    Recommending Heidisongs Singable Songs for Letters and Sounds

    Yes, that is Dr. Jean's Who Let the Letters Out. I have used her songs, they are fantastic, but it is not a "program"- any motions you see were added by the teacher. If you are looking for a great music and movement program to teach letter ID and sounds I HIGHLY recommend Heidisongs new Singable Songs for Letters & Sounds. I am currently attending the NAEYC conference and I got to see Heidi's new Letters and Sounds presentation yesterday, it was absolutely AMAZING! She has taken each letter and made a song and dance to go with each one. But she took it a step further and made a DVD for the whole thing that shows you exactly how to do the dance for each letter and it also has animation of the letters- it just blew me away! She showed video of her class doing the motions and singing each letter song, it was really powerful. I will definitely be recommending her DVD and CD to my teachers when I return from the conference. I don't work for Heidi, I am just a teacher who has used her music before (sight word songs and number songs) in my classroom and seen incredible results. Please free to PM me with questions regarding Heidi's music.

    I believe the hand movements are zoophonics??

    It is Dr. Jean. I use this almost everyday. We use American Sign Language alphabet with some actions for our hand motions, but I might start making them a bit "bigger". It looked fun.

    There are hand motions to zoophonics-but those aren't the ones I have. The teacher said she was using Alphafriends. That is what our district uses as well (not me though-as I am independent). It has it's own moves.

    I really liked that Power of Teaching stuff though. Those kids were "on".

    I have read that when you use both hands and bilateral movements the muscle memory is more intense and therefore easier for the children to access.
