Rock 'N Learn Multiplication Rap DVD Review #ad

Wednesday, November 06, 2013 Posted by Dina N

My daughter had somewhat of a hard time mastering parts of the multiplication table. She used to have trouble with the 7s and 8s, and we spent a lot of time practicing. We used a dry erase board, played card games, and went over multiplication facts every day in the car.

Rock 'N Learn offers one way of making multiplication practice more fun. They sent me a free Multiplication Rap DVD for review. In it, D.J. Doc Roc - the Hip Hop Hamster - helps kids learn multiplication facts from 2 through 12. The hamster begins by reminding children that every number multiplied by zero equals zero, and every number multiplied by one equals that number. The DVD features simple animation and rhythm. Each multiplication fact is displayed horizontally and vertically on the screen, repeated twice for better retention. The hamster and his helpers sing a different song for each set of rap facts.

The Multiplication Rap DVD lasts about 46 minutes and is recommended for grades 3 and up. The company has an audio CD and book version as well. Rock 'N Learn was started over 26 years ago by two brothers, one a musician and the other a school psychologist.

    My son could really use this DVD. He is in 4th grade and is just learning his multiplication tables.

    My kids would love this DVD. My husband always ask me did you pay attention when you was in school? I say yes I have just forgot the boring history book stuff. I always add see I can remember a song almost every word that I have not heard in 10 years but I can't remember what I learned in school. I bet is someone made high school history wrap/country learning CDs teens would know a lot more and remember it too.

    The idea kind of reminds me of Schoolhouse Rock. I think the rap rhythm would be great for a math dvd!

    All the new ways to teach children how to learn...I don't know if that is a good or bad thing. All I know is music will definitely being an attention grabbing to kids...they love music.
