Sing & Spell the Sight Words - Volume 3 Classic DVD

This is a great set of sight word song videos to help kids learn to read AND spell the basic high frequency words just by singing and dancing along!  Kids love these songs that spell because they are fun and active; no pencil needed and you don’t need to sit down to learn!  This is an amazing, proven way for kids with special needs to learn, such as children with  ADHD, ADD, autism, and other developmental delays. This particular "classic" video collection shows Heidi demonstrating the movements and the target sight word ONLY in the top left corner, and the lyrics on the bottom so that the children can read along.  It is not animated, so as to be less distracting for children that may do better with this format.  Early childhood educators agree that these learning songs for kids are the easiest way to help children learn basic foundational skills such as site words, also known as Dolch words.  These sight word songs are an amazing intervention tool for kids that need a multisensory way of learning!  And this set has those tricky homophones, such as there, they’re, and their, and we’re and were.  The other “wh” words that can be hard to learn to spell are also in this collection, such as when, where, who, and why.  These word songs are perfect for those advanced kindergartners, first graders, or second graders that need a little help learning these confusing words.  Many of these word songs and videos are also included in the exclusive Benchmark Advance Language Arts Program as well!  Check out this award winning program in our sample videos!

Words Covered Are:
again, away, because, come, could, help, house, how, jump, little, look, make, one, run, should, their, there, they're, three, to, too, two, want, we're, were, when, where, who, why, and would.

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. 3 - Songbook & Worksheets Printable Download
Sing & Spell Vol. 3 - 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 123 pages: Instructions, 29 songbook pages, and 87 cloze activity worksheets.

Includes Sing & Spell Vol. 3 Hidden Sight Word PuzzlesSing & Spell Vol. 3 - Hidden Sight Word 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 31 pages: A worksheet for 30 sight words found on Sing & Spell Vol. 3, plus instructions.

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.
