These songs were written to help children learn phonemic awareness, reading skills, and seasonal themes. Additionally there are songs that support concepts of print, such as identifying letters, numbers, sentences, and parts of a story. The balance of the songs go along with our "Singable Books To Make and Read," such as "Our School Farm" and "The Zoo Song" The lyrics from each song form the text of a book that kids can make, read, sing, and keep! Complete masters, pictures, and detailed instructions are included in the CD-Rom, "Printable Projects For Language Arts," and are also available as individual downloads.
Concepts covered are:
Letters and Words, What’s a Sentence?, Brother Starts the Same as Bop (Words that begin the same), Sound It Out, Touchdown Without Touch (Syllable Deletion), Syllable Counting, Parts of a Story, The Rhyme Song*, Just Read It*, The Shapes Song*, Our School Farm*, The Halloween Song*, Dinner’s Ready* (Thanksgiving theme), Christmas Countdown 20-10*, Let’s Build a Snowman*, Look Out, Fishies!*, Addition Doubles (Dinosaur theme)*, The Zoo Book*, Summer, Winter, Spring, Fall (*All seasons make one book)

The lyrics from each song form the text of the "Singable Books" that kids can make, read, sing, and keep! Complete masters, pictures, and detailed instructions are included in the CD-Rom, "Printable Projects For Language Arts," and are also available as individual downloads.

HeidiSongs has partnered with Vimeo to offer you streaming, on-demand videos of many of our DVD's through a one-year rental with Vimeo! This platform brings you unlimited, easy playback on all your devices, anywhere you have a connection. Once your rental purchase is made through Vimeo, all you need is the Vimeo Player app for your devices, and/or an up-to-date browser on your computer, with a fairly fast internet connection, and you're all set! (Please note that this a separate transaction through Vimeo.) While many folks will still prefer the convenience and accessibility of our video DVD's, this video on-demand option is a nice addition for your iPad, phone, or other tablet device. Plus, the one year rental option is a nice way to try our wonderful HeidiSongs videos in your home or classroom, or to supplement your existing DVD's with multiple viewing devices. One other thing to remember is that our on-demand movies play straight through, with no chapter divisions for skipping to specific songs or menu's for navigation, so please be aware of that.
It's important to test your device before you make your rental purchase through Vimeo, as we don't have the ability to refund purchases made to Vimeo if your device is unsupported or if you have a poor quality internet connection to your school or home. 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.
