This DVD was created to teach children how read by teaching them to blend sounds together into words. Sounding out words is very often the biggest road block for many children in learning to read; they simply cannot get past the hurdle of learning to blend sounds together, and it’s no fun to practice! This DVD turns reading practice into a fun activity that kids don’t have to sit still for; in fact, they are much better off if they get up and move along! HeidiSongs products were created for active learners, and this DVD is a great example of how you can harness the energy of your creative, wiggly learners and focus it where it is often needed the most.
This DVD solves the problem of learning to sound out words by setting all of the steps to music, making it FUN for all! And singing the letter sounds creates a natural bridge in that process of learning to blend the sounds together, because when you stretch out the sounds of a word, you are almost singing them already, just not on a certain “pitch.” When we learn to read by singing, the entire class sings the sounds of a word together, then blends them together, and then practices reading the words together!
It has been working like magic in Heidi’s classroom to help the children learn to read little three letter CVC words! Heidi’s students have never been more successful in learning to read until this CD was completed, and the DVD finished up the job for those that were still struggling by adding in the visual component for those that still needed more. We hope your students also greatly benefit from this highly recommended resource, which contains one song for each of the word families in the HeidiSongs CVC Book, Volume 1.

Heidi discovered this when she tried to use the videos on her school computer, only to realize the Window's Internet Explorer browser was outdated, and she had to call the district for an update. An easy test is to verify that the movie "trailer" plays well on your device or computer, if it does, you should not have a problem with purchasing a movie.
