Animated and Fun!

These videos are ANIMATED and SO MUCH FUN!!! If you have never tried to teach your students some nursery rhymes, then you MUST try this!  Once I tried them, I (Heidi) was really surprised at how much my students really loved these little traditional rhymes and poems.  In fact, my TK kids loved singing them so much that they would break out in song while walking in line!  I loved it, and it really made me happy to see them enjoying the nursery rhymes so much!

Every Nursery Rhyme Is a Song with Movements

Every nursery rhyme has been set to music to make it super easy to learn and has simple motions for little ones to follow.  If you’ve used HeidiSongs videos for a while, you’ll know just what I mean:  with music, movement, and on-screen visuals, children can learn FAST!  Only one nursery rhyme was recorded as a rap, and that is “A Wise Old Owl.”  It has a great beat, and I really like how it turned out!

28 Nursery Rhymes with Multicultural Actors, Plus the ABC Song

Here are some details about this collection. 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!”  (Try it, and you’ll see what I mean!)  The videos have our new, young, multicultural actors in them, both male and female so that most (if not all) children are represented.

All Nursery Rhymes Use Traditional Words

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.  We turned all of the rest of the nursery rhymes into songs!

Heggerty Nursery Rhymes Kindergarten List
This is a photo of the list of nursery rhymes included in the Heggerty Kindergarten level book.  We could not record “It’s Raining, It’s Pouring” because it turns out that it is a copyrighted song.  Who knew??? 🤪

Heggerty Nursery Rhyme Posters

If you would like a collection of posters for the Heggerty nursery rhymes, Heidi made some and posted them on TpT!  They have the lyrics and a scene from the videos on the front, plus the motions for each one written out with little illustrations to print on the back (if you choose to do so.)  They are cute and would make a great addition to a focus wall if you change them out weekly.
