HeidiSongs Review + Giveaway and Promo Code

Among my favorite music for classroom learning is HeidiSongs. Children love music and movement in the classroom, and I love to find music that also teaches the skills children need to know, such as math and literacy.

HeidiSongs Review + Giveaway

HeidiSongs has several CDs and DVDs that do just that: teach skills while children move and sing. The creator, Heidi, is also a real Kindergarten teacher, so her music is relevant to what young children enjoy and what they need to learn. (She also shares many ideas on her teaching blog!) Keep reading for a chance to win your own HeidiSongs product (plus there’s a promo code below).

I use the Singable Songs for Letters and Sounds DVD often in my Pre-K classroom. Prekinder kids learn better when music and movement is involved. As we all know, if they are sitting and inactive, it doesn’t take long before they stop listening and start playing. The Letters and Sounds DVD has two movement songs with the entire alphabet, “Alphabet Action” and “Sounds to Letters”. Then there’s 26 songs for each letter of the alphabet, so if you’re introducing a letter to the class, you could play the song for that letter. Each song teaches the formation of the letter. I’ve also used this DVD many times for rainy day recess so the children are still getting some of their energy out even though we have to stay inside.

Another thing I like about Heidi’s music is it truly is “singable”. I come across children’s music too often that is too complex for children to learn without hours of practice. These songs are simple, catchy, and easy to learn quickly.

    I love all the Heidi cds. I have used so many in my pre-k class. I think I really like numbers and shapes. I want the word families cd next or the dvd that combines just shapes and numbers and colors.

  2. Kathy I. says

    My students love the sight words songs as well as jumpin’ numbers and shakin’ shapes. I also use some of Heidi’s Counting Creatures worksheets and hidden CVC word worksheets. All of her products and great!

  3. Karen says

    Thank you Karen, for this give away! I love HeidiSongs and I use her Letter Sounds and Songs.

  4. Sara says

    I saw these for the first time while I was student teaching and I loved them. I am planning on purchasing them now that I know I will be teaching Pre-k next year. Super excited to use them with my kiddos!!!

  5. Jennifer Bodovsky says

    I love Heidi’s songs. We use them every day in my Pre Kindergarten classroom. On my wishlist is her classroom management DVD.

  6. Becki W says

    I haven’t actually used any of her items before but the letter dvd you describe would be an awesome supplement to help my children learn letter/sounds! Everything seems easier to learn when music/movement is involved! :-)

  7. L Green says

    My kinders love singing the 100 song. I pause every so often and we do something fun (stomp feet, jump, twist, touch or nose, etc) then resume counting.

  8. Allison says

    I’ve been talking about her for a year now!! I teach 3 year olds in a magnet school. Her alphabet songs (how to form them) has been in my wish list for a while now!! Thanks for be giveaways!!

  9. says

    I’ve never seen these before, but, WOW! I love this idea…because it’s so like me! No coincidence that we share the same name, I guess. I home schooled our son and now have a grandson that I am looking forward to some fun teaching times over the years! Any product would be greatly loved and used! I am going to check them ALL out soon. Thanks!

  10. tynetots says

    I just meet Heidi a few weeks ago. What a lovely person. The kids are loving the sight word DVD. I need to get more!

  11. Sarah says

    I have never used these but would love to try them the sing and spell sight words or jumping numbers sound like one my boys would love.

  12. Donna says

    I was just window shopping at Heidisongs this morning. I would love to win this giveaway and stretch my money even farther.

  14. Sara says

    My kiddos LOVE the color songs from HeidiSongs…it really helps them learn how the words are spelled!

  15. Sue Hills says

    I have not used any of her products but the Letter and Sound dvd sounds like it would be great to use in our PreK classroom. Thanks for offering this!!

  16. Hannah says

    What a GREAT way to teach so many different learning skills! All of these CD’s and DVD’s are incredible! If I had to choose just one I’d have to say that I’ve been eyeing Jumpin’ Numbers and Shakin’ Shapes. I’m teaching preschool for the first time next year and would love to implement HeidiSongs as a fun and engaging way to learn!

  17. Tammy says

    I would love to have the letters DVD & CD to help introduce the letters and sounds to my 4 year old!

  18. MaryAnne says

    I love skills and movement CDs and DVDs … I’d not heard of Heidi’s before … I found the samples delightful

  19. Angela McEachern says

    Our Pre-K team was introduced to Heidi’s products last year at a conference and were truly impressed. We would
    LOVE to have these to use in our classrooms! We all have favorites but my favorites are the letters and sounds.

  20. Suzette says

    I used Heidi Songs Letters/Sounds with last year’s Pre-K class and their kindergarten readiness rate as a whole improved by eleven percentage points compared to the previous year’s class. I was pleasantly surprised.
    Her DVD’s are a staple in my class. Rarely a week goes by that I don’t use them. I recently purchased her revised Colors and Shapes DVD. She uses professional performers and amazing animated art to enhance the content. My Pre-Kers beg for it! I’m waiting to see if she comes out with more “updated” DVD’s because I will be the first in line to buy them.

  21. A Wright says

    This is the first time I have heard of Heidi Songs…I would love to have the Preschool Complete Classroom Combo. This looks like something that would be a huge help for my classroom. Many of my students struggle with literacy and math.

  22. Julie B. says

    The letters and sounds and numbers and shapes DVD s are wonderful. All my 4′s learned their numbers, shapes, letters and sounds thanks to these DVD s. Worth every penny!

  23. Donna says

    I love and use Musical Math and Colors and Shapes with Pre-K and K students. Great fun with much successs! I would enjoy trying any and all other products from Heidi Songs! Thanks for sharing;)

  27. Kelly M says

    I would love any of the HeidiSongs DVDs! At the top of my wish list is the Singable Songs for Letters and Sounds DVD.
