Rock ‘N Learn {Giveaway} – CLOSED

As I spend more time with moms with children of my son’s age, I’m realizing that pre-school is really the norm around here.  Its definitely not something we can afford right now, especially with grad school just around the corner, so I’ve been brainstorming ways and ideas to pack my toddler’s childhood with things he needs to learn to be ready for kindergarten.  I’ve really started to focus on what he’s watching during quiet-time.  Instead of good ol’ PBS, I’m trying to chock him full of educational videos that hit the alphabet and reading head on.  Valerie and I must have been having the same thoughts, because she also reviewed a Rock N Learn DVD last week, and you can read her review HERE.

Rock N Learn is exactly what I had in mind and their Letter Sounds DVD  is just the perfect thing for “Rocket”!  It grabs his attention from the start and dives right in to the alphabet, and the set up is very conducive to learning.  The DVD started out with pictures of the letter, an object that starts with a letter, and a mouth in the top corner that is saying the letter and word aloud so you’re able to see the correct placement.

When my son was in Early Intervention and had speech therapists come to the house weekly, they focused a lot on getting him to put his mouth in the correct shape, as in sucking on straws to make a correct “W” and licking peanut butter off the room of your mouth to make an “L”.  Being able to see the shapes of the mouth is right in line with what we’re working on at home.

Rock N Learn is a treasure trove of educational DVDs.  They cover almost 40 different topics, with an age span of preschool to 10 and up.

Our DVD is meant for ages 4-7, but my 3 year old was hooked, and even the baby sat through the majority of it.  62 min. is a little long for squirmy bodies, but not a problem for older children.  There was enough variety, but still a lot of repetition, to convince me that this is an excellent way to teach.  The music was peppy, the characters were friendly, and the examples were funny.  After a “game show” format in the middle of the DVD, letters start combining to making words, nice and slow and simple.

It goes even further and introduces simple sentences.  The progression makes it easy to stop the DVD and rewind in order to review the basics if it gets too advanced.
These would make great gifts for kids, their parents, and teachers!  Use the coupon code JQ7711 for 25% off on your order at www.rocknlearn.com.
