Heidisongs Giveaway & a FREEBIE!

Raise your hand if you are a fan of Heidi Songs materials. Now imagine me waving my arms obnoxiously.

Sidenote: I have one of those student this year. He is first in line and jumps up almost hitting my chin to make sure I see him standing like he should. {Insert head shaking here. } I have tried to explain that by jumping he is no longer standing at attention but he just smiles, glad I finally made eye contact with him.

This leads in perfectly to my post today which is about Heidi's Classroom Management CD. I have blogged before about loving her Sight Word DVDs so I thought maybe this talented teacher could also help me with behavior expectations.
I have been playing her Music for Classroom Management CD while we do our handwriting practice. The songs are catchy and directly correlate to what my kiddos need to be reminded of:

Music titles include:
1: Backpack Boogie
2: Follow the Rules
3: When the Bell Rings, Freeze!
4: The Tattling Song
5: No Interrupting
6: Outside Voices, Inside Voices
7: Please and Thank You
8: Is it a Question or a Story?
9: Cover Your Mouth
10: Blow Your Nose
11: The Potty Dance
12: Potty, Potty, Flush, Flush
13: Right Hand, Left Hand
14: Red, White, and Blue
15: The Days of the Week
16: Months of the Year
17: Criss Cross, Applesauce
18: The Tracing Song
19: The Cutting Song
20: The Glue Song
21: Snap That Cap
22: Just Try Your Best
23: The Smarty Pants Dance
24: Line Up
25: I Love My Lunchbox
26: Bonus Track: We Don’t Fight!

Is it a Question or a Story has been a lifesaver! Before I got the CD I had one boy who had a real problem with this. I would interrupt his story and he would say, "Yea, but..." and keep going. Seriously, one day I stopped him 3 times before I finally let him just get it out!

Would you like to hear a sample? These clips are from the DVD although I just got the CD.

If you'd like more information about these songs or to check out her other AMAZING PRODUCTS just click HERE. She is a teacher so you know that her products are kid tested and approved! I am amazed by her creativity! She also provides a free download of the lyrics.

But wait, ( do I sound like an infomercial at 3 AM?) followers of my blog can also enter to win your very own copy of her Music for Classroom Management CD! Use the handy Rafflecopter widget below to enter.

I'd also like to announce that Evelyn ( won my last giveaway for the Lakeshore Roll & Build Geometry Game. Congrats!

And if you stayed with me this long, you deserve a FREEBIE! I made a new Magic e poster for my phonics wall. It matches my Decoding Strategies Quick-Reference Guide if you are using it (pictured below)

 but even if you aren't maybe you teach CVCe words with the same strategy and could use this FREE download. I cut around the frame, mounted on colored scrapbook paper, and laminated for durability.
Hope everyone has a terrific week! My district has mandated 135 minutes weekly in the computer lab on intervention programs so I am having a very difficult time finding enough time to actually TEACH!
