with and my 2s and 3s love it, but the cd would be such a great reinforcment!

233 Kimberly August 1, 2012 at 10:09 am

I love that they also have Mini Books. Great products!!

234 Staci Habighorst August 1, 2012 at 10:11 am

After reading that 90% is retained when using the see, say, hear and do method this would be an awesome tool to use. Thanks for the chance to win.

235 Rosanne August 1, 2012 at 10:12 am

At the site I thought their “Sing Along” CD would be great to use with my three year-old class! Sure would love to win the flip chart to get me started with great early literacy experiences.

236 Manju Sara Jacob August 1, 2012 at 10:16 am

This is such an amazing phonics program which is ready to go especially for an SLP like me. Multisensory approach to the best!

237 Brooke August 1, 2012 at 10:21 am

I am searching for an alphabet activity to do throughout the year with my three year old class. The activity I did last year was not supported as I hoped by my director, so this activity would be perfect to keep my students involved while making learning fun, which is all it should be at this age and this product does a good job with that! Thanks for sharing, I am thankful I came across this. Thanks for this opportunity!

238 Jessica C August 1, 2012 at 10:24 am

Love this system especially the activity books. As a former preschool teacher I knew it was hard for some kids to stay focused on the subject. With projects, stories and snacks that go with the subject/letter – I can see that it would help capture their attention better and for longer periods. I am now a stay at home mom and would love this to help ready my little guy for his start in school.

239 Crystal Young August 1, 2012 at 10:30 am

“The combination of seeing + hearing + doing that = learning has been shown to be the most effective way to learn. Researchers and educators have found that people retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they see and hear, and up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do. This program is so successful because it uses this combination of all three.” – RESEARCH DOESN’T LIE!

240 Crystal Young August 1, 2012 at 10:31 am

OOPS! I hit a button, before I was done. Meant to also say, thank you for bringing my attention to this product.

241 Sandra Coad August 1, 2012 at 10:41 am

This sounds so fantastic. I am a preschool teacher in a public school system so the pressure to have my students know letters before kindergarten is enormous. I have used Dr. Jean’s Alphahardy song to teach but I am always looking for more musical alphabet to teach the kids. Even if I don’t win, I will buy this book myself. I love your website.

242 Jen S. August 1, 2012 at 10:48 am

I read that “amazing results occur after just one experience” and I really believe that could happen with one of my struggling preschoolers. He needs action to learn and I would love to try this with him!

243 Ashley August 1, 2012 at 10:51 am

I love that each of the letters in the alphabet have a familiar look of an animal!

244 Jen Best August 1, 2012 at 10:52 am

I teach special needs grades 1-3 and this would be perfect for my classroom; my students learn best with the techniques that are provided with this letter/sound recognition packet. This packet includes the auditory, kinesthetic, and visual support that my students thrive on. I also love how this builds on prior knowledge and also takes into consideration for a concrete interpretation of letters considering they are often so abstract. This would be a wonderful addition to my classroom; most of my student’s goals are letter/sound recognition. Pick me!

245 Janet T. August 1, 2012 at 10:52 am

I’ve been trying to make up songs that have motions for the letters. This sounds great!

246 cherise August 1, 2012 at 11:03 am

I particularly like the audio samples and the flip chart. Love to integrate literacy throughout the day- this would be a great addition!

247 Suzanne Morales August 1, 2012 at 11:13 am

I learned that the program uses seeing, hearing, and doing to teach the sounds and the letters. I love that it comes with a CD and uses songs, cards and movement!! I think this will work really good for my boys.

248 Christy Qualin August 1, 2012 at 11:16 am

Any quality product that reinforces early literacy gets my attention. I really like the concept of using multiple learning modes. Most of us do retain better when we actually “do” so this program seems like it would be fun and educational. I like the mini-books, too!

249 Nichole Moore August 1, 2012 at 11:19 am

What a great way to engage different kinds of learners! Visual, kinesthetic, auditory, all at the same time.

250 Anne O'Connell August 1, 2012 at 11:21 am

I too have a mixed age group of 3-PreK ! I am always looking for fun ways to introduce concepts that would benefit the whole group. This program looks like the perfect way to implement a developmentally appropriate alphabet curriculum for my group – I’d love to win and use!!! Thanks for the opportunity!

251 Abigail deVries August 1, 2012 at 11:22 am

I love the idea of using motions/movement in order to facilitate learning. I also love using music in the preschool classroom!

252 liz kirkland August 1, 2012 at 11:22 am

The see, hear and do learning program works so well because it uses a combination of visual, auditory and kinesthetic stimulation and research has shown this to be the most effective way of learning.

253 Ms. Tammy August 1, 2012 at 11:25 am

I have been looking for a way to keep my preschoolers attention during our circle time. The Amazing Action Alphabet CD and Flip Chart from The See Hear Do Company have great short stories that I think the kids will love and it will help them stay focused on the task of the letter of the week! Thanks for reviewing this and posting about it.

