Rock N Learn Early Learning Collection: Review and Giveaway



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.

Alphabet Circus:

Children love the excitement of visiting the circus where they enjoy the musical game of finding words that start with each letter of the alphabet. These "alphabet learning songs" for each letter-along with animated circus excitement-create a highly-entertaining alphabet learning DVD.
Ages 3 – 5. Approx. 35 minutes.
My Review:
We are absolutely huge fans of Rock N Learn in our home. I was first introduced to them last year and we are owners of 7 different DVD's. The four mentioned above all feature the fun characters and music that Rock N Learn is known for, introducing children to all kinds of concepts for their preschool learning needs. Currently my girls are seriously loving the Nursery Rhymes DVD and I hear them singing Humpty Dumpty and Georgie Porgie all over the house. The way that Rock N Learn incorporates music with learning allows children to gain maximum retention of valuable concepts like colors, math, reading and more. 
Each DVD we received kept the attention of both my children, ages 4.5 and 3 years old. As well I have been able to incorporate them into my family child care program to add to my lesson plans from time to time. 
If you are looking for great learning DVD's to use for your daycare, family child care, and homeschool programs I highly recommend all the Rock N Learn products. There is something for everyone.
