Every afternoon, S and C spend about 30 minutes in the car while we do school pickup for B. Depending on the day, this time is usually used as a quick nap, book reading, talking, or just some movie time. S is my movie girl and loves to watch anything that is fun, but is especially drawn to things with music.

Rock 'B Learn was established in 1986, by Richard Caudle, a school psychologist and his brother Brad, a musician. Richard saw an increasing need for multi sensory learning programs for children that utilized music that kids would love. Brad used his music knowledge and talents, along with Richard to record a program on Multiplication Facts, and after this was a huge hit, Rock 'N Learn was born. Located in Texas, Richard and Brad are the owners and operators, but also have their wives to help coordinate the company and strive to provide children with programs that make learning easier and fun.
Rock 'N Learn offers programs in math, phonics, reading, social studies, Spanish, writing, science, early childhood, and test taking strategies. Each program is DVD based with catchy music, bright colors, and fun pictures, while offering amazing learning opportunity. School districts, teachers, and parents have fallen in love with these programs and continue to be successful. Rock 'N Learn has also won many awards including: Dr. Toy, Parents' Choice, iParenting, National Parenting Publications, Learning Magazine Teachers' Choice, Early Childhood News, National Parenting Center, and Parent's Guide to Children's Media.

Watch for this great deal coming soon
The 2014 catalog, so many cool products
The 10 DVD Preschool Set, exclusively available for 9 more days on Groupon
This set includes Nursery Rhymes, Alphabet, Colors, Shapes, Counting, Tying Shoes, Printing Letters, 170 Sight Words, Phonics, and Reading Practice
This set offers the same adorable characters, fun music, and engaging activities that S was introduced to in her other DVDs. She loves watching and participating, I love that she is learning while she really doesn't realize it.
DVD 1: Nursery Rhymes
S knows her nursery rhymes fairly well, but this DVD really makes them come to life. C has gotten in to this DVD as well, which I love. I think our favorite nursery rhyme from the DVD is Humpty Dumpty, who doesn't love that silly egg? The DVD is just about 30 minutes and has over 30 nursery rhymes, so perfect for us to watch in the pickup line at school.
DVD 2: Alphabet Fun
This one is awesome for C, at 18 months her newest favorite song is her "CCCs" or "ABCs". She loves to sing and dance to it, so this DVD is right up her alley. S knows most of her letters, but this just provides an extra push for her to recognize and hear the letters. This DVD is about 35 minutes long.
DVD 3: Colors, Shapes, & Numbers
I love the colors and shapes and how alive they are. The girls both think this one is fun, but really is helpful for C who is just starting to understand her colors. I know this interactive DVD will really be one she can learn from for awhile. This DVD is about 30 minutes long.
DVD 4: Let's Play School
S is a fan of this one, especially the shoe tying focus. Tying shoes is something she has been slowly mastering, so seeing it on the screen really make it come to life for her. I also think C will benefit from the life skills that are shown in fun ways. This DVD is about 30 minutes long.
DVD 5: First Sight Words
This DVD includes over 50 sight words presented in fun and musical ways. S is really feeling the words from this as some of them are the sight words she has at school. I think this DVD is really going to be helpful in her prep for Kindergarten. This DVD is about 30 minutes long.
DVD 6: Sight Words
This DVD has over 60 sight words that are related to beginning reading skills. S likes this one, but still has a ways to go with the First Sight Words DVD before she can master this one. This DVD uses more sentence and reading structure while incorporating the sight words. This DVD is about 45 minutes long.
DVD 7: More Sight Words
This DVD has over 60 words that are both Dolch and Fry words on more advanced levels. These words are more focused for first grade and up, so one S can use for the next few years to continue her practicing. This DVD is about 30 minutes long.
DVD 8: Phonics for Beginners
I am a big fan of this DVD. This one uses letter sounds in a fun ways to help children hear and remember them. It also shows the viewer how to form the sound with their mouth, so fun for the girls to do. There are also more games to interact as they practice their reading of letter combinations. This DVD is about 40 minutes long.
DVD 9: Phonics for Reading
This DVD is still a bit above S, but she can participate in some of the interaction. She is familiar with some of the phonics rules, thanks to her preschool teacher, but is still not ready for some of the terms like digraphs and blends. This one is actually something B has watched, and while he is older, I still think it is benefiting him to hear these things repeated that he is learning at school. This DVD is about 45 minutes long.
DVD 10: Rock 'N Read
With 4 classic stories, The Three Little Pigs, The Ugly Duckling, Jack and the Beanstalk, and The Little Red Hen, we can both hear and read along with the stories. There are also songs and activities after each story. I know that C can enjoy listening, S can try her best to sound out some of the words, and B can actually read the story aloud. This one is great for all 3 kids. This DVD is about 35 minutes long.
I love that all 10 of these DVDs are around 30 minutes and we can use them while sitting in the pickup line. It is educational and really fun for the girls to watch and learn. I am completely happy with all that Rock 'N Learn offers.
