Feedback & Friends
"We used the HeidiSongs DVD's last year all the time. I "piloted" them in Alabama and they were WONDERFUL. What I did was this: each morning we had a 10 minute slot (this was around February when they arrived) and I would put in the dvd. We would do the songs for 10 minutes and the next morning pick up where it left off. When the dvd was over we started back at the beginning - on Friday's we had a "spelling test" on five of the words from the dvd. (I didn't actually take a grade on it . It was just to see how well they could spell them and to help get them ready for 1st grade) They did wonderful! Out of 17 students - 2 were unable to get any words (1 of those is being retained in kindergarten) 1 got about 2 words (he is also being retained) The other 14 made 100% or only missed 1 every week! If they hesitated I could say "remember the song" and they would start singing to themselves and be able to write the word! It was great!"
Numbers & Shapes Vol. 1
24 Full Color Cards - B/W on Back
The math lesson shown here uses the Jumpin' Numbers and Shakin' Shapes flashcards, each with a character embedded into the number or shape. The character jogs the childs memory to help him remember a motion and the name of the number or shape.
Heidi Demonstrates the Jumpin' Numbers and Shakin' Shapes Movements!
Fun, character artwork with Color Illustrations on the front & B/W Number or Shapes only on the back!
These flash cards are used to drill the children on the numbers and shapes. The flash cards have a character embedded into each number or shape, and the children are asked to respond simultaneously with an action and the name of the number or shape when they see it. The characters on the cards also help jog the child’s memory to help him remember the motion and the concept in a system that is similar to the method used in Zoo-Phonics.
It is this simultaneous response makes this a multi-sensory activity that optimizes the child's chances of remembering the concept presented. This method often works to teach even children with learning disabilities the numbers and shapes. And, used in conjunction with the musical component, it has been reported by parents and teachers alike to have worked well with children who have Autism and even Down's Syndrome.
Printed card set includes:24 cards for each of the 19 songs on the CD & DVD, plus a smaller flashcard set that can be used for individual or small group drills. All cards include full-color number/shape character designs on the front, with matching B/W number/shape designs on the back.
