Rock 'N Learn Phonics DVD Review & Giveaway

Rock'N Learn,Inc., owned and operated by its founders, Richard and Brad Caudle, 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.

As documented in hundreds of testimonials received each year, Rock'N Learn programs work!!. No wonder, they 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.

Rock'N Learn Phonics DVD and audio CD programs provide an easy and fun way to learn the phonics skills that lead to reading and spelling success. Catchy songs and rhymes help students remember basic phonics rules, vowels, consonants, blends, digraphs, silent e, and much more. Delayed answers and the on-screen mouth (Phonics videos) allow learners to check their progress and use these programs independently.

Check out these Phonics DVDs!!!!



Practicing the phonics skills that lead to reading and spelling success is more fun than ever.

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.
