Fundamentals 2 is the second level of our educational video series. It builds upon many concepts introduced in Fundamentals and adds additional subjects for higher order thinking.
In reading, Fundamentals 2 reinforces letter recognition and phonetic letter sounds. Little words are formed phonetically, and built into simple sentences. Reading comprehension is demonstrated through a story about a cat and her friends, which is turned into a series of questions. The video introduces pre-writing by showing the strokes needed to form letters.
In math, little green star and his friends demonstrate geometry, addition and subtraction, sets of 10s, music and more. "Twinkle, twinkle little star" is used to teach the children rhythm and pitch. Thinking games include matching and categorization of objects and four types of analogies (including comparing objects and their function, and opposites). In science, animals are compared through their main body parts. Vegetables and fruits are explained as plants, parts of plants, and food.
The video shows realistic and animated segments, captivating a young mind and never speaking down to its young viewer.
