I love all of Heidi's products! They have been instrumental in helping my kids learn letters and sounds. It seems to me that young children can learn anything through music and song. Her sight word CD's are my absolute FAVORITE!! If you do not have them already.... YOU NEED THEM. When my students are writing and reading and they have trouble with a word wall word, they break into song and it helps them figure it out and write the word or read it.
Through the posts to Deanna's big giveaway, I discovered Heidi's Sounds Fun- Phonics Flash Cards. These cards look like a definite must for kinder and first grade classrooms- especially for this time of year! There are 25 cards in the set covering 25 different letter combinations and diagraphs. Go to Heidi's site to see sample cards in the set and to watch a short video of how they are used. The cards offer a visual for kids and they are able to respond to them physically and verbally- capturing all of the learning styles. What a great way to learn!! When your students get stumped on these letter combinations and diagraphs when they are reading and writing, they can just start through the motions and the sayings and figure the words out on their own. I love it!!
