DVD Review - Rock 'N Learn Money and Making Change

Penny and Bill know how to shake things up when it comes to counting money and making change. Cool songs and games provide plenty of practice with real-world skills. Learn about coins and how they relate to one another, strategies for counting cash, "skip counting," expressing money in written terms, how to make change, and more. You’ll have lots of fun as you gain valuable skills you can bank on.

For ages 6 & up. Approx. 57 minutes.

About the DVD

Penny and Bill have a problem. With their big concert to play, they must repair a broken speaker. Fortunately, Penny has been saving money in her piggy bank. But just how much does she have?
Penny and Bill learn how to recognize coins, a little about the history of money, why coins and bills are starting to look different, and much more. They learn strategies for sorting coins and cash and use "skip counting" to find out exactly how much money they have.

After lots of counting money, Penny and Bill learn how to make change by pretending to buy funny items at a garage sale. You'll have time to practice counting money and making change right along with them before you hear the answers. Finally, at the big concert that evening, guess who's invited to join Penny, Bill on the front row?

My Take on the DVD
This DVD does a great job at teaching kids the difference between American money (coins). Through fun characters and music the DVD presents a topic that always intrigues kids (what child does not want money or their parents' money). 

What I loved about this DVD was the fun characters that led the change in learning. With fun names (Penny and Bill), viewers are taken on a journey into all of the coins that we have and how they can keep track of and count the money that they currently have and the money they will have in the future.

The DVD was fun and engaging and my eldest loved it, as she is my entrepreneur in our family!

Overall, this DVD is a great resource for all kids to help them in being more knowledgeable about how money works. I just hope that it helps with my girls' chores, as maybe now they will do them without a hassle... but only time will tell!
