HeidiSongs new Nursery Rhymes CD is HERE!!!
 

If you have read my blog posts before, you probably know that I REALLY believe in active learning!  So I have all of the hand motions all written up and ready for you to download.  (Sorry, the DVD will take at LEAST six months to create!  So our target date is approximately February, 2015.)  <– *UPDATE* The DVD is ALMOST DONE! The first 15 songs are ready and available on Vimeo!! Click here! 

For more info on getting these songs on Vimeo, visit my blog post here!
 

The movements are very SIMPLE, (as are the songs!) so I think that you should be able to follow them fairly easily.  Take a look below to see how we wrote up the motions to “Jack Be Nimble,” and then check it against the little video below of our sweet little friends Bella (six years old) and Raegan (three years old) dancing it for you!

One thing that I LOVE about this Nursery Rhymes CD is that all of the nursery rhymes have been turned into songs- even the ones that were previously only poems or chants.  My team of HeidiSongs co-writers and arrangers helped me make up some fun tunes for the nursery rhymes that didn’t seem to already have a traditional tune. So this will make learning to memorize the rhymes significantly easier for many children that learn best through music.  I was careful not to change any of the traditional words or lyrics, though.  All of the traditional words are the unchanged.

Each nursery rhyme has been given a melody on HeidiSongs' CD!

And as is the case for all of our music, adding motions makes it a great, multi-sensory learning experience!  So make sure that you download the free packet of handmotions here!

Add simple motions to the classic nursery rhymes to turn them into finger plays for active learning!

I hope you enjoy this CD, and that it will prove to be a great addition to your music collection, either at school or at home!  I will be posting more activities to go with the nursery rhymes soon, so stay tuned!
