HeidiSongs Music for Classroom Management CD Giveaway

I am SUPER excited about Heidi's new Heidi's new Music for Classroom Management CD. I recently received it in the mail and have been listening to it getting ready to use it with my new kiddos!! This year I want to use a lot of quick, fun, free incentives with my students including singing fun songs and this CD fits perfectly with that goal. A few of my favorite songs are Is It a Question of a Story? Criss, Cross, Applesauce, Snap That Cap, and The Smarty Pants Dance. You can't go wrong with one of Heidi's CD's. The kids always love singing the songs and I love the movement component that Heidi always includes. Learn more about Heidi's Music for Classroom Management CD and download the lyrics and motions for free  here.

If you are not already familiar with Heidi's CD's then you have to check out all 5 of her sight word CD's. They are a MUST for every pre-k, kindergarten, and first grade classroom!! Learn more about Heidi's sight word CD's  here.
 

I am very excited to announce that Heidi has graciously agreed to giveaway a copy of her Heidi's new Classroom Management CD  to one lucky follower. All you have to do to enter is 1) Follow Chalk Talk and 2) leave a comment below with your email address and a way you could use the CD in your classroom. 

The giveaway ends Monday August 20th at midnight. Good luck everyone and happy singing and learning!!

I am so excited! This CD wouold be great in our room. Our K babies absolutely could use all the extra help they could get :) We would use the CD daily to help with the anxiety of school and all the new discoveries we are making at the beginning of the year!

Thanks for hosting this giveaway, April. Not only do I follow Chalk Talk, but its on my toolbar---I start 90% of my blog stalking on your page! :)

As far as using Heidi's CD---I already own her ABC DVD, and love it! I would gladly add Heidi's new CD to our repertoire--kiddos definitely respond better to music than to verbal 'insistance'. It keeps the environment fun and light. I'm looking forward to hearing it! :)

Thanks again, April!

I follow your blog. Knowing how my students already respond to Heidi's Songs music, I know that her behavior management will be right up there with the rest of the stuff. Sometimes just singing a song to help them remember how to sit or listen, etc. works so much better than verbally telling them.

I love Heidi. The question/story song would be perfect for introducing share time responses. Thank you! (I already follow you.)

Molly Turner said...

Follow your sight! Love your ideas and pass some on to other teachers in my school. I use music a lot in my classroom. I think that music helps students learn and remember things - it's always easier and more fun when there is a catchy tune. I would use the classroom management CD for teaching procedures and routines. This would be a fun and interesting way to engage the students instead of just rambling to them. I love the lyrics to Potty, Potty, Flush, Flush!

I follow your blog. Thanks for the great ideas! I love Heidi's CD's and DVD's. It would be great to have her new CD to use during transistion times. Can't wait to see how the "Is it a story or a question" song works with my kids. That's such a hard thing to teach!

We make up songs inspired by Heidi for sight words that I don't have of her CD's.

Heidi said...

I follow your blog. I love using music in the classroom and have only heard great things about Heidi's CDs. The importance of having a structured behavior management system and a set of procedures that become routine in the classroom are key to a great school year. Being able to add music to teaching them would be an added benefit :)
