Hidden Color Word Worksheets - These 11 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! Color words covered are: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, black, white, gray, and pink.
The Shape Song Book Project - A book about the four basic shapes in a child’s environment. Includes the following shape pages: The Circle Sun, The Square Box Present, The Triangle Hat, The Rectangle Door, Circle/Triangle Ice Cream Cones, Rectangle/Square Robot, Every Shape House.
Multi-sensory Learning methods include using multiple senses simultaneously to teach and practice the material, thus increasing the number of pathways around the brain able to absorb and retain the information.
The movement of the hands work to activate the muscle memory that some children need to help them remember the name of that color or shape. The catchy songs, fun animations, supportive graphics and spelling and sounding out of the target words all work to help your child learn quickly and easily.
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.
