Common Core Alignment and HeidiSongs

Common Core Alignment and Heidisongs

 With so many states now using the Common Core State Standards, many educators are now looking for materials that are directly aligned to these learning objectives. Therefore, we spent some time and correlated each and every HeidiSongs product to the Common Core State Standards for both Kindergarten and First Grade! The products themselves have not changed; this is merely an informational correlation to the CCSS for those that are looking to justify or fulfill that requirement. We hope that you find this helpful in your search for materials that address each skill that you are teaching. We have a downloadable document of this listing that you can find here.

  1. Our school system has adopted Reading Street. Have you ever considered creating a sight word package that accommodates specific reading programs?

  2. Do you still have the Sing and Spell Journeys DVD’s? I LOVE them, but I lost my #3 DVD. I don’t see them on your website anymore.

  3. I have seen a colleague with your long vowel worksheets. I would like to see how much they would be to purchase. I can not find them. They are similar to your CVC pack but with bossy e. How much and where can I purchase them?

    • Hi Ricanne!! That sounds like phonics!! Here’s a link: https://www.heidisongs.com/collections/phonics My Sounds Fun Phonics Vol 1 workbook covers Bossy E! We have a few other phonics worksheets and games in that category on the website as well. The printed workbook is $15!