254 Debra Fierro August 1, 2012 at 11:33 am

A teacher in our class has been using Alphabet lane song and picture cards for the last few years and this past year she incorporated action to many of the letters after she read research similar of which is mentioned on the Amazing Action Alphabet website. It amazed me how quickly and automatically the children picked up on the action. On the website I also like the mini book!
“Researchers and educators have found that people retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they see and hear, and up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do.”

255 Sandy S. August 1, 2012 at 11:34 am

I like the upbeat music that goes with the flip chart. I find that it helps the children to remember the concepts. I also like the combination of the see-hear and do because the more we use different senses in combination, the stronger the neural pathways are built in the brain!

256 Marcia August 1, 2012 at 11:35 am

I love this….”Researchers and educators have found that people retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they see and hear, and up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do.” It’s the whole premise of what we do in the early childhood classroom! More importantly, it translates across the entire eduational spectrum and on to us as adults. If we could just get this message across to the WORLD!!!!!

This program looks fresh, new, and fun…it would be a great addition to my classroom!!

257 Suzanne Morales August 1, 2012 at 11:42 am

p.s. I love that this program is affordable!

258 Kala August 1, 2012 at 11:44 am

This is so great! Perfect for all learning types!

259 Deidra Daniels August 1, 2012 at 11:47 am

This is the best way for children to retain information, by repetition. Having the children see it, say it and repeat it is extremely important.

260 Christine August 1, 2012 at 11:56 am

Researchers and educators have found that people retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they see and hear, and up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do. This program is so successful because it uses this combination of all three.
I would love to use this in my classroom and share with the other teachers at the preschool where I work!

261 Amelia Schaeffer August 1, 2012 at 11:56 am

I love how this program incorporates seeing, hearing, and doing in learning the alphabet. They hear the letter’s name and sound within an engaging story; they see an animal (always a favorite with kids) shaped like the letter; and they get to perform an action that facilitates instant recall of the letter and its sound. I would love to win this! Tapping into multiple learning modalities always facilitates greater learning. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

amelias.schaeffer@gmail.com

262 Diane Miesner August 1, 2012 at 12:02 pm

I love that this program is based on see+hear+do=learning concept. I would definitely use this in my classroom when teaching phonics.

263 Jan August 1, 2012 at 12:15 pm

This will be my second year to teach Pre-K. I would love to add these activities to my ELA time. I love the see, hear and do activities. I know the students would too.
jan.hargrove@gpisd.org

264 Nicole Torstvet August 1, 2012 at 12:30 pm

I love this idea! The combination of hearing + seeing + doing is a great concept. I will be sharing this site with my sister who is an elementary school teacher and tutor. I will also be purchasing these for Christmas gifts.

Nicoletorstvet@yahoo.com

265 Natalie Thompson August 1, 2012 at 12:33 pm

See + Hear + Do = Knowledge. I couldn’t agree more! I would love to use this in my preschool classroom.

266 Lisa Hause August 1, 2012 at 12:41 pm

Love the Flip Book and the stories! Great for circle time and the end of the day wrap up of the days activities. I love how seeing, hearing, saying and doing are all incorporated in one! I really like your site, as a preschool teacher I am always looking for ways to update my teaching. Thank you! Lisa H.

267 Brooke H August 1, 2012 at 12:41 pm

I think that phonics is so important for young learners. Having them prepared with knowing all the letters and sounds before entering grade school is wonderful (even if it is just exposure for some)!! Love the seeing, hearing, doing as well- so important for the little guys!!!!! Also the CD, kids learn a lot through music!!

268 Camille Borup August 1, 2012 at 12:56 pm

I love how you use the senses to learn the alphabet. I will purchase this if I don’t win.

269 Jolie Delja August 1, 2012 at 1:15 pm

It is so important for children with prenatal alcohol exposure to learn using multiple modes (seeing, hearing, doing), plus repetition, repetition, repetition. This program would be so useful for our SEEDS Program for School Readiness.
Thank you for sharing this tool with us!

270 shila russell August 1, 2012 at 1:25 pm

I am a speech-language pathologist, and I love that the Amazing Action Alphabet series uses kinesthetic and sensory learning.

271 Cindy August 1, 2012 at 1:31 pm

Super fun and super simple! Developmentally appropriate and reasonably priced, what more could you ask for. Thanks for sharing!

272 mary smith August 1, 2012 at 1:31 pm

I love the flip chart and think it would be great with my prek class…i also like the cd since music makes such a difference in the way they learn and retain information!! thanks for this chance at this product
!

273 Joy Smith August 1, 2012 at 1:52 pm

I have been doing preschool for 21 years. I change things every year so they are learning in new exciting and different ways. This sounds like a very fun way of teaching them their letters and letter sounds. I would love to win and see how the children learn with this program and concept.

274 Clara Wines August 1, 2012 at 1:54 pm

I would like to have this learning tool! It will reach all of the different styled learners. I covers all aspects! Wonderful product!!!!!

