Rock ‘n Learn {Review & Giveaway}

logo copy

My six year old who’s in first grade this year was reading before she even stepped foot in a public classroom and we didn’t have much to do with that so we didn’t have to work on trying to help her learn how to read, however my five year who’s in kindergarten this year is doing a great job but we’ve had to work a little harder with her. Most of the time we find her sister reading books to her and helping her sound out the letters and Kindergarten has also done a fabulous job of helping her learn new skills towards reading but I was looking for some fun new ideas and found Rock ‘n Learn.

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.

For this review I decided on the Read Along Stories DVD from Rock ‘n Learn. I wanted to get something that both of my girls could enjoy and at the same time something that would help my daughter increase in her reading skills. I love that the Read Along Stories DVD contains four well known stories which made it easier for my daughter to follow along. I loved that my daughters were able to follow along with the story right on the screen with the “bouncing ball” concept (there wasn’t actually a ball but the words were highlighted in yellow). I actually watched the DVD while my kids were at school with my two year old and read along with the stories and found her trying to copy the words I was saying. One of my two year olds favorite parts of the DVD was of course the songs! I like how the DVD has many different menu options so you don’t have to watch the entire thing but you can pick the individual story you’d like to read/watch or pick the song you’d like. After one story and one song my two year old wanted more songs! She was up and dancing on the coffee table. I really liked how the song wasn’t just a song but basically retold the entire story in a simplified song format that was catchy and upbeat.

Rock ‘n Learn also included some of their new ruler backed bookmarks in our package which my six year old loved! She has started reading chapter books and loves bookmarks so that definitely made her day!
