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.

It's always important to test your device before you make your rental purchase through Vimeo, as we don't have the ability to refund purchases if your device is unsupported or if you have a poor or inconsistent internet connection. 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.