275 Lori Summers August 1, 2012 at 2:08 pm

I love the see-do-hear method of learning. I know that I personally learn better that way. I also liked the way they said that children will often ask “Why does A make the sound it makes? Why does it look like that?” and other questions and the usual answer is “it just does.” I am guilty of that! My daughter just turned 3 and while she knows her alphabet and letter recognition, she is now wanting to learn what letter words start with and how to spell certain words. This would be great for her!!

276 Heather Mandell August 1, 2012 at 2:16 pm

I love the Seeing + Hearing + Doing = Learning image. It’s so true and such a great method for educating our little ones about the Alphabet and Phonics. I’m curious about the handwriting set too. Thanks for the giveaway.

heathermandell@yahoo.com

277 Kaila Gordon August 1, 2012 at 2:30 pm

I like the simplicity of the flip chart combined with the creativity. The rebus breakdown is really cute on the website and makes explaining it to parents a lot easier. I am definitely interested in using this during Morning Meeting and Writing Workshop.

278 Connie Cannon August 1, 2012 at 2:31 pm

This program is so successful because it uses this combination of seeing, hearing and doing! I can’t wait to try it.

279 Amanda August 1, 2012 at 2:33 pm

Love how it includes great actions! Thanks for you wonderful blog, Deborah! I’m always pinning your fun ideas!

280 Cheryl August 1, 2012 at 2:40 pm

Love this product!!! I’ve seen a similar one called zoo phonics but this one is very cute!! I love the wall charts with both lower and uppercase letters. I also like that it shows the direction for handwriting which would be great to post I’m my Headstart class room! I want to win!!!

281 Linda Cunningham August 1, 2012 at 2:47 pm

What a great idea! The combination of movement and music is a wonderful way for children to learn. I like the size of the flip chart-it looks easy to use during circle time.

282 Kristina August 1, 2012 at 2:50 pm

What a great idea! I love the song and movement part! My daughter would love this!!

283 Courtney August 1, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Thank you so much for offering this giveaway! I definitely agree with this statement on the See Hear Do Company’s site: “Learning a new concept is best achieved by relating the new material to previously learned concepts.”

284 Lisa Howie August 1, 2012 at 2:51 pm

I typically shy away from “canned curriculum” for preschool children, but I like the way you implemented it. Thanks for the giveaway!

285 Hawley Anderson August 1, 2012 at 3:00 pm

I love the idea of actually doing the alphabet. The letters being animals is great also.

286 Amber August 1, 2012 at 4:11 pm

See, hear, do! Great to combine all! Would love to give the activities a try!

287 Katie Bowmar August 1, 2012 at 4:13 pm

A powerful way to learn letters and sounds:
See+Hear+Do=Learning!

288 Karen Drolet August 1, 2012 at 4:16 pm

I have used this teaching tehnique for years combining all ways of learning: seeing, hearing, doing. Will purchase this if I don’t win.

289 Libby August 1, 2012 at 4:50 pm

I would love to win this. I’ve been looking for something to use with my mixed age classroom. I read about See+Hear+Do=Learning. This looks GREAT! Thanks!

290 Toyia Williams August 1, 2012 at 5:32 pm

The product will be very good for my pre-k students. From what researchers and educators we retain 20% of what we hear, 50% of what we see and hear, and 90% of what we see, hear, say, and do.

291 Barbara August 1, 2012 at 5:36 pm

We used the amazing action alphabet in our classroom last year for our mixed group ages 3,4 and 5. The music is catchy and almost silly and the kids loved it and happily participated in the actions. We will definitely use it again this year.

292 Twyla McDonald August 1, 2012 at 5:53 pm

It looks like this is all expressed in upper case letters. Is that the way you recommend beginning letter introduction?

293 Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. August 1, 2012 at 5:54 pm

No – I recommend using both upper and lowercase letters – not one over the other. I used this more to focus on sounds of letters rather than letter formation. We use many other opportunities for letter recognition and writing.

294 Harae August 1, 2012 at 6:07 pm

I value this method of teaching because I find that by engaging my students, especially those who struggle with sound & letter correspondence, with interactive activities helps them to learn more effectively.

295 Virginia Scott August 1, 2012 at 6:35 pm

Proven fact that 90% of learning is accomplished when we see, hear and do and this program does all this.

296 Sharon August 1, 2012 at 6:35 pm

I like the flip chart and the activites for each day. A good way to incorporate phonics for my children.

297 Cheryl Quillman August 1, 2012 at 6:52 pm

I teach both a two-year-old and a three-year-old class on seperate days. I looked through the sample of the activity book and could see using it and the CD in both my classes to teach the alphabet to my munchkins. I would love to add this to my classroom equipment. You find the coolest things :-)

298 Chris August 1, 2012 at 6:52 pm

The flip chart looks great. Perfect to use with my pre-K students this fall.
Love the 3 senses approach.

