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)
* Indicates Singable 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.

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.
