Rock 'N Learn Getting Ready for Kindergarten Video

Fall 2005 DVD
Ages: 4 - 5 yrs.
VHS Price: $19.99
Review:
With its combination of animation and live actors, the pace is just the right speed for young children. The music is cheery and upbeat; the lessons are valuable and relevant. The two characters on the DVD take the viewer through life skills like setting the table, tying shoes, and making the bed, academic and pre-academic skills like counting, learning their letters and writing their name, as well as social/play skills like playing with blocks and following directions. Certain lessons are repeated several times for optimal learning. Not only will these lessons promote school readiness in terms of skills, they will also help assure children nervous about starting school that they will have a positive experience.
