Back To School - ROCK N LEARN Review & Giveaway!

 Has your brain been getting lazy this summer, well it is time to get it back in shape! School is right around the corner, whether you have a little one not yet in school, or even kids heading to middle school Rock N Learn has got something for you! Rock N Learn has been so kind as to send me a few more videos to review.....AWESOME!
You can see all of Rock N Learn's items here :ROCK N LEARN

My kids honestly love these videos. especially Avery & Brianna, but the Science & Social Studies hold the older kids attention too. Honestly, as soon as I pop Rock N Learn into the DVD player Brianna comes a- runnin!

This time around I was sent:


Colors, Shapes, & Counting
Now Cindy who I have been working with at Rock N Learn said that this video was being re-made with newer graphics, but let me assure you there is nothing wrong with the graphics on this video. Brianna LOVES this video, and after the first time she watched it she had all kinds of new things she was trying to show us, including counting on her hands, & her feet! She also loved the songs that went with the counting, and she is glued to the TV when the shapes songs come on. I would highly recommend this one fir anyone who has a baby right on up to about 3 or maybe even 4. The songs are catchy too, my kids and I caught ourselves singing them later in the day LOL This is a great video!

Multiplication Rap
I  wasn't as fond of this one, as I was hoping I would be. I thought it would be a little more exciting, but it was just ok. The rap was pretty cute, and clever but kind of long. Now as far as being a learning tool, I do think this would be a great way to present the dreaded multiplication tables. My daughter who is entering 3rd grade watched it for a minute and then started dancing around.....the great thing about all the Rock N Learn videos I have viewed thus far is that they have great music. Brianna who is 21 months and Avery who is 7 start dancing around as soon as they hear the first beat (lol)

 Life Science:

LOVED THIS ONE! 
I know a couple of folks who Home-school their children,and I think this would be an excellent addition to their home-school  library. This video really helps the kids understand things on their level, with some great animations. This takes the confusion out of science,  my 11 & 13 year old , as well as myself watched this together, and we were both entertained and enlightened while learning all about plants, plant cells, animal cells, ecosystems, genetic traits, and more.....There is even a website you can go to for free study materials that coincide with this video. There are special bonus sections, that help you score high on a life science test.This was a very good dvd, HIGHLY Recommended!