299 Michelle August 1, 2012 at 7:19 pm

Learning made fun!!! Taking one learned concept and adding to it to allow the child to better understand and have fun! Like others if I don’t win this it will be a must have for my preschool classroom. Early literacy skills are so important to achieve successful reading. Thanks!

300 Tommie Sue Schindler August 1, 2012 at 7:29 pm

I was impressed that this program involves seeing, hearing, and doing + music.

301 Kathy August 1, 2012 at 7:57 pm

I love how this program includes action with the visual and auditory learning. This would reallt appeal the the children in my class.

302 tracey August 1, 2012 at 8:05 pm

I love the three areas, see, hear and do.

303 Heather King August 1, 2012 at 8:20 pm

My husband and I are planning on homeschooling our daughter through the preschool ages before she starts school. I think the Amazing Action Alphabet will be a wonderful way for us to teach us letters and the sounds they make. As a speech-language pathologist, I like that this product provides this information in three different ways to accommodate to all learning styles. I also like that kids hear the correct way to produce each letter sound by hearing it and not just hearing the name of the letter. I would definitely love to have this product in my bag of collections both at home and at work.

304 delana e. August 1, 2012 at 8:28 pm

See+hear+do=learning. Would love to win this!!!

305 Verlina August 1, 2012 at 8:49 pm

I love this quote from the webiste: Then we combine this with an approach that lets children see, hear, and do, engaging multiple senses and learning styles into the most powerful method for learning and retention we know.

I am a PreK teacher at a daycare where I have a class of sixteen 4 years. I’d love love love to have this program in my class!

306 Beth Ronan August 1, 2012 at 8:53 pm

I love the idea behind this product. I know whenever I encorporate singing and moving into our day, the children learn and remember!

307 jennifer taylor August 1, 2012 at 9:18 pm

I love this approach to learning. Using visual, auditory and kinesthetic stimulation keeps the children interested in learning.

308 Cynthia Hughes August 1, 2012 at 9:39 pm

I love that the program uses seeing, hearing and doing to introduce & then re-inforce what is being taught.

309 Buena Kaylor August 1, 2012 at 9:42 pm

Seeing, hearing and doing…the trinity of teaching! I would love to try this program in my room!

310 Chrissie August 1, 2012 at 10:00 pm

I love that they use animals for letter shapes!

311 monica August 1, 2012 at 10:24 pm

I am always on the lookout for brain based learning activities and this is one of them. We need more material that ties the eye, ear and brain especially for my non English speakers. I would love to give this program a try since I am already using another program similar to this one.

312 Faye E. Hunt August 1, 2012 at 11:05 pm

I love how children use their senses to learn the alphabet with this flip chart! The kinesthetic simulation would really hit home for my three year old son! — The child does a fun action with their body that produces instant recall for the sound of the letter.” Thanks for this very meaningful giveaway!

313 nancy fugate August 1, 2012 at 11:06 pm

Wow I love the whole brain approach , what a great program! Wishing me luck , well actually the children I teach

314 Em Mitchell August 1, 2012 at 11:25 pm

I learned that the See Hear Do Company has put a lot of thought into using all the senses to make “sense” of our alphabet.
I love the animal letters!

315 Tanya Yoder August 1, 2012 at 11:32 pm

This system would be great with my pre-school age children. It will help me build a platform for my student going into my local school district that uses LETRS, which has some similarities ( actions tied to sounds as displayed in video). Also, my love of teaching letters by sound and movement not just by sight.

316 Patti Kudlak August 2, 2012 at 12:26 am

This looks like a wonderful and fun way to learn. I really like how the children are involved with seeing, hearing and action. This benefits all types of learners. Thanks for the chance to win and thanks for all you do! :)

317 Ruth August 2, 2012 at 12:31 am

I am a Pre-school teacher – this would be a great, fun tool to teach the children the alphabet without making it too difficult for them to understand – what a great idea!! Thank you for the opportunity to win this give-away.

318 Nadine August 2, 2012 at 9:28 am

I have never seen a multi-sensory approach to learning the alphabet. Priceless. Id love to win this for my preschool classroom.

319 Leslie Scrivner August 2, 2012 at 5:58 am

I have been looking for a program like this for my pre-K class! I love that the letters are reinforced with the sound and actions! I also liked that the program was so comprehensive, including activities, handwriting, even snack ideas! I would love to win this great product!

320 Catherine Little August 2, 2012 at 8:42 am

The child does a fun action with their body
that produces instant recall for the
sound of the letter
(kinesthetic stimulation).
Looks like an awesome program!
catlittle713@gmail.com

321 Karen rojas August 2, 2012 at 10:11 am

See, hear and do…what an awesome way to teach letters, and phonics

322 Madison August 2, 2012 at 10:28 am

What a fun and enriching approach to instructional and retaining of our alphabet. I can’t wait to use this program with our early childhood classes in September. Your website is always inspiring and encouraging for us teachers working with such active and energetic young children. Thanks.

