Rock 'N Learn Alphabet DVD Giveaway and Review

Children sing along with catchy tunes for each letter, play musical games, and learn old and new alphabet songs as they reinforce letter recognition skills, learn letter-sound relationships, and develop a richer vocabulary. As a special bonus… on the alphabet DVD version, children learn to print each capital and lowercase letter, as well as numbers 0 through 9. Plus, the recently revised DVD now features exciting animation.

We recently have started a “home school preschool” with Dexter, he is three and to young for public pre-k and I am not ready to have him away from me yet! So we started with his ABC’s first. First I started by having him do little activities and flash cards every day. We did one letter at a time and within about two months he had gotten all  his letters! I was really surprised but I noticed he wasn't retaining them. He would know them for a day or two but then when reviewed them I could tell he wasn't to sure of them.
When I heard about the DVD at first I was a little skeptical. I am a very um.. stubborn mom. I usually always think, there is nothing a tv can teach my child that I can’t. Both my boys are not allowed allowed to watch tv, if you want to know why you can read about it here. Anyways I read over the description and thought okay maybe this will help him. After contacting the company I received one dvd to giveaway and one to review. When it came I was pretty excited.
As soon as we started watching it I felt a little more at ease with the thought of my child watching tv to learn. He was pretty glued to the TV so I was glad it was only 35 minutes. That is our max TV watching time. I feel like he did learn a lot from it and it has helped him with retaining the letters.
It shows both the upper and the lower case of the letter that you're learning. It reinforces letter recognition which is what seems to be helping him remember his letters better now!
There is a special bonus at the end of the DVD we do on days we don’t watch the movie. The goal is to  point each capital and lowercase letter. It also goes through number 0 – 9.
It’s not something that I will use as a main learning tool, but that is just because of my TV stance. It is so great for little ones and has helped reinforce what I am teaching Dexter. I can see how a lot of parents would use this as a main tool for them to teach their kids. It was informative and easy for kids to follow.!
