DVD Rock "N" Learn : Phonics ( Vol 1) Review & Giveaway





We all know learning can be fun. But it just got much more cooler :

Music + learning = Rock "N" Learn = One rockin' learning experience !

This equation was balanced and proved right by 2 brothers in the 80s - a school psychologist and a rock musician who decided to add a cool and contemporary beat to the subjects kids need the most.Rock "N" learn is completely
kid-friendly, encourages self-learning and is all about effectiveness and simplicity.

Here's something we will love to hear about Rock "N" Learn in their own words:
  • The Rock "N" Learn team avoids any educational "fad" or "current trends" and instead focuses on mainstream material that offers broad application to supplement any home or school curriculum.
  • 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 and the steady beat helps memorization.
I wholeheartedly believe in the concept of using more creative ways to teach children.But our kids are more blessed to have such a dedicated team of professionals working to provide them with creative educational tools.And this DVD is certainly going in our car!

I watched the entire DVD and was totally impressed with the idea of integrating music with phonics. The beats of the music completely blend with the words and flow smoothly causing the child to take-in all the knowledge and enjoy it at the same time.

My son who is only 2 yrs old was swaying to the music and was quiet attracted to the pictures on the screen. He even wanted to watch it again!

Rock "N" Learn Phonics DVD program covers :
  • Short vowels
  • Consonants
  • Blends & Digraphs
  • Word Families
  • Silent e
  • Read - along stories
The program runs for approx 70 minutes and is for ages 6 and up.

  • The program engages all the sensory parts of the body. I liked the fact that the picture, alphabet, the word and an onscreen mouth that pronouns the word can be seen onscreen at the same time. It is a fantastic idea to help coordinate what is heard and how it is seen as a word as pronunciation is a key factor to learning phonics.
  • Delightful combination of colors onscreen is visually appealing for young minds.Music is made in such a way that it promotes learning of the subject and not just the music itself.Children can stay focused on the subject till the end.
  • Short readings in a slow manner, with each word being underlined was focused on encouraging the child to read with comprehension and clarity.More practice readings are a bonus! I would have loved to see some familiar stories in the "Reading for fluency" section, to make the subject more familiar for children.
DVDs from Rock "N" Learn will now be a part of my son's learning process. Who doesn't want a product that has gone through subject research, secures critiques from teachers, unanimously praised by educators, parents and media?! Rock "N" Learn Rocks with excellent animation !!
