Closed: Cool For School Event: Rock N Learn Review & Giveaway

Welcome To My First Giveaway For Back To School
Rock ‘N Learn programs are designed to enable parents to be as involved as they choose with their kids. Easy to use and follow, each program is crafted especially to allow for self-instruction, especially appreciated by busy parents and teachers. Completely kid-friendly, Rock ‘N Learn is expressly developed to empower kids to learn on their own—or parents can help further apply the material that kids have learned. Because Rock ‘N Learn is all about effectiveness—and simplicity—the programs are designed to provide an alternative to the complicated kits and workbooks that demand a lot of adult supervision.

Rock ‘N Learn is education with a beat—and the ‘rock’ behind the ‘learn’ is meant for much more than foot-tapping. Rock and rap music are both very rhythmic; the steady beat helps encourage memorization. The music and video of Rock ‘N Learn work together to involve all the senses: auditory, visual and even kinesthetic (feeling the beat and moving to rhythm).

Rock ‘N Learn has also become a classroom staple as schools are increasingly asking teachers to provide differentiated instruction in the classroom—where instruction must match the specific needs of each student. Together with Rock ‘N Learn, teachers can have the main class watch the program while they work with smaller groups of students. At the same time, Rock ‘N Learn also serves as an effective supplemental tool for reaching students of varying abilities and learning styles—helping students who may not have responded to traditional approaches but can achieve results when given instruction that is multi-sensory and better holds their attention.

I had a chance to review the Rock N Learn Phonics Volume 1 DVD. The oldest boy who is 7 can read above his level & the youngest is 4 who can't yet read but knows all of his letters. All I heard the whole time watching this DVD was giggles. Of course the first time they only watched 2 sessions because their attention went out the window.
As I was browsing the Rock N Learn website I found several DVDs I would love to get for the kids. Rock N Learn has DVDs suitable for children from 2 to 10 & up. If you have a child just learning anything from shapes to the Alphabet they have several DVDs for this purpose.
The Phonics, Reading & Writing DVDs have everything from Learning Sounds to Reading Comprehension. If Math is an area your child is having trouble with or you want to give your child a head start, they carry 13 fun filled DVDs. One area I never knew they carried are the Other Languages which includes Spanish, English & French.
The Science & Social Studies section looks really fun & I know the kids would love every DVD out of this section. The Test Taking Stategies has each subject such as Math Word Problems & Human Body. They also carry different collections that are age appropriate.
Thanks to the wonderful people over at Rock N Learn, one lucky person will win Phonics Volume 1 DVD.
