Don't you just love this time of year? The kids are so excited about returning to school. I do and although Hubby and I try to keep our kids focused on learning all they can, I know sometimes kids struggle and may need a little extra boost to help reinforce concepts learned during the school day. That's why I'm so excited to present to you the latest additions to the Rock 'N Learn series: Phonics Volume 1 and Phonics Volume 2.
Rock 'N Learn was created by two brothers, one a school psychologist, the other a musician. They used their creative skills to create Rock 'N Learn fusing learning with catchy tunes and has been shown to work. All I know is my kids love it! In fact, my kid's school has some Rock 'N Learn DVDs available for checkout in our Parent Resource Center.
Rock 'N Learn has a wide assortment of topics to choose from including foreign languages, math, test taking strategies, science and social studies and phonics, reading and writing. Our friends at Rock 'N Learn presented Three Boys and an Old Lady with the Phonics Volumes 1 and 2 DVDs for review. Los Tres Amigos love these videos! I love them even more. You see one of Los Tres Amigos receives Speech Therapy and I wanted to get his therapist's view of the DVDs and she gave them a big thumbs up! It's only been a couple of weeks but we are incorporating these DVDs into his therapy regimen.
