Rock N Learn: Sight Words 2 Learning DVD (A Fun Way To Start Preparing Kids To Read)

If you have kids or work with kids, you will want to take note of Rock N Learn's fun music learning videos and cds. Our family was sent the Rock N Learn Sight Words Level 2 DVD to check out and we love it.  The videos are upbeat and fun, with great colorful characters that emphasize the importance of having fun and learning.  The songs are fun and catchy, and the kids will dance and sing along with the characters on the screen.  There are also snippets of real video footage (check out the black bear in the video below), which I think is great because it ties the video to real-life things.

Sight Words Level 2 covers 68 common sight words and has a bonus section for word shapes.  These words are on the Primer Dolch list, which is the widely recognized in the education field and covers pre-k through 3rd grade.  These words are important to learn by sight because they often don't always follow traditional phonics rules.

When developing this DVD, the creators worked alongside reading teachers to make sure kids would succeed AND have fun.

The kids love this DVD, which is great as a parent, because I know they are having fun AND learning, and it is especially great, as Logan is entering Kindergarten and Brandon isn't quite ready for pre-school but he is getting introduced to these words early.  I can feel great about letting them watch this DVD, and they don't even know that they are learning.  I can't wait to check out other Rock N Learn DVDs.

Another great thing about these is that they get kids interacting and learning on so many levels by encouraging reading (words are shown on the screen), hearing, and speaking (talk along with the characters).

Check out this sample clip from the Rock N Learn Sight Words Level 2 dvd (found on the Rock N Learn You Tube channel):
