Rock N Learn DVD review and giveaway

Rock N Learn Sight Words Review and Giveaway! By Brae Craig from  I am NOT a VOLCANO (and other such stories) Blog  
Some of you might remember my Rock N Learn Letter Sounds Review a couple of weeks ago. In case you missed it, let me tell you a little bit about this company. 
Rock N Learn is a company that creates CDs and DVDs that are educational, set to great music, and designed specifically to promote reading, and to help your child prepare for reading. 
This time, I was so excited to review the Sight Words DVD, which thrills me, because THIS is something my 5 1/2 year old son needs help with. He can read. I know he can. But he'll often read big ol' words without any problem at all, and then stop and sound out "it" or "his" or "there"- which is frustrating, as a mother, and frustrating to his teachers. It's also frustrating to him. 
Having been so into the first Rock N' Learn video I reviewed, my kids were more than ready to pop this puppy in the player and watch! Personally, I liked this video better, myself. It was full of music, and had words at the bottom of the screen, like a sing along, that would light up when they sang the word- so the child would look at the word and 'read" it as they listened. My kids didn't get as much of a chance to interact with the video as they did with Letter Sounds- there weren't any little clocks in the corner they had to beat with the answer, and they enjoyed that so much, i would have loved to see that. Still, it was a hit in our house!!!! So, once again, Rock N Learn has given me the opportunity to give away a DVD or CD of your choice!
