Did you ever wish that kids’ music videos were actually educational instead of just entertaining? Rock N Learn can make your wish come true! They offer a wide variety of learning videos set in a music video format. My kids were tapping their toes while they were learning!
I was given the Money and Making Change DVD to review. This DVD begins by introducing each coin, works into skip counting with coins and then making purchases and making change using coins. I enjoyed it and even learned some coin trivia. My son and daughter loved it, and asked to watch it again. However, my daughter did say it moved too fast for her. We intend to watch certain portions repeatedly until she gets it. The graphics are bright and colorful. The music is upbeat and catchy. Even the characters are appropriately named: Penny and Bill. That made me chuckle. These DVDs are appropriate for visual learners, audio (aural) learners and those who need some of both. As you probably know, information set to music is often easier to remember. Adding the visual component is even better. Rock N Learn presents information using a variety of music, sometimes country, sometimes rock and sometimes rap. Something for everyone!
Rock N Learn has more than just the Money and Making Change DVD. They offer an astounding selection. Topics include as the alphabet, animals, colors and shapes, nursery rhymes, kindergarten preparation, phonics, read along stories, grammar, writing strategies, telling time, addition and subtraction, word problems, multiplication, division, fractions and decimals, physical science, earth science, life science, human body, solar system, states and capitals, presidents and government, Spanish and French. Whether you are a homeschooling family, a teacher or a parent looking for a supplement for what your child is learning is school, Rock N Learn has the music video for you!
The Rock N Learn website is full of helpful information. You can shop by subject or student’s age. If you are interested in a particular DVD, click on it to watch a short sample of the program. A description and listing of topics for each video is available. I was astounded at the number of awards these videos had won. Each award is listed for each video and includes the Parent’s Choice Award, the Parent’s Guide to Children’s Media Award, Toy Man Seal of Approval, Teachers’ Choice Award and many, many others. The Money and Making Change DVD is the winner of six different awards! Wow. Apparently, I am not the only one impressed with this product! Once you start looking, you will probably have a long wish list! DVDs can be ordered directly from the website, by mail or fax. Rock N Learn even offers several collections to save you money. And, if you like the videos, don’t forget to check out their audio CDs and iPad apps available for download.
If you have a student who wants to get a jump on learning, needs to review or needs a different mode of presentation than they will get in school, I would encourage you to check out the Rock N Learn website to find the DVD just right for your needs!
