Review and Giveaway: Rock 'N' Learn Phonics 1 DVD Volume 1

A child who can read well will succeed in school. I am a huge fan in teaching children phonics. By learning phonics, children can learn to sound out words on their own.

Rock ‘N’ Learn Inc. has produced a fun, new way to learn phonics in an entertaining video series developed for teaching phonics. With rhythmic rock and rap music, the steady beat helps encourage memorization. In this two volume series, Rock ‘N’ Learn Phonics, children will learn all about short and long vowels, consonants, word families, silent e, digraphs, beginning and ending consonant blends, plurals, diphthongs, rule breakers, common sight words and more.

I had the opportunity to view to review Phonics Volume 1. This is a very entertaining video. It states that it is for ages 6 and up, but my four year old loves it and it is reinforcing her letter sounds and understanding of how they fit together to make words. My six year old, who is already a voracious reader, really enjoyed it as well. The graphics are fun and colorful. I really like how they sound out a lot of words and give kids a chance to try to sound it out first. This is an award winning video and I can understand why. This is a great video for the classroom, home school, or just for parents who want to supplement school learning in a fun way.

Rock ‘N’ Learn also has an entire series of educational videos, including foreign language, science, writing, and Presidents & U.S. Government. The idea for these videos came about when two brothers, a teacher and a school psychologist, had an idea to combine learning with rock and rap music. You can see and hear samples at http://www.rocknlearn.com/.

Rock ‘N Learn can be found in top school supply and specialty stores nationwide (the full list can be found at http://www.rocknlearn.com/html/find_a_store.htm) as well as Barnes & Noble’s education DVD section, Amazon.com and the company’s own Website (http://www.rocknlearn.com/) . Or maybe you want to win one—just enter my giveaway below!
