Busy parents and teachers love the way Rock 'N Learn Phonics captures kids' attention. Cool songs and humorous characters take the struggle out of learning to read. Students control the pace, advancing as they master each new skill, so they can practice on their own and feel proud of their accomplishments. Learners spend as much time as they need on each section before going to new sections. They can always review previous material; it's fun with this highly-entertaining phonics DVD.
Students learn phonics rules through fun songs and word families. Next, they practice their skills by reading simple phrases using words that rhyme. When ready, students apply the skills they have learned to read complete sentences and stories. The read-along stories on this DVD are presented at a slow pace for beginning readers. As students practice, they also work on fluency by singing along with songs about the stories. These sections are so fun students want to use them again and again. A bonus section presents the stories at a normal pace to help students learn to read fluently.
Rock 'N Learn Phonics is perfect for regular education, special education, remedial classes, ELL, and even adult basic education. By covering a variety of skills at different levels, our phonics DVDs provide an effective tool for differentiated instruction in the classroom. Students at different abilities will find content that challenges and motivates them to master new skills. Some teachers use Rock 'N Learn Phonics to facilitate individual instruction. While the main group is using Rock 'N Learn Phonics, teachers can work with those students requiring extra attention. Plus, these phonics videos help students learn to speak English and really hear the sounds involved.
Rock 'N Learn DVDs work great with any DVD player, computers with DVD players, projection screens, and interactive white boards. Some software kits for interactive white boards allow teachers to stop the lesson and add their own content to the lessons on our Phonics DVDs.

"Coming out in May are the Phonics Volume 1 and Phonics Volume 2 DVDs. I had the privilege to review the Phonics Volume 1 DVD before it is available to the public and I'm so happy that I was given that chance! Asher is gearing up for Kindergarten in the fall and he is loving his new Phonics DVD. He walks around singing the little songs and since he loves rhyming, he's really having fun with that aspect of the DVD. I like how they show the mouth saying the words so that he can see the correct way to form the sounds of the letters and words. They have the delayed answer feature like they do on many of their other DVDs that allow him the time to say the answer before they do. He gets so excited when he gets it right. They cover everything from letter sounds to vowels and consonants to blending to silent e practice and on and on! There are stories and even a bonus section "Reading for Fluency". They cover it all!" - yelliepooh.blogspot.com
"A....E....I....O.....U, A....E....I....O.....U. I have heard this over and over and over lately. And my son even knows that these are vowels. He also understands that the other letters of the alphabet are NOT vowels. I wish I could take credit for teaching him this, but I can't. We got this amazing BRAND NEW dvd from Rock N Learn called Phonics, Vol. 1." - frugalmomknowsbest.com
What's so cool about Rock 'N Learn? As Elina and many of our readers have found out, it is the colorful and vibrant way of presenting educational material to kids. These kids don't even know they're learning something. It's animated and when it comes to pronouncing the vowels, consonants, etc, you'll see a mouth, mouthing these words. Allowing the child to mimic it." - parentreviewers.com
"Rock 'N Learn sent out a DVD "Phonics Vol.1″ for a review and my boys had an absolute blast, watching it. My second child, is into learning to read and I have to say, this DVD absolutely rocks! The cool introduction with the rock-ish songs immediately drew his attention. This DVD has been in our DVD player and has not had a chance to come out. He has been repeating the words, and trying to read it before the presenter does. Sometimes he gets it, sometimes he's too late. But, it's like a game to him, and he enjoys the challenge very much.
"Intended for ages 6 & up, Phonics Volume 1 is an energized and educational DVD designed to help young people learn the basics of reading and pronouncing words. Coaching rules of phonics in the form of songs and rhymes, Phonics Volume 1 uses an "on-screen mouth" to help students check their own pronunciation as well as engaging animated sequences to spark interest. Phonics Volume 1 is a superb supplement for classroom DVD libraries, home schoolers, or parents interested in giving their kids an early start on the joy of reading. 70 minutes. Also highly recommended is Phonics Volume 2" - Midwest Book Review, Children's Bookwatch