323 Kelly August 2, 2012 at 10:31 am

I love this program. See, hear do = Learning. Kids would have fun with this.
k58pow@aol.com

324 Lynn Fehn August 2, 2012 at 10:32 am

Love the idea of including the senses! What a great way to engage the students in learning by incorporating movement and letter sounds. The stories are short and have context that will keep the children’s interest and stimulate prereading skills. I definintely would use this in my 4yr. preschool classroom.

325 Michele August 2, 2012 at 10:33 am

WOW! I love the idea of the SeeHearDo program, and unlike so many other learning programs out there, they don’t charge you an arm and a leg! Great for people like myself who run a very small program (only three children) and have limited financial resources. My in home preschool children will love the Sing Along CD. “Watch your child’s knowledge of the letters and sounds blossom with 26 engaging and interactive songs!” I realized last year, while searching You-Tube for videos to reinforce our lesson plans, that my kids LOVE to dance and sing along to alphabet letter songs. So began my quest, for just the right songs. The SeeHearDo program is exactly what I am looking for! I really hope I win!!

326 Gail August 2, 2012 at 10:40 am

I teach in an inclusive 3-5 classroom. This program with see, hear and do covers all the bases with my little ones. It sounds fun and engaging no matter where children are developmentally.
glgagnon2000@yahoo.com

327 Susan Norton August 2, 2012 at 11:18 am

Interactive learning, active participation & use of senses provide the base for effective learning. This program employs all three. Love it!

328 Lauren Putnam August 2, 2012 at 11:24 am

I’ve been teaching preschool for thirty+ years. It’s becoming difficult to teach the core curriculum (with a push from k teachers to get those letters and sounds learned that was never there before) and still keep in line with the developmentally appropriate practices. Add to that I have an inclusion classroom.
This program may be just the ticket , multi- sensory/learning approach using music (which the kids love).
I enjoy following your blog and have come to value and trust your ideas and so your endorsement.

I have a 2yr old and 3yr old (and another baby on the way) and we do preschool at home. My 3 year old knows her letters and can spell her name, but now we need to work on letter sounds. I love the “see, hear, do” approach of the flip chart. Would love to win!

330 Celeste August 2, 2012 at 11:49 am

I would love to use the flip cards during circle time! I believe seeing, hearing, and doing are the cornerstones to a quality preschool experience.

331 Kimberly Nutting August 2, 2012 at 12:05 pm

Reading about this method really targets all the learning types. The focus on seeing, hearing, and doing makes this a product that solidifies understanding. Looking inside each of the books they offer was fun, and I also saw a video of a little girl reciting what she knew. Her memory was great, i think because she had these ways to remember. THis would be great to have with my preschoolers : )

332 Susan August 2, 2012 at 12:38 pm

I love that it has an activity book and mini-books for each letter as well. Some of my older 5s might enjoy the writing, too.

Thanks for sharing this, Deborah!

333 Ashley August 2, 2012 at 12:57 pm

I really love this flip book for introducing the alphabet. My 4 year old niece is working on her alphabet and this could really help her a lot! Especially since it’s interactive!

334 Michele Fortier August 2, 2012 at 2:01 pm

Thank you for sharing this link. I currently teach 3-4 year olds. Everything we do is hands on. This is a wonderful way to teach phonics through the senses!

335 Mary Mondor August 2, 2012 at 3:55 pm

I love that there are 3 parts in The Amazing Action Alphabet that helps the children learn!!

336 Sherri August 2, 2012 at 4:28 pm

I love the See, Hear, Do idea! That is so helpful for kids when learning something new.

337 Susan August 2, 2012 at 5:58 pm

I like that it has both a flip chart and a cd. Susan

338 Erin August 2, 2012 at 6:37 pm

what a fun way to teach your kids the abc letters and sounds. i love the little stories on the back of the flip cards – my daughter would love those! she is so interested and this would be a great way to teach her. :)

339 Samara Raygoza August 2, 2012 at 7:04 pm

Absolutely love it. I think it will help my ESL students very much. The movement part will help witg my young threes.

340 Kara Norris August 2, 2012 at 7:19 pm

I love the 3 fold system of hearing, seeing and doing to reinforce the learning process! Really helpful for active little boys! I would love to win and start using this in my home school curriculum!

341 Vivien August 2, 2012 at 7:31 pm

I would love to win this to use with my preschooler and the kids I watch. The CD sounds really exciting! I listened to the audio samples and K the kangaroo made me laugh, “K the kangaroo from Kansas kisses his kitten before going to Karate…” This looks like a very well thought out program and the look listen do aspect is wonderful. Thank you for the opportunity to win and for introducing me to an exciting product.

342 Diane Bode August 2, 2012 at 8:06 pm

I am very impressed with this program and would love to try it out. Having a flip chart and a cd helps also!

