You’re never too old to learn Spanish!

August 6, 2013 § Leave a comment

As a child, Spanish was all I heard so when my family would ask my daughter a complicated question in Spanish and she has a lost look in her face, I got those looks. You know, the shaking heads and pursing lips and judging me silently because I never taught my daughter Spanish past the counting to twelve in spanish, and some very basic words and honestly, I kicked myself for not teaching her more than saying “Hola.”

So when Educents, a sort of flash-sale site company that has awesome learning deals for basically all your educational and schooling needs, contacted me to ask if I’d be interested in reviewing this program, I jumped at the chance because well, Dora the Explorer is kind of banned here.

Since the day it arrived, the CD and DVD have been alternating in the portable dvd player all throughout the house followed by my daughter repeating a few words here and there. I was pretty impressed with how fun Rock n’ Learn makes it for kids to grasp Spanish so easily, but I wasn’t over the moon impressed until two days later when she came into my bedroom in the morning, she smiled at me and said “Buenos dias, mama!”

Rock n Learn touches on all the basics when it comes to spanish-speaking, from counting to telling time and small talk conversation starters, perfect for children who want to learn the language.

One of the things I loved the most about Rock and Learn – Spanish was that it comes with two volume books to follow along and read. Because of that, my daughter is now picking up Spanish words in books. Related? My daughter might start dancing salsa in her sleep.

After my daughter is finished with this program, I might pass it on to my mother, who has taken more English-speaking courses than anyone else in the world and maybe then she’ll be as enthusiastic as my six year old daughter was!

There’s not a single bad thing to say about Rock n Learn – Spanish, other than “Can you please teach me how to dance Salsa?” All joking aside, this really is a great program that will make it fun for your children to learn Spanish, or anything for that matter. Rock n Learn has programs for school-related subjects to learning about the solar system.

I recommend signing up for their newsletter as they send out what is the latest deal and it might be just what you’re looking for! Educents is for everyone, a teacher or a parent. You’re never too young or too old to learn something new, especially with your children!

Just Dance 4 Review {feat. my 5yo daughter}

November 22, 2012 § Leave a comment

Thank you to Ubisoft for sponsoring this post. Please click here to learn more about Ubisoft. I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective. #UbiChamps

When Just Dance 4 was dropped off at my doorstep, I had just picked up my daughter from Kindergarten and it could not have been a better time for it to be dropped off! As soon as my kindergartener came home, she asked for a snack and told me she was bored.

I have an idea…. I told her.

I popped in Just Dance and let her pick out a song. Well, I will let the video show you how much fun {and cool dance moves} she has but I will tell you there is a song for everyone. The difficult level starts at easy and ends at hard. And trust me when I tell you, it is very very hard for me to get three stars on easy.

There are a few songs that you can download with Wii Points but even if you don’t you still have some catchy pop songs like One Direction’s What Makes You Beautiful, On The Floor by Jennifer Lopez which is probably one of the hardest songs for me, and the oh my god get this song out of my head Call Me Maybe to name a few of the featured songs.

Not only can you just have fun with JD4, there is a Just Sweat mode. After trying it for ten minutes, I already needed a shower. But the fun does not stop there., there’s a lot of stuff that you can unlock, I’m guessing when you get three stars on a song or when you build up your mojo.

After Thanksgiving dinner, we gave it a go to put a stop on the oh my god I want to nap forever after this dinner and it definitely worked. To quote my five-year old daughter “This game is totally rad!”

If you would like to buy Just Dance 4 you can click-through and buy it on Amazon! It makes a great gift for the music lovers and dancers in your life but pretty much perfect for anyone, young and the older crowd!
