When I was given yet another opportunity to share with the newest title at Rock ‘n Learn my kids were very excited! This new DVD, Sight Words is geared specifically towards Pre K aged children however it’s been a great review for my daughter who just graduated from Kindergarten and a fun edition to our collection for my 3 year old. So while my kids are a little bit in-between the geared ages for this title they still love it! Their favorite part of these DVD’s are the upbeat songs. They love to get up and dance to them and if I can sneak education into the time they spend watching TV then that’s even better to me!
I was excited to learn that in the development of Sight Words, Rock ‘n Learn actually worked with reading specialists and actual classroom teachers with combined experience of over 50 years.
About the DVD:
Sight Words is built upon research showing that children learn to read more effectively when they are presented words within a logical context. With our Sight Words DVD, children also get practice reading words in simple sentences and stories. This helps learners make a solid connection between the sight words and their meaning.On the Sight Words DVD, one bonus section helps students focus on the shape of each word and practice spelling it. Another bonus section provides kids with insight into the pronunciation of "t-h-e," something that even a lot of the adults on our development team found fascinating.
Sight words are the most frequently used words in the English language, and this DVD helps students read them automatically. As a supplement to phonics-based strategies, Rock 'N Learn Sight Words boosts reading and spelling skills. Children learn over 60 sight words through engaging characters, entertaining songs, and fun practice. Words are presented in context to help build reading comprehension. Includes all pre-primer Dolch words, the top 20 from Fry's, and more. A bonus section helps kids with word shapes and spelling skills.
Pre-k & up. Approx. 50 minutes
