The true test of any product is using it with a room of five and six year olds. Kids are sure to have an opinion and they’re not afraid to sugar coat it. Heidi Songs DVDs have always been a HUGE hit with my kindergarteners. The kids smile along with the silly songs and quickly learn the reading and math skills the tunes teach. It’s hard to beat fun-filled learning.

That’s why I’m so excited that Heidi Songs is teaming up with our other sponsors to generously offer a series of summer giveaways on Playdough to Plato. This time around, they are giving away a 3-pack of Math DVDs:

Jumpin’ Numbers and Shakin’ Shapes Volume 1: Helps kids with number 1-10, 7 basic shapes and other counting skills.

Jumpin’ Numbers 11-30 Volume 2: Teaches kids how to read and write the numbers 11-30.

Musical Math: Works on patterning, skip counting, addition and coin recognition.

The 3-pack is sure to have your kids smiling their way to better math skills.

Addition

The first thing I purchased for my class was the Letters & Sounds dvd and cd. My kiddos love them! Not only has it been a big hit in my class but I was able to reach a student that I was working with and nothing seemed to help him catch on. The dvd was the trick! The music, singing, action along with the visual was the key. I have yet to purchase any number dvd’s but want to add them soon!!!