343 Kim August 2, 2012 at 8:48 pm

I was not able to listen to the song samples because I’m on a friends older computer… but I liked the graphics. We are using the Treasures Reading Program for Kindergarten which is good, but they do not make a connection between letters/animals. HM was a weaker program, but at least it had Alphafriends. I like to get my students physically involved with learning and this program seems to offer that opportunity. I think I could successfully implement it with the Treasures program and get more
“Bang for my Buck”!

344 Lauren August 2, 2012 at 8:50 pm

The combination of seeing + hearing + doing that = learning has been shown to be the most effective way to learn and this program does just that. Using multiple senses is truly the best way to learn!

345 Tina August 2, 2012 at 10:25 pm

I think this is a great idea. I loved the flip chart. F the flaiming freezes…f, f, f . I love how it tells a story –something that will interest the children!! Loved listening to samples on the CD too. Would love to win for use in my preschool classroom!

346 Lisa Hanley August 2, 2012 at 11:42 pm

Children recognize Animals at a very early age.
this looks like an awesome product

347 Aamna August 3, 2012 at 3:53 am

Research has shown that using multiple senses is the most effective way to learn. The success of this program is because it combines all three. The audio on the website of the child shows how much he enjoys saying the sounds of the alphabet and how enthusiastic he is doing it. The reviews from others on the webpage show that this can be taught as early as 2 years old to children and has benefited older children that may have difficulties learning the alphabet and its sounds. My son’s Pre-K teacher used a similar method like this and he really enjoyed learning from her. I can’t wait to try this with my 2 year old!

348 Holly Cousino August 3, 2012 at 9:35 am

The CD looks great too! I love how they have a song for each letter, plus it is on sale!

349 Sharyn August 3, 2012 at 10:04 am

I absolutely love the way this program utilizes something children are familiar with to teach the alphabet! I will purchase if I can’t win it!

350 Kristin August 3, 2012 at 10:36 am

In the past, I’ve been able to come up with actions for some of the letter sounds and I’ve seen kid retain those sounds better than others. Unfortunately I was unorganized and it didn’t go beyond that.

I love that this program has a visual and movement for each letter. It also looks like something I can incorporate into what I already do when teaching letters.

351 Shannon August 3, 2012 at 11:54 am

I liked the see it, hear it, do it, learn it idea. The kids really seem to gain something by the repetition.

352 Karen August 3, 2012 at 2:25 pm

This is great! I would love to use this in my circle time. I have 2-5 year olds and I feel they would all enjoy doing the actions! I too think I would play the music during playtimes.

353 Karen August 3, 2012 at 3:44 pm

Yes! Seeing, hearing, and doing! Plenty of activity and fun for focused learning. Looks great!

354 Karen August 3, 2012 at 3:46 pm

Seeing, hearing, and doing! All vital for our little ones to learn! Looks great.

355 Kimberly Rich August 3, 2012 at 3:59 pm

I love all the games on this site…. I think the circle time itens are great. I teach the three year olds and I know these would come in handy with them..

356 MommyPage August 3, 2012 at 6:58 pm

This looks like a wonderful giveaway! These games are perfect for the kids.

357 barbara August 3, 2012 at 9:17 pm

my preschool would love these!!! every learner can benefit from this program. thanks

358 Leslie Romine August 3, 2012 at 9:28 pm

Looks like a great product. Its interesting that they can learn the alphabet by “doing”, I’m excited to see which actions are put with the letters!

359 Jane August 4, 2012 at 12:00 am

I love these for my preschoolers. When it’s in their hands it’s in their minds. Seeing, hearing and doing!

360 Cheryl Carreon August 4, 2012 at 12:08 am

Love that it combines so many of the intelligences….. music, visual, auditory, kinesthetic to make learning fun!

361 Laurie Eberli August 4, 2012 at 12:58 am

I love incorporating music along with learning and have actually been looking for a song to teach for each letter. The flip chart would be an awesome addition and something new to try during circle time.

362 Linda August 4, 2012 at 10:26 am

I never really thought before about how abstract (and disconnected) letter shapes, names, and sounds can be for young learners. I like how this program ties it together with an animal in the shape of the letter and the letter sound corresponding with the sound this animal makes. I love the idea of a story explaining the sound. How clever!

363 Eliza August 4, 2012 at 2:33 pm

I can see how the mixed modalities (visual, auditory, motoric) combined
with a funny/appealing delivery would be effective. I’d love to try it!

364 Melissa August 4, 2012 at 5:17 pm

I am going back to teaching preschool after many years being a SAHM. This will come in handy. love it.
The child does a fun action with their body
that produces instant recall for the
sound of the letter
(kinesthetic stimulation).

365 carly glover August 4, 2012 at 6:43 pm

i love that it includes movement in learning. i want my kids to enjoy learning!

366 Sarah Davis August 4, 2012 at 6:52 pm

I am super excited to find something for a non traditional learner! George is learning at home this year because he struggled in a mainstream school last year, and the ‘Action Alphabet’ may very well be just what we need.

