This CD was written to teach children how read by teaching them to blend sounds together into words. In order to read a consonant-vowel-consonant (CVC) word, children must say the letter sounds in a word, stretch them out, and then blend them together to read the word.
This is very often the biggest road block for many children in learning to read; they simply cannot get past the hurdle of learning to blend sounds together, and it’s no fun to practice!
This CD solves that problem by setting all of the steps of sounding out a word to music, and makes it FUN! And singing the letter sounds creates a natural bridge in that process of learning to blend the sounds together, because when you stretch out the sounds of a word, you are almost singing them already, just not on a certain “pitch.” When we learn to read by singing, the entire class sings the sounds of a word together, then blends them together, and then practices reading the words together!
And it has been working like magic in Heidi’s classroom to help the children learn to read little three letter CVC words! Heidi’s students have never been more successful in learning to read until this CD was completed. We hope your students also greatly benefit from this highly recommended resource, which contains one song for each of the word families in the HeidiSongs CVC Book, Volume 1.
