Recently, as I perused the data from my first report cards, I realized, as a whole, my class was really struggling with teen numbers. They are TRICKY – that’s for sure, but we needed to focus on them and try to get the majority of the class on track. As I was flipping through my resources at school, I stumbled upon my HeidiSongs CDs and DVDs. Heidi Butkus is a kindergarten teacher who created these resources to help her own students. They are extremely catchy tunes that really do help with remembering skills and concepts.
HeidiSongs has a CD or DVD for almost everything you can think of… sight words, letters, sounds, numbers, math concepts, you name it. In my classroom, we have been singing and moving to the songs for numbers 11-19 for a few weeks and I’m starting to see a big improvement. Her catchy tunes really do hit the spot. Heidi also has a blog with LOTS of free resources. Her music and blog are truly invaluable.
As my holiday gift to one lucky winner, I’m giving away the following HeidiSongs prize package (click on each for a product overview):
- Jumpin’ Numbers and Shakin’ Shapes CD
- Musical Math CD
- Sing & Spell #1 the Sight Words CD
- Jumpin’ Numbers Vol. 2 – 11 through 30 DVD
