Alphabet Beats is a multi-sensory handwriting program for ages 2 1/2 to 8. We chose to review the lowercase DVD. Each lesson is only about 5 minutes long and moves quickly & smoothly from one activity to another. Lessons are taught through visuals, auditory/rhythm, and repetition. This program has also been proven very effective for children with special needs like Autism, PDD, ADD/ADHD, and Down Syndrome.
There are many things that I like about this product, but my favorite is that I can participate with Sassyfrass (5), but I don’t have to teach the lessons. With 5 kiddos to coordinate, my brain can turn to mush by the end of the day. It is so nice to just sit down and view each lesson and have FUN with my little one. (The youngest can sometimes fall through the cracks as we cram to get the older kids’ essentials in.)
You can view the free downloads for these DVDs HERE.

The Nitty Gritty:
- $35 each or $64.99 for both
Value: These are not cheap, but I think you get what you pay for.
See what my TOS Crew Mates have to say about Alphabet Beats!
I received a free DVD for the purpose of writing my honest review. No other compensation was given.
