“Rock 'N Learn presents Phonics Volume 2, a follow-up to Volume 1 and a step forward for beginning readers ready to master more advanced fluency skills.
“This 80-minute DVD provides lessons to help young viewers break down syllables, master phonics' tricky rule-breakers, and use context clues in order to read for meaning. It also includes lessons about vowel sounds, vowel pairs, and common vowel/consonant pairs. Like Volume 1, this DVD also has a feature called the ‘on-screen mouth,’ an actual mouth isolated to show the way to properly enunciate letters.
“For extra skill-building, the DVD includes a story with on-screen captions for read-along practice, and as a nice extra, the story can be played at two different speeds so kids can try out their new phonics skills at the pace that's right for them.
“Phonics Volume 2 uses rhymes to make rules easier to remember, and it does it all through a lively musical format with bright graphics and animated characters. The animation here is not the most advanced you'll ever see, but the lessons are top-notch for kids ready to tackle more challenging reading.” – Parents’ Choice Award
"Kids love learning to read while enjoying this phonics video set. Comical characters and fun songs add to the excitement. Pop performers introduce phonetic rules followed by plenty of practice reading words. Developed by educators, this logically sequenced program is easy to use and incorporates proven methods for teaching phonics. Delayed answers and the on-screen mouth help learners check reading and pronunciation. Teachers and parents love the way this program holds attention and complements any curriculum. Kids advance at their own pace while learning vowels, consonants, blends, digraphs, and other skills." – Dr. Toy's Best Vacation Products
"I just purchased the video and my students have responded well to it. I want you to know how pleased I am with Rock 'N Learn Phonics. I recommend it to anyone looking for a fun way to learn phonics. I think it is better than [well-known expensive program]. I've purchased both, and I definitely recommend Rock 'N Learn Phonics to all parents looking to boost reading skills." – first grade teacher
"In the ever-growing realm of phonics videos, this double set stands out. The music is a strong component, providing a learning rhythm, the graphics are clear and colorful, and the progressive skills presentation is correct. The ‘on-screen mouth’ is a helpful addition, as children can see how the sounds look as produced by a human rather than an animated mouth. The whole can be used at the learner's pace, either singly or in a group situation. Consider this a valuable contribution to the world of phonics." – Parents' Choice Recommended
"This Phonics DVD is excellent. It teaches children how to read by sounding out each letter or combinations of letters. If you know a child that you would like to help learn to read, give them these DVDs by Rock 'N Learn." – a satisfied parent
"Our 4-year old loves the phonics videos. He loves the music, the colorful backgrounds, and the silly things thrown in every now and then. He said to me the other day in a very serious way, 'Mommy, i-r-e makes the ire sound.' He is now trying to sound out the words he sees in his books." – Jean D.
"Thank you so very much for producing Rock 'N Learn Phonics. This video has helped my son tremendously with his reading skills. It has made learning words fun, especially with the music that he can easily remember." – Rebecca T.
"When it comes to comprehensive, affordable, and highly entertaining phonics programs, the clear choice is Rock 'N Learn Phonics." – Learning Imagination
Rock 'N Learn Phonics Volume 2 DVD is perfect for students after they've mastered the material on Volume 1. With Phonics Volume 2, students discover other ways besides "silent e" to make long vowels, such as: ai, ay, ee, and ie. They practice long vowel patterns and apply phonics rules by reading sentences with words that feature long vowel sounds.
Students also practice reading words and sentences with r-controlled vowels, diphthongs, the schwa sound, syllables, ending sounds, and more. Eventually, students read stories that go from simple to complex. By also singing along with songs about the stories, students have fun building their reading fluency.
Rock 'N Learn Phonics is designed to allow learners to practice specific chapters in the DVD as many times as needed before moving to other material. This self-paced approach provides repetition and fun review. Catchy songs and lots of humor ensure that students enjoy working with the material again and again to ensure mastery. Animated characters entertain students and motivate them to build the skills for becoming confident readers. The little human mouth found on many sections helps students properly form the sounds and check their pronunciation.
Busy parents appreciate an approach that's easy for students
to use on their own. These DVDs differ from complicated kits that require a lot of time to understand and figure out before being used. You won't find a phonics video program more thorough, easy to use, and entertaining.
Rock 'N Learn Phonics Volume 2 has been developed by educators who recognize that students have different abilities and ways of learning. This approach facilitates differentiated instruction by including different methods to practice the material. Plus, teachers can use our phonics DVDs with one group while providing individual attention to other students. The entertaining visual and musical format of Rock 'N Learn Phonics DVDs engages students and gets results when other methods have not. Students learn in a variety of ways, and Rock 'N Learn Phonics videos provide an effective tool to meet individual needs and unique learning styles.
Rock 'N Learn Phonics DVDs are perfect for regular education, special education, remedial classes, ELL, and adult basic education. Plus, many students have found our phonics videos to be helpful for learning to speak English. We have even received success stories of our phonics programs helping adults improve their reading and spelling skills.
Teachers can use Rock 'N Learn DVDs with DVD players, computers with a DVD player, interactive white boards, and projection screens. Interactive white boards often come with software that allows teachers to stop the video and add their own content to the lessons on our Phonics DVDs.
