-closed- Rock ‘N Learn Phonics DVDs: Review and Giveaway


How come you can learn all the words to songs, but you can’t learn your school work?!”  How many frustrated parents have asked their kids that question? 

Once a child falls behind in school, it becomes extremely hard for them to catch up.  As a child looks around the classroom and notices that other kids quickly understand the subject matter, confidence begins to wane.  The problems at hand, which once seemed small, stack up and become overwhelming and feel paralyzing. 

Believe it or not, music can actually help – with catchy tunes, a child learn math, improve vocabulary and even introduce them to science. The trick is to turn kids’ love of music into a learning tool at an early age and use that tool throughout their development.

In the mid-80s, brothers Richard and Brad Caudle (one a school psychologist and the other a musician/composer) teamed to create Rock ‘N Learn.  Over 20 years later, Rock ‘N Learn has grown to be the country's #1 educational video program, used in millions of homes and schools nationwide. 

Unanimously praised by educators, parents and the media, Rock ‘N Learn has earned awards from prestigious organizations such as iParenting, Learning Magazine Teachers’ Choice, Parents’ Choice, Dr. Toy and The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval – to name a few.


About the Phonics Volume 1 DVD
Practicing the phonics skills that lead to reading and spelling success is more fun than ever.  Rock ‘N Learn has turbocharged their best-selling Phonics program with new, enhanced animation along with sentence and story practice.  Catchy rhymes make rules easy to remember.  Delayed answers and “on-screen mouth” let students check their reading and pronunciation.  Read-along stories and fun songs provide practice with rules and build reading fluency.  Context clues help students develop multiple strategies to read for meaning.  Busy parents and teachers love the way Rock ‘N Learn Phonics captures kids’ attention and allows for differentiated instruction through independent practice.

About the Phonics Volume 2 DVD
Practice is the key to reading and spelling success—and now it’s more fun than ever. Rock ‘N Learn enhanced their best-selling Phonics video program with new animation along with sentence and story practice. Volume 2 builds on Volume 1, with catchy rhymes to make rules easy to remember. Delayed answers and their “on-screen mouth” let students check their reading and pronunciation. Read-along stories and fun songs provide practice applying the rules and building reading fluency. Context clues help students develop multiple strategies to read for meaning.

Both my 3 and 7 year olds loved watching these Rock 'N Learn DVDs even if these levels are for 6+. My 7 yr old was intrigued and chanted along and repeated  what they were learning. They teach how to say silent E sounds,  vowels, consonants, syllables and more. The moving mouth parts, helps my youngest learn how the sounds/words are formed and at times was coping it. The catchy tunes and cartoon characters were great to help keep their attention.
