Another Breakthrough in Education

ATLANTA, Aug. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The TV Teacher, LLC(TM) announces the release of its third DVD: Strokes, Shapes & Scenes(TM). This new, innovative and fun educational video helps children learn pre-writing and creative drawing.

"This is a perfect 'kindergarten-readiness' tool! We're not just teaching shapes, but teaching how to recognize shapes around us, how to draw the shapes, and how to think creatively to make pictures out of them! There is simply nothing like this on the market," says Marnie Danielson, co-creator and occupational therapist.

Based upon the company's hit series, Alphabet Beats(TM), now being used in school systems across the country, this unique approach takes "kindergarten-readiness" tools to a whole new level! Jane Moss, a store manager of The School Box(TM), a regional retail chain that carries The TV Teacher programs says, "We have been anxiously awaiting this new DVD as we have already had many customer requests for it this summer. We just don't see many programs available that address this need."

Strokes, Shapes & Scenes, is divided into three developmental sections: one for "pre-writing" basic strokes; one for shapes which includes shape recognition, drawing the shapes, and creative thinking to expand them into functional pictures; and the last section on scenes, which encourages drawing such items as a house, trees, people, bikes, and more.

"Many young children struggle with abstract thinking," says Susan Ellis, co-creator and mother of two. "We wanted to develop a program that would spark that creative thought process using our video-modeling technique of visual demonstrations and fun rhythmic songs. My own two sons (ages 4 & 7) would never sit and draw; and now, because of watching this video, it is their FAVORITE thing to do! I find myself buying new markers for them every week! It produced better results than even I had thought possible!"

The TV Teacher's initial video, ALPHABET BEATS -- Writing UPPERCASE letters (2006); their second DVD, alphabet beats -- writing lowercase letters (April 2007); and its customized workbooks and video demonstrations can all be viewed on its company's website: . The TV Teacher has also been featured on NBC,, Advance Magazine for Occupational Therapy Practitioners, Marietta Daily Journal, and Atlanta Parent magazine, as well as many radio interviews across the country.