367 Erika August 4, 2012 at 9:40 pm

I used to teach so I know that adding a kinesthetic aspect to their learning will really help the concept “stick” in their mind better. I love that they are touching on various teaching styles.

368 Julie August 4, 2012 at 11:02 pm

I came across the Amazing Action Alphabet a few months ago as I was looking for new ideas to help my 4 year old learn the alphabet in a fun way and retain it! Their website says “the combination of seeing + hearing + doing that = learning has been shown to be the most effective way to learn. Researchers and educators have found that people retain 20% of what they hear, 50% of what they see and hear, and up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do.” As an educator myself, having taught first grade for 10+ years, I definitely agree! Plus, you are more likely to reach all learners when you use more than one style of teaching. Some kids are visual learners, others kinesthetic, etc. When you use all the senses, you are more likely to reach everyone, plus there is better chance for retention. And it’s more fun! Win-win situation! I’d love to win these items!

369 Tiffany August 5, 2012 at 1:19 pm

This is a great way for children to learn letter recognition. I absolutely love the flip chart. I plan on getting this even if I don’t win, but it would be nice to win. :)

370 Zalaka Ali-IBrahim August 5, 2012 at 2:03 pm

I love this product and
i do hope I win it! I think it is very interesting that people retain 90% of what they see,hear say and do! I have been using that concept with my kids and I did not know there was actual reseach done on it! However it is absolutely true! I would love to have these product!

371 Tjaydub August 5, 2012 at 7:51 pm

As I have commented before I work at a center which believes in learning through play this includes learning the alphabet. It has been a challenge for me with three year olds to keep them entertained enough during group time and to actually have them to absorb the materials that we are going over. What I love about this is that it addresses all of the ways people learn visually, auditory and kinetically. I know it will be fun for me AND this students because I know if I’m bored the kids are bored. Either way if I don’t win, I will be purchasing this myself, it looks like just what I’ve been searching for!

372 Amy August 5, 2012 at 8:22 pm

I like how this program combines seeing, hearing, and doing to teach phonics.

373 Kathleen Pecic August 5, 2012 at 8:24 pm

Love the organizational aspect of the flip chart…Much better than flashcards!

374 Karen A August 5, 2012 at 9:21 pm

I love how this approaches learning through different learning styles which ensures that more children will be engaged in the lessons. Also students are more likely to retain what they have learned when it is presented in a fun, positive way. I have heard of another product using a similar approach, but I like the flip chart rather than flashcards, the CD, and I like the story characters in this product. I love the idea of using songs to reinforce the lessons, and a CD which can be played the background during playtime would be great! The fact that the letter sounds and shapes are introduced first, before the letter name, is a great concept. Learning to read involves recognizing the shape of the letter and knowing the sound that it makes. The name of the letter is secondary to those just beginning to learn to read, I believe. I have been hoping to start a new way to introduce letters and their sound to my preschoolers this year and I think this is it! Hope to win. Thanks!

375 Emily August 5, 2012 at 10:40 pm

I learned that people retain up to 90% of what they see, hear, say, and do…and this program combines all there teaching styles to teach children.

376 shelley August 5, 2012 at 11:19 pm

i studied linguistics and it was interesting to read about sign and symbol and how children have to learn to associate one with the other.

377 Maggie Yant August 5, 2012 at 11:39 pm

I love that this program combines seeing, hearing and doing to address all learning styles and keep it fun for the kids! I like the idea of each animal having a name that is the same as the letter. Ex. the alligator’s name is “A”. Such a cute idea! I sure hope I win!!

378 Ashley S August 6, 2012 at 12:25 am

I love this. My job uses an age-inappropriate method to teach my group the Alphabet. I love the idea of the see, do and hear approach; engaging the children in this new concept by using prior knowledge and involving all of their senses. They learn and don’t even realize it!

379 stacy August 6, 2012 at 2:50 am

.The Amazing Action Alphabet takes the already familiar look of an animal and bends it into the shape of an abstract letter

380 jewel August 6, 2012 at 7:28 am

I love the music! I also like how compact and easy to use it is.
I will be teaching preschool for the first time and would love to try this!

381 Susan August 6, 2012 at 7:32 am

If I don’t win this I will still be purchasing. I love the idea of using several modalities. Children all learn in different ways. My preschool lacks a real curriculum so this will be great!

382 Lakisha Reid August 6, 2012 at 7:33 am

I love the whole child teaching approach and these Action Alphabet cards support that. I would LOVE to win this for my classroom.

383 Holly August 6, 2012 at 7:34 am

I love how the Amazing Action Alphabet uses different senses to promote the learning of the letters and their sounds. This will help the students learn and retain the ABC’s much better.

384 peggy grantham August 6, 2012 at 7:57 am

As a preschool teacher I find this amazing easy for the teacher and the children. Young children learn with their senses and this uses hearing, seeing and touching.

385 Deleana August 6, 2012 at 7:59 am

I have used the products of this company before. The methods are effective and create interest and enthusiasm in the students.

