I am a credentialed Reading Specialist with over 20 years experience in the Primary classroom.
After years of developing my own curriculum, my peers urged me to present this material at the California Kindergarten Conference, which generated an overwhelming response to publish my program.
I have since grown this basic curriculum into the 'HeidiSongs' product line and website, which now includes both music and videos, plus presentations and keynotes nationwide.
See the most dynamic presentation of the HeidiSongs material at one of the education conferences listed below. With new invitations and schedule confirmations coming in all the time, check back often to see if Heidi will be in your area soon!

Why does multi-sensory teaching work so well?
Research shows and studies support that in order to get the best learning outcome possible, children need to actively and simultaneously use as many of their senses as they can when they learn and practice. For example, if you are trying to teach a child a new word, the child should ideally see it, say it, hear it, and do it - all at the same time. HeidiSongs products do just that in a fun and motivational way!
Our products also meet the Common Core State Standards and you can find more information and how the program is aligned to those standards HERE!
