Feedback & Friends
"I would just like to send my sincere thanks to HeidiSongs for helping my students confidently learn their sounds and sight words. I work at a very remote aboriginal school in outback Western Australia and the children just LOVE all of your songs. They beg me to play them every day and I have had the most astounding results in class recognition of sounds and sight words. I had a wonderful moment today where one girl who previously had trouble remembering her sight words could spell all of the sight words from volume one. I would ask her to spell a word and I could see her mumble the tune to the song as she correctly spelled the words! I love the confidence that your songs have given my kids. The tunes to the songs are very sweet and easy to remember without becoming monotonous and there are some great and fun actions added in for the kids too eg W song: 'first down then up then down then up SIT DOWN!' They just roll around laughing at the end of that one! Thank-you so much for your dedicated work, it is brilliant.!"
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.
