Review and giveaway: Rock 'N Learn- Getting Ready for Kindergarten


A few months back I was having a conversation with one of my closest friends, who happens to be a kindergarten teacher. She made a comment about skills that teachers expect students to have by the time they start kindergarten. I realized then that I probably needed to get my act together and figure out what those skills are and start getting my kids prepared! So, when I had the opportunity to review another DVD from Rock 'N Learn, I asked for Getting Ready for Kindergarten.


This DVD is 45 minutes long and is designed for the 3-5 year age group. Here's a bit more about it:
Jill and Joey are so excited about starting kindergarten! Your kids will get excited too, as they learn essential skills through fun songs, animated characters, and real children. Skills include colors, counting, tying shoes, following directions, holding a pencil, printing letters and numbers, listening, number recognition and printing numbers through ten, getting dressed, left/right directions, and more.
Ethan has really been enjoying this DVD, requesting to watch it often.  I was amazed at how much information the DVD contains! It is presented in a very kid-friendly format with animation, music, video of real kids and more.  It's another example of a show that your child will watch for entertainment and not necessarily realize that he/she is learning too.  This is a very handy tool to have, and I'm hoping it gives us a good foundation for getting Ethan the skills he needs for school.

Rock 'N Learn has tons of other DVDs, CDs and books available for a wide range of ages and on a lot of subjects. If there's an educational need in your home, be sure to check out what Rock 'N Learn has to offer. If you use the code: JQ7711, you can get 25% off your order!

And I have good news! One of you will win your choice of DVD or CD from Rock 'N Learn! Open to US mailing addresses only, please. I'm running this giveaway with Rafflecopter, so be sure to enter using the widget below.




Disclosure: I received this DVD and the opportunity to give another one away. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.
