Sing & Spell the Sight Words - Volume 6 Animated DVD

The sixth volume in our Sing & Spell the Sight Words series features 26 great, award winning, animated videos and word songs for teaching kids to read and spell common words, such as "went," "many," "does," and "off," just to name a few! Each sight word song has a fun HeidiSongs "twist" to it that will keep your kids motivated and jammin' along with the music until they learn to read and spell them all!  This title nearly completes all of the first 100 Dolch words spelling songs, which are the most commonly used high frequency words in the English language.  Knowing these words is foundational and a basic skill for every beginning reader, so they are perfect for Kindergarten and first grade!  Want to watch on digital video?  Just click here for streaming on internet video on Vimeo for a nominal monthly or yearly fee!  This collection also includes "The Opposite Song," which accompanies our adorable learning book, The Opposites Rhyming Picture Book.  Together with this video, the book becomes a "singable book," which is the very best kind for beginning readers and emergent readers alike!

Early childhood teachers know that all of the Dolch and Fry words must be mastered, and sing along, move along songs are the easiest way to learn EVER!  In fact, these songs that spell are used by special education teachers everywhere for kids with special needs such as dyslexia, learning disabilities, ADD, ADHD, autism, and developmental delays.  The International Dyslexia Association agrees that multisensory methods, such as HeidiSongs spelling songs videos, are the very BEST way to reach children with reading difficulties, and help them move from emergent reader to beginning reader!  Kids really DON’T have to sit down to learn!

These videos are so special that many of them were chosen for inclusion in the new, nationally adopted Benchmark Advance Language Arts curriculum!  Experts agree that HeidiSongs are the BEST!  Don't expect a low quality, "free" video on YouTube to get you the same results.

Words Covered Are:

ask, ate, day, does, every, give, going, her, him, just, many, must, no, off, only, our, ran, show, soon, take, them, think, walk, well, went, yes, Bonus Track - Opposite Song

The artwork for this set of songs is actually claywork, designed and created by our talented friend and children's book illustrator, Laura Ludwig Hamor!  Laura's skills include all forms of media, but when she's not illustrating a new story or picture book, children all over have benefitted from her classes in claywork and design! Look for her wonderful work on our animated Sing & Spell Vol. 4 DVD! Thanks again, Laura!!

The Importance of Sight Words
“Sight word” is the term that many teachers use to describe a word in written English that cannot be sounded out, and therefore must be memorized on sight. The reason that most sight words cannot be sounded out is because they do not follow the regular spelling and phonics patterns that are often taught to children when they are beginning to read.  For example, in the word, “the,” the reader must first recognize that the “th” together forms one sound /th/, and the “e” makes neither the short or long /e/ sound, but a short /u/ sound. Likewise, the word, “said” may start and end phonetically, but the middle of the word has short /e/ sound spelled with two letters (“ai”) that are not sounded at all.

In addition, when the children find the words or movements amusing, they are also more likely to remember that song/word, since it touched their emotional side as well.  All of this adds up to a learning tool that can reach even special needs children in a regular classroom setting, while at the same time keeping the faster learners happy and challenged as well- because ALL kids learn best when learning is FUN and ACTIVE!

Basic DVD includes the following three printable downloads:

Includes Sing & Spell Vol. 6 - Songbook & Worksheets Printable Download
Sing & Spell Vol. 6 - Songbook & WorksheetsThis set of worksheets is actually a "cloze" activity that uses the words to each song. On each sheet, the words to the song are written out for the child. However, each time the child comes to the "target" word of the song, there is a blank space for him to fill in the word. This allows the child to practice writing the target word several times, but within the context of the song. For added help, the first time the word comes up in the song, the blank has traceable letters for the child to practice writing that word on the space. After that, he or she simply fills in each blank space with the missing word. Includes 116 pages: Instructions, 27 songbook pages, and 78 cloze activity worksheets..

These fun worksheets are a hit with Heidi's students! Children use their visual discrimination and reading skills to find the target sight word and color in the section that it is in. When finished correctly, the word itself is revealed! The children LOVE this, and enjoy proudly showing off their finished papers. Kids have the option of coloring in the rest of the words or not at the teacher's discretion, allowing teachers to let this activity last a longer or shorter time as needed for classroom management purposes. These worksheets also make a great resource for homework or independent class time, since they are practically self checking. Includes 27 pages: A worksheet for 26 sight words found on Sing & Spell Vol. 6, plus instructions.

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.
