We've animated our award winning Nursery Rhymes so your child can now follow the music, movements and animations for a fun, active learning experience. The video includes a variety of illustration styles to help keep interest and repeatability. The music was written to teach children the basic nursery rhymes that are often taught in preschools, homes, and kindergarten classrooms everywhere! Each nursery rhyme has been set to music to make memorization quick and easy! Plus, we have written out some great suggested movements for you to make it a FUN and ACTIVE learning experience for your little ones! You can download them free at the link below.
Parents, caregivers, and teachers have been teaching their children nursery rhymes for hundreds of years. The reason that nursery rhymes continue to be popular is because they help children develop language, vocabulary, and help them form the foundation for learning to rhyme words on their own. Many nursery rhymes also contain phrases that start with words that all have the same beginning sounds, so this helps children begin to become aware of the sounds of their language.
As children learn these traditional rhymes, they exercise and stretch their memory skills, which helps them prepare to memorize future material. This means that learning nursery rhymes helps the brain “practice memorizing” so that it will be ready to remember harder things, such as the alphabet, sight words, or math facts.
Please note that our HeidiSongs DVD includes only the first verse of each nursery rhyme. We did this to keep it simple for very young children, and to help all children be successful at memorizing them. To help make this an active learning experience, download our free illustrations and notes on the motions at the link below. When kids put their whole body into it, they can’t help but learn!

No DVD drive in your computer? Many computers no longer have built in drives, but an inexpensive external drive will get you up and running again! Check out one of these drives that utilize a simple USB connection from Amazon.
Need to embed movies into PowerPoint or Smartboard workbooks? Or do you have a bad internet connection that is not being updated for the coming year? We have USB drive options available, so please email us for more details or a quote.
Still prefer to use Vimeo On Demand? Many of our customers have been happy with our Vimeo streaming options, that offer a 12 month rental for as little as $6.99 a year. One nagging issue with Vimeo streaming is that all the songs are combined in a single movie, and finding individual songs can be a challenge. The Vimeo player app allows you to scroll along the timeline to find the song you want, and we’ve added timecode tags to help find each song, but it’s not ideal for some teachers! Vimeo has not updated it’s services to improve this situation, so we are recommending UScreen for ease of use in the classroom! Even so, we've had wonderful feedback from our Vimeo customers, so you might want to check it out to compare features for yourself.©Heidi Butkus - All HeidiSongs materials, including CDs, DVDs, streaming media, printable files and printed books, are for use in ONE classroom.
