Back to School Fun with Magic Whiteboard
School is in session for some and starting soon where I live, so I thought…
There was one last DVD from Nickelodeon that I hadn’t shared with you all and then there are a few more that released in July I think you must know about! There are a number of DVD releases from Paramount Home Entertainment and Nickelodeon each month and I plan to share them with you as soon as possible, this means either shortly after release date or shortly before release date. In this case, I am sharing a bit after the release date.
Team Umizoomi 1,2,3..

The Umi Team is not complete without their Umi Friends (home viewers), who help the team along the way while practicing various math skills. Set to a soundtrack of preschool-friendly pop songs, the series is designed to build upon preschoolers’ conceptual understanding of math as they are exposed to core mathematical concepts like numbers, counting, computations, measurement, patterns and shapes.

Victorious Season One: Volume One

From her first day at the school, however, Tori feels out of place among the talented students, especially mean diva Jade (Elizabeth Gillies, Broadway’s 13). But with the help of her older sister Trina (Daniella Monet, A Fairly Odd Movie, Nancy Drew) and new friends including the musically gifted Andre (Leon Thomas III, August Rush, Broadway’s The Lion King, iCarly), brooding bad boy Beck (Avan Jogia, Spectacular!), eccentric Cat (Ariana Grande, Broadway’s 13) and lovable but psychologically scrambled ventriloquist Robbie (Matthew Bennett) – Tori realizes that she was born to perform and that entertaining people not only makes her happy but may change her life. The series, a co-production with Sony Music, features original songs performed by Justice and the ensemble cast.
