Since my children got the chance to review the first Team Umizoomi DVD, they have really taken a liking to the show. This new hit from Nickelodeon uses fun stories and characters to introduce children to basic math skills. When we got the chance to review the latest DVD in the series, Team Umizoomi: Journey to Numberland, Zackary and Benjamin were both excited. Here’s a brief synopsis:
Team Umizoomi is ready for action! Join Milli, Geo and Bot as they use their mighty math powers to save the day! Identify shapes and build a super flashlight to look for a Brachiosaurus, figure out missing numbers in a sequence to open a cave that holds a diamond key, climb up crystals in pattern order, and so much more!
Even though Zackary’s math skills are far more advanced than those featured on the DVD, he still enjoys the plotlines of the different shows. He likes actively participating in solving the problems that are presented on the show and he especially enjoys the combination of cartoon characters and real characters that makes this show so intriguing for children. Benjamin, at almost two, adores Team Umizoomi. He especially loves the counting and the music that the show contains. He loves singing along to the easy-to-remember songs!
This DVD contains a special double-length episode and two regular-length episodes of “mighty math powers.” The double-length The King of Numbers episode is definitely the highlight of the disc and was lots of fun for both my boys. Zackary loved watching Zilch the Wizard overcome his dislike of numbers after learning about how to use them. “He didn’t like numbers, Mom, but that was because he didn’t know about them!” Zackary explained to me in excitement.
Team Umizoomi: Journey to Numberland is a fun DVD for young preschoolers and is a great way to introduce basic math concepts. If you have children under five in the house, check it out for yourself and let your kids have fun learning more about math.
