Learning math with Rock N Learn #review #giveaway



Rock 'N Learn is great on so many levels!! We need some extra math work at my house but I have a son who is very hard to work with.  I guess I'm hard to work with too because we both get so frustrated with each other when it comes to math.  And he just finished 1st grade so I am really dreading the years to come!  


I received 3 DVDs from Rock 'N Learn....addition and subtraction, money and telling time.  These are the 3 things that Aiden struggled with in 1st grade but really needs to work on before beginning 2nd grade in a few weeks.  Aiden loves music and is always making up some sort of crazy song to go with whatever activity we are doing at the moment so I was hoping the DVDs would spark his interest.  We have used the money and telling time ones so far and there are some really rocking songs on them.  He doesn't like every song but has already picked his favorites.  I personally love the money DVD because it is really funny to see all the dancing money.  I also used the money DVD during a tutoring session I was doing last week and we found a couple of songs to help remember what the coins were each worth.  And watching that dancing money on the big screen at my school was so entertaining for me (it doesn't take much).  These will be DVDs that we continue to pull out to help Aiden.  And I'm sure they will be used in my classroom as needed to.  We all love some good music and we may as well learn something at the same time!

While browsing the Rock 'N Learn web page I found that they offer so much more than just math DVDs.  You can work on reading, phonics, spelling, speaking another language, social studies, science, test taking skills and much more.  The age range is Preschool - 5th grade.  This will definitely be something that you can use throughout your child's elementary school days.  You will want to check out their web page www.rocklearn.com. 

Our goodies have arrived safely!


Love these great DVDs I received!

Loved using these during a tutoring session. 


A little about Rock 'N Learn.....

Rock 'N Learn 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. Now with over 50 products, we have sold millions of audio/book and video programs to teachers and parents throughout the United States, Canada, and other countries.

Rock 'N Learn programs help students learn math, phonics, reading, early childhood, social studies, Spanish, test-taking strategies, writing, and science. Our DVDs incorporate music with exciting, colorful imagery.

Headquartered in Conroe, Texas, just north of Houston, Rock 'N Learn is owned and operated by its founders, Richard and Brad Caudle.

Working as a school psychologist in 1986, Richard saw the need for multi-sensory learning programs using the styles of music that kids love. He consulted his younger brother Brad, an accomplished musician, to record their first program to help kids learn multiplication facts. Strong sales of this recording in the school specialty and book markets led to other programs and the start of a successful company.

Richard and Brad never varied from their number one goal of providing children with programs that would make learning easier and fun. Brad's wife Melissa, a former second-grade teacher, writes material and coordinates educational research for Rock 'N Learn. Richard's wife, Kathie, manages our sales and marketing team.

Rock 'N Learn programs have received numerous awards such as 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. Our programs lead in the areas of quality and customer satisfaction based on surveys of school supply stores.

As documented in case studies by numerous school districts, Rock 'N Learn programs work. The overwhelmingly positive response from parents, teachers, and kids generates tremendous word-of-mouth support. By consulting with educators and featuring talented vocalists and performers, Rock 'N Learn will continue to develop quality audio and video programs that hold interest and help kids learn.
