Rock ‘N Learn Review and Giveaway

Rock N Learn Logo

How would you like your kids to learn while listening to music they enjoy? 
We got the chance to review two DVD's from the Rock 'N Learn collection, and these are the first educational dvd's that I have been this impressed with.

Rock N Learn Phonics Volume 1
Rock 'N Learn helps children learn by putting educational material to music with a current sound-the kind of music that kids enjoy and find motivating. 

The first dvd that I put in for the kids was the Alphabet Circus.  It was exactly for their ages, 2-5 years old, and the kids stayed glued to the TV the entire DVD.  Even my 22 month old!!  It goes through each letter one at a time, describing it with terms from the circus.  Many of these words are familiar to the kids, so they could relate easily.  The music kept them interested, and there was even a little humor here and there.  The most impressive thing was that after just watching it once, my three year old was already signing "C is for Cotton Candy" in the car.  I can tell the kids picked up a lot of information from watching, and what's better than them remembering educational material? 

The Second DVD we watched was Phonics Volume 1.  Even though it is for ages 6 & up, the kids stayed interested in it for a good amount of time.  It uses catchy rhymes to go through the sounds of the letters, and delayed answers for the kids to try to practice themselves.  You see a real human mouth pronouncing the sounds as well, so kids can know exactly how to sound.  My kids were little young to fully learn from this one.  I feel they can still benefit from watching it, and it will be perfect in a year or two. 

Overall, I was really impressed with Rock 'N Learn, it's very catchy and I really think kids could learn from watching.

BUY IT: On the Rock 'N Learn Website, or find a local store in your area Here.  The two DVDs I reviewed were around $19.99 each, which is very reasonable.

WIN IT: I want to thank Cara from Rock 'N Learn who has very generously offered one Kids and Deals reader to win their own copy of Rock 'N Learn Alphabet Circus and Phonics Volume 1.
