I think my boys are becoming Rock N Learn junkies….and that’s NOT a bad thing. This time I have one to share for the younger kids ~ the new Rock N Learn Sight Words DVD!
Description: Sight Words, a new DVD program from Rock ‘N Learn, helps kids learn to read. Using fun music and exciting characters, kids learn to read over 60 words. These are the most common words used in the English language and are words kids need to know automatically. This program is perfect for parents with very young kids who appear advanced and eager to learn, as well as older students with remedial needs. It’s effective at helping kids learn to read at all ages.
Developed along with four reading specialists having combined classroom experience of over 50 years, Rock ‘N Learn Sight Words is designed to hold the interest of kids and get results. A bonus section helps kids practice their spelling skills and focus on the shapes of words. The program engages kids to participate along with the fun characters. Approximately 50 minutes in length, it’s most effective when kids watch again and again. Before too long, they are reading the sight words with ease.

J enjoys watching this video and D is sometimes found watching alongside him. P thought the music was not to his taste, but admits that it is not a selection he needs to watch.
I found the songs catchy and the pace quick enough to keep the kids attention. As J is not quite 2, I don’t expect him to be reading real soon. But, making associations at an early age is fine by me (and there are plenty of people selling products to teach babies and toddlers to read for far more than this title.) The fact that other family members do not mind his occasional viewing of it is a bonus.
I’d definitely recommend this title for anyone with a preschool or early elementary student who is learning to read.
