Rock 'N Learn Phonics Review and Giveaway...

Cool For School Giveaway #6

Thanks to Rock 'N Learn, we recently got to review an awesome learning DVD called Phonics, Volume 1:
Some background on Rock 'N Learn:

Rock ’N Learn is a leading brand that parents and teachers trust and that kids love.

Description of Phonics, Volume 1:
"Practicing the phonics skills that lead to reading and spelling success is more fun than ever. We’ve turbocharged our best-selling Phonics video program with new, enhanced animation along with sentence and story practice. Catchy rhymes make rules easy to remember. Delayed answers and our “on-screen mouth” let students check their reading and pronunciation. Read-along stories and fun songs provide practice with rules and build reading fluency. Context clues help students develop multiple strategies to read for meaning.
Ages 6 & up. Approx. 70 minutes."

What we thought: This DVD is recommended for ages 6 and up and our oldest is 4, but the characters and songs are fun and interesting enough to keep the young ones watching:) They really enjoyed watching this DVD and I heard both A and 21 month old D singing along several times, even the first time they watched it! I was super impressed with the way Rock 'N Learn presented this phonics lesson "in disguise", if you will. I think the kids knew they were learning, but it was so much fun to watch and sing along! I am happy with what my little ones have picked up from this DVD so far and I'm sure they will be learning even more each time they watch Phonics, Volume 1. This DVD has definitely gotten our family interested in the Rock 'N Learn line of DVDs. ABCD Diaries gives Rock 'N Learn Phonics, Volume 1 an A and our Cool For School Seal of Approval!!
Buy It: You can find this and other Rock 'N Learn DVDs with this store locator.
Win It: Rock 'N Learn has generously offered one ABCD Diaries reader a copy of the Phonics, Volume 1 DVD!!! To enter, leave a comment below telling us who this DVD would be for.
