It's Opposite Day in Elmo's World, as Sesame Street's cuddly red monster explores the meaning of "Up and Down," "Open and Close," and "Fast and Slow" in these three episodes.
Nobody teaches basic concepts better than Sesame Street, and preschoolers will nail the idea of opposites after being immersed in them in these entertaining episodes. Through repetition and humor, young viewers will quickly internalize the meaning of words that are opposites: they'll be happy watching the DVD and sad when it's over!
Even though the concept of opposites is too advanced for very young babies, it's never too early to expose them to new ideas. Elmo is so appealing, he'll have little ones enthralled, even if they don't understand everything he's talking about.
This DVD is a treasure trove of opposites, making it easy for preschoolers to grasp the idea. They'll enjoy exploring a wide array of things that open and close (everything from mouths to laptops) and go up and down (see-saws, pogo sticks) and fast and slow (race horses, snails). The silly jokes -- "What's it like being a yo-yo? Well, it has its ups and downs!" -- will keep preschoolers laughing, and they'll learn new expressions when Elmo says a snail is going "at a snail's pace" and a TV announcer discusses "fast-breaking" and "slow-breaking" news.
Most kids in this age group have mastered opposites and outgrown Sesame Street, but there's so much going on here, those on the younger end just may caught up in the action. They may especially interested in the e-mails Elmo receives!
