{Cool for School} Rock 'n Learn

My daughter will be six next month, and she still does not know how to read. This is something that we need to work on some more at home which I am guilty for not spending enough time on. My boys were the same way at this age, but over the summer between Kindergarten and Grade One reading suddenly became easy for them. It didn't happen that way with my daughter, so I was happy to receive the following DVD's for review from Rock 'n Learn.


Jill and Joey are so excited about starting kindergarten! Your kids will get excited too, as they learn essential skills through fun songs, animated characters, and real children. Skills include colors, counting, tying shoes, following directions, holding a pencil, printing letters and numbers, listening, number recognition and printing numbers through ten, getting dressed, left/right directions, and more.

Ages 3 - 5. Approx. 45 minutes.

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.

Practice is the key to reading and spelling success—and now it’s more fun than ever. We’ve turbocharged our best-selling Phonics video program with new animation along with sentence and story practice. Volume 2 builds on Volume 1, with catchy rhymes to 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 applying the rules and building reading fluency. Context clues help students develop multiple strategies to read for meaning.

Ages 6 & up. Approx. 78 minutes.
My Review: My daughter really enjoyed these videos. She had fun singing along once she learned a few of the songs and the computer animated graphics captured her attention just like their website says it should. I don't have a fabulous success story to share yet (She won't even dress herself in the morning, which is one of the things that Getting Ready for Kindergarten teaches) but I do feel we have made a good start. My toddler even likes watching these DVD's, and I'm sure she will get great use of them as she gets older too. As we have figured out, learning to read can be stressful -for both parents and our children- but when learning is fun, it becomes easier too.

Another DVD from Rock 'n Learn that I've got my eye on is Letter Sounds, which seems to be our biggest brick wall in my daughters path to reading right now. If your child already knows how to read and is possibly having trouble in another area, Rock 'n Learn also offers DVD's on Math, Science & Social Studies, and even Test-Taking Strategies.
