We have been huge fans of Rock n Learn and their excellent educational DVDs for years! Miss Grace has practically 'grown up with them' (her quote, LOL). As a parent I love how much they teach my child, she loves getting answers right and being entertained!

We were sent 2 of the new Rock n Learn DVDs to review: Learn a Language DVD and Multiplication Rap DVD.

Discover a new language or practice vocabulary and counting in your child’s first language. Choose from Spanish, French, Mandarin Chinese, Italian, German, and English – all six languages on one DVD! Aimed at ages 2 – 6, the DVD features kids as the stars.Susan, Brad, Festus, Chip, Word-Bot, and the Rock ’N Learn kids make learning a new language easy and exciting. In this new adventure, kids learn colors, toys, clothes, furniture, and counting to 10. Colorful animation, real images, and adorable characters create an engaging experience that’s clear and easy to follow. Even adults will enjoy this fun way to begin learning a language. All words and phrases are spoken clearly by both male and female native speakers.
It’s easy to customize subtitles. From the Main Menu, select Custom Combinations. Next, choose the desired language to be heard. Finally, you may select a subtitle from the six languages or turn them off. Parents or teachers may want to see the subtitles in their native language while their children listen to words in another language.

Unlike other Rock ‘N Learn programs, the instruction is always spoken rather than sung. This allows children to clearly imitate sounds and pick up the nuances of each language. Brief musical transitions and fun performers maintain the Rock ‘N Learn theme.
Each language provides more than 80 words and phrases. Repetition throughout the program helps ensure mastery and a sense of success. Learners get a chance to say each word before the voice or after the voice, and then along with the voice a second time. 

Miss Grace was GLUED to the set for this one and couldn't wait to switch languages! I was actually surprised at how much Spanish, French and Chinese she had picked up from cartoon shows when she was younger! This is a super fun video, that is EASY for kids to pickup on and learn the words. And because they use basic items, you can repeat the word practice sessions at home without the DVD. It is a huge benefit for those wanting to expose their kids to different languages at a younegr age!


For 3rd grade and up- Everyone loves rapping along and learning multiplication with D.J. Doc Roc – the Hip Hop Hamster. Positive lyrics, fun music, and high-energy action make these multiplication rap songs irresistible. Multiplication facts through 12 are easy to learn and remember with a different song for each set of rap facts. Now includes skip counting songs. Learning multiplication facts doesn't have to be dull. WithMultiplication Rap, students can rap along while they learn and retain facts. Upbeat music with positive lyrics, energetic performers, and fun characters (DVD) make rap songs favorites with kids of all ages. Delayed answers the second time multiplication facts are presented allow students to check their progress. These songs will help kids learn multiplication facts quickly and easily. Multiplication Rap DVD also includes "What is Multiplication?" This 11-minute segment is only on the DVD and clearly explains what multiplication is all about. For example, students learn howmultiplication is repeated addition. They learn the Nines Trick, using manipulative objects such as pennies to understand multiplication, the commutative property of multiplication, and more.As a bonus, this DVD now has Skip Counting for 2 through 12 and 25. DVD version: Approx. 46 minutes.

Miss Grace's 2nd grade class hasn't started multiplication yet (that is coming in December or January), but she was glued to the video, and caught on to the simple multiplication, and then drove us nuts singing the rap below for the rest of the afternoon! But if it helps her learn new concepts before they are taught, I'm all for it! Just like reading, pre-familiarization with the multiplying concepts in a fun way, help to make them less hard when they are taught!

Check out the multiplication sample video;

This DVD is also available as a audio cd with a study book, for those that want to use it for home school independent study.
