Review & Giveaway: I Can Read Songs

I Can Read Songs for Reading

The I Can Read Songs for Reading DVD and Cd's are both suggested in the new book The Autism Sisterhood.  I was thrilled when I received the opportunity to review this wonderful product.  I can definitely see why Michele Brooke suggested this product in her book.

The I Can Read Songs for Reading DVD teaches children to read 13 high-frequency sight words through songs.  During each song your child will see:
  • a child trace the word on paper
  • the word used in sentences
  • an adult and child correctly form each letter in the word
  • learn through formation chants (very similar to the Letter Formation Chants on the ABCJLM website) how to correctly form the letters
  • children form the word with their bodies by sitting and lying on the floor
My children were very drawn to the video (Little Man forgot to sit down through half of it because he was so enamored).  Bubs recognized several of the words from sight words that he is learning at school.  Sweet Pea was drawn because she wants to have sight words just like her big brother. 

On their website - I Can Read Songs.org - you can download many free printables that coordinate with the DVD and Cd's. 
  • Big Words - poster size prints of the sight words
  • First Books (similar to the "My Color" books on the ABCJLM website)
  • Second Books (a little more difficulty)
  • Sing Along Charts and Take-Home Sheets
  • Music Scores for each of the sight-word songs
These songs can be used in a school or home setting very easily.  This coordinates very well with what Bubs is learning in Kindergarten and will be something that Sweet Pea will enjoy watching and apply as we read together.  A great introduction to reading!  Plus, you have the opportunity to use these songs in DVD or CD form!

Giveaway:
I have a CD to giveaway!!!  The first person to order both the 3 & 4 Year Curriculum and include the title of this CD on their order or address confirmation will be given the CD!  How cool is that?
