Our New Nursery Rhymes DVD is HERE!!!!


GREAT NEWS!!  I’m SO excited to tell you that our Nursery Rhymes DVD is FINALLY here! It is ANIMATED and it is SO MUCH FUN!!! If you love to teach with nursery rhymes, then you MUST try this!  Every nursery rhyme has been set to music to make it super easy to learn, and has simple motions for little ones to follow.



Do I have to say again that I SO WISH I was teaching Kinder, TK, or Pre-K this year so that I could enjoy this with the kiddos myself, ? but I guess I’ll have to wait because right now I am needed in second grade.  I did try out the songs (on CD) in my friend Mrs. Rodriguez’ Kindergarten class when I was on my leave of absence in 2014.  It was LOTS of fun- they loved it!  So, if you have permission to film your kiddos and do purchase this Nursery Rhyme DVD, I would just LOVE it if you would send me a clip of your class singing and dancing to it!  (Pretty please!!!!)



Here are some details about this DVD.  It has 28 nursery rhyme songs on it, plus one extra “bonus song” at the end, which is the traditional ABC Song, done “Heidi Style!”  The DVD has our new, young actors in it, both male and female.  And as I mentioned before, it is fully animated to help hold the children’s attention.  All of the Nursery Rhymes’ traditional words are intact; none of them have been changed.  Also, if any of the nursery rhymes had a traditional song, that has also been used.  However, if any of them were just a chant or poem before, those have been turned into songs.  None of them have been recorded as “raps.”



Here is a list of all of the nursery rhymes that are included in our new DVD.  

1. Baa Baa Black Sheep

3. Georgie Porgie

      • Seriously, I have been anticipating this DVD for a long time. I just ordered it. And then cried. This is most likely the last of your DVDs I will be ordering for my students. I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed using your DVDs over the last few years. I have shared them with many teachers in our district and many of them use them daily, too. Thank you so much for putting so much thought and effort into helping students and teachers learn while having fun (and a good cardio-workout!)

        (If anyone is looking at this as their FIRST Heidi DVD and wondering if you should order it…don’t hesitate. Do it now! The only downside to ordering it is…it won’t be your last!

        • Oh, Buena! That makes me SAD! Oh, I miss you already! Please stay around on social media and my blog so we can still chat! I still think that the very best thing about last year’s I Teach K conference in Las Vegas was that I FINALLY got to meet you in person!!!
          Greg and I always say that next time we are in NM, we are going to come by and visit you! I do want to do that sometime, for sure! You’re my favorite customer!
          Love and hugs,

  1. I will be buying this one for my ESL kindergarten students in Thailand for summer school. We have had such great results with your DVD’s for letters, sounds, reading and spelling.
    Money well spent. I think they will really enjoy this DVD. Keep up the awesome work!