386 LeeAnn Veinotte August 6, 2012 at 8:01 am

Because my school is “hands on” activities, the Amazing Action Alphabet book looks interesting for my children to put characters together in letter form. What a great idea!

387 Carolynne Schmidt August 6, 2012 at 8:10 am

I would love to use this in my special education classroom. It combines all of the senses and looks like fun!

388 Diane Quigley-Clune August 6, 2012 at 8:41 am

I love how the program uses all three senses which has shown to be the most successful way children learn.
I introduce a letter a week to my class of 4 and 5 year olds so this would fit in perfectly.
Thanks for giving me a chance to win.

389 s maxymuk August 6, 2012 at 8:50 am

It is a great idea to use with weekly themes!

390 Beth August 6, 2012 at 8:58 am

Movement and learning together……..perfect! Hope I get a chance to try this program in my classroom.

391 Danielle Smith August 6, 2012 at 9:01 am

I absolutely love the idea of the the seeing, hearing and doing! I feel this would be a great contribution to my weekly letter orientation!

392 Phyllis Swinehart August 6, 2012 at 9:02 am

I love the actions of each letter. It really gets the kids involved.

393 Natalie August 6, 2012 at 9:10 am

See + Hear + Do = Learning! Phonics learning for the preschool child. Recently having been at area training, any way to connect learning to the child (DO!) makes for an experience that will last a lifetime!

394 Patty Carrera August 6, 2012 at 9:14 am

Love the seeing – hearing – doing!! This is the way children learn. Would love this in my special needs classroom.

395 Amy August 6, 2012 at 9:22 am

I teach three year olds, this would be perfect for them to learn the alphabet. The actions are great to keep them motivated. Thanks

396 Robin August 6, 2012 at 9:31 am

I love it, I see so much fun and have ideas how to use this in may ways.

397 Marina Schlinke August 6, 2012 at 9:35 am

What it says on the website is so true…children do learn better by combining seeing, hearing, and doing! What a great tool to add to any classroom.

398 Pam Peterson August 6, 2012 at 10:23 am

I love how they have incorporated several ways of learning into this program. Children learn in so many different ways. Having the seeing, hearing and doing concepts will reinforce what they are learning.

399 K.Weisner August 6, 2012 at 10:26 am

One more tool to get my kids on the road to reading….count me in. Thanks for the giveaway!

400 Marian Sefcik August 6, 2012 at 10:27 am

I teach 2 Pre-K classes and what a great addition to the curriculum this would be. It addresses all modes of learning. Great product.

401 Mary August 6, 2012 at 10:39 am

It looks like a great way to teach the alphabet by using all the senses. Brain research has shown that you engage the brain if you are moving! Thanks for offering the giveaway .

402 Robin S. August 6, 2012 at 12:19 pm

Thank you for this opportunity to win this flip book.

We retain 20% of what we hear.
We retain 50% of what we hear and see.
We retain 90% of what we hear, see, and do.

403 Lacey N August 6, 2012 at 1:29 pm

Learning a new concept is best achieved by relating the new material to previously learned concepts.

404 Chris Mortenson August 6, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Love the seeing, listening and doing steps. That way you can reach all learning styles. Would be great addition to my classroom.

405 BJ August 6, 2012 at 4:12 pm

What a way to get the children to learn the alphabet especially when it includes movements this will help them to catch on in no time! i really could use this product with my pre-schoolers!

406 Taylor August 6, 2012 at 4:32 pm

I love this! Children learn by seeing, hearing, and doing and this is perfect for teaching the alphabet that way!

407 Olympia Silva August 6, 2012 at 5:40 pm

This is a great way for children to remember letters. On the website the child not only sees the letters and states what she sees she also demonstrates actions the letters can make. Great idea. My three’s would love this activity especially in small group.

408 NW Homesteader August 6, 2012 at 6:58 pm

I love the beautiful wall charts and sing a long cd!

409 Monica August 6, 2012 at 7:01 pm

The children will think they’re playing while they’re actually learning. Motions will help them remember.

410 Heather Browning August 6, 2012 at 7:52 pm

“The most powerful way to teach letters and sound. See + hear + do = Learning We retain 20% of what we hear. We retain 50% of what we hear and see. We retain 90% of what we hear, see, and do.”

411 Gwen Green August 6, 2012 at 8:44 pm

This looks like a fantastic way to teach the younger ones! I love it! I would love to win this for my new preschool. Thanks for introducing it to me.
One thing I read on the site was:
The child does a fun action with their body that produces instant recall for the sound of the letter (kinesthetic stimulation).

412 Becky McGinnis August 6, 2012 at 8:57 pm

I’m working with a three-year-old who has speech apraxia. The constant reiteration of sounds in this program is awesome!

413 Kathy D'Agostino August 6, 2012 at 10:08 pm

See, hear, say, and do! I’m a Family Child Care Provider with a mixed age group. I’d love to win this flip chart for my group! If I don’t win, I’ll buy it!
