Product Description

Nobody's sharper than Marko the Pencil when it comes to helping students read for meaning and prepare for tests. His tips are super-effective and his outrageous antics keep students on task. With Marko's guidance, students ace a practice test by learning how to read passages, find key words, and determine the best answers. This DVD helps students identify the main idea, use context clues, and make inferences.

Review

AWARD WINNER!
This products had very good educational content. It accurately reflected the test-taking strategies my daughter learned in third grade last year. It even used the same terminology.--Review for iParenting Media Award
What a interesting concept. As a tragic test-taker myself, I know the anxiety it can bring. What a great way to get the point across to the kids at a young but vital age. Here in Texas they are taking some major tests at this age, and this would help calm their nerves and help them carry some strategies with them.--Carolina Pendleton --iParenting Media Award


Test-taking skills are increasingly important as high-stakes testing becomes the norm. This program teaches students solid test-taking strategies in the subject area of reading. Marko the Pencil is enthusiastic, optimistic, and chock full of testing tips. The strategies are solid and would be useful in test-taking. --School Library Journal

My daughter has dyslexia and sometimes has issues with comprehension. This DVD helped her learn some techniques that have helped her to dissect what she is reading and glean information that isn't necessarily directly stated. Since she has watched this DVD, her comprehension has improved considerably and she is often able to discern the meaning in her reading that escapes her twin brother (who has no LD)

I used this for my middle schoolers around test-prep time. It's a good refresher of test taking skills. It is geared toward elementary school aged children, but I think that even 3rd graders would find it cheesy. I just warn my kids ahead of time that it is very silly but has good information. One of them told me that because it was "so lame" he actually remembered parts of it because they made fun of it. Whatever works!

Fun way to learn. Children get tired of having to sit in and learn in a traditional way. Rock and Learn dvd's make learning relaxing and fun. More like play time. Not stressful and they can rewind and replay as many times as they want. Wonderful!!!

Daughter needed help in 2nd grade taking tests. This video was absolutely wonderful in helping her understand better in class and on tests. So the other 3 kids watched it too!

I bought this for my son and actually got a few tips for myself. The pencil is corney and the animation is a bit weird, but I am old school. My son learned a lot and I am very happy for that- corney pencil and all.

I was thrilled that by watching this video twice before taking a test, my son really seemed to grasp some concepts that had been challenging for him. For him, this style of learning really worked.

My granddaughter was having trouble with her reading comprehension and this video definitely helped to make math more fun to learn. She has definitely improved her grades and is no longer behind in her class. I would definitely suggested this video for anyone who has a child that is struggling with reading comprehension and want to make it easier and fun to learn. When kids are having fun they are more receptive to learning.
