Hey all, I’m back! I took some time off to pack and unpack a house, but I’m back with a few more great giveaways for you and your family! The first is from a company we know and love here on Dandy Giveaway, Rock ‘N Learn.

 Rock ‘N Learn is a company that creates educational DVDs for preschoolers through elementary-aged children, teaching topics such as math, reading, science, social studies, languages and test preparation. I’ve reviewed Rock ‘N Learn before on Dandy and liked the product. My kids enjoyed the movie and were learning at the same time, so that’s never a bad thing, right?

1st grade

What sets Rock ‘N Learn apart from other educational DVDs is their use of music in learning. With the Alphabet DVD that I reviewed last time, the characters would sing little songs for each letter which really helped cement the letter with the sound and other words that begin with that letter. I believe kids really can learn better through music, and my kids were definitely picking up on things quicker through the songs. However, this DVD was different.

Language DVD

I was sent a free copy of the “Learn a Language” DVD and was excited to see how quickly my children could learn new some new Spanish words through song (we chose to watch Spanish but there are five other languages on the DVD). But while where was a beat constantly in the background, they never sang any actual songs. The characters would point to or hold up a picture of an object (say a window) and then say the word in Spanish (“la ventana”). They would repeat each word twice and move on to another object in the room. They went through a whole house, pointing out common objects, and also went through the basic colors and numbers. They would repeat each section a few times as well to really cement the vocabulary.

language screen

I was disappointed that there wasn’t any singing, but my kids’ learning surely didn’t suffer! My 2- and 4-year old both caught on right away, saying the picture word in English as they held it up and said it in Spanish. By the end of the 37-minute DVD they were repeating some of the words in Spanish, too! About 30 minutes in, they were starting to get a little restless and bored, but they had definitely picked up on some new words and new skills.

language watch

Like I said, we chose to watch Spanish but you can also watch the same video with Mandarin Chinese, French, Italian, German and English as the language as well. Just think: you could teach your kid to speak 6 different languages for only $19.99! Rock ‘N Learn products can be found at teacher supply stores, specialty stores, Barnes & Noble and other online retailers.
