Rock ‘n Learn {Review & Giveaway}

logocopy1

Rock ‘n Learn has again offered me another title and another opportunity for one of my readers to win! My six year old daughter has come home with quite a bit of math homework lately and both of my five and six year old daughters have been earning a little bit of money. So I decided to get the Money & Making Change DVD from Rock ‘n Learn.

About the DVD:

Penny and Bill know how to shake things up when it comes to counting money and making change. Cool songs and games provide plenty of practice with real-world skills. Learn about coins and how they relate to one another, strategies for counting cash, "skip counting," expressing money in written terms, how to make change, and more. You’ll have lots of fun as you gain valuable skills you can bank on.

My Thoughts: We’ve been teaching our children to put 10% of their money to tithing for our church, and then 1/2 in their savings and 1/2 in their spending accounts. The Money and Making Change DVD has helped my kids have a better grasp of what each coin is called and how much they are worth and how to make chance and add the different amounts together. I haven’t sat down and watched the DVD yet all the way through but I have heard it about five times now because they want to watch it over and over again when they get something new they enjoy. So I guess you can say they definitely enjoyed this DVD. I actually have learned a little bit of trivia from listening to this DVD- I never did understand why the dime was smaller then the penny or nickel but worth more. Apparently it has to do with when coins were made out of silver and the dime weight a tenth of what a silver dollar did, hence why it’s worth 10 cents. Of course I also love all the songs included on the DVD as with every Rock ‘n Learn title the beat of these songs just make them more fun!

From the Website:

Rock 'N Learn, Inc. began as an idea that would help children learn by putting educational material to music with a current sound-the kind of music that kids enjoy and find motivating. Rock 'N Learn programs help students learn math, phonics, reading, early childhood, social studies, Spanish, test-taking strategies, writing, and science. Our DVDs incorporate cool music with exciting, colorful imagery.

Rock ‘n Learn also included some more of their new ruler backed bookmarks in our package which my kids were again excited about!

You can’t go wrong with Rock ‘n Learn and if you’re thinking about holiday shopping these would make great gifts!

Buy It: You can purchase DVD’s from Rock ‘n Learn for only $19.99 but they also sell Book and CD combos for only $12.99 and replacement books for $3.00 (this is a nice feature in case your book gets worn out or lost).

Win It: Rock ‘n Learn has offered one of my readers their choice of DVD or Book and CD combo!
