PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking for ways to engage your kiddos while learning about reading strategies?! This zip file contains eight original songs to sing your heart's content! It contains a twenty-page pdf file with two versions of each song (colored as well as black and white). It also contains eight MP3 files to upload to iTunes or another media player... and then boogie to the beat! :)

If you want to check out a sample, I posted one of the songs for free on my blog: http://oneextradegree.blogspot.com/2012/12/i-can-make-inference-dance-mix-free-mp3.html

Happy Teaching!

I have ELL students in my classroom and I love having songs for them to sing. They have more success in remembering concepts if there is a song to sing. Thank you so much for this!

I have tried downloading this file a couple of times. Once it is downloaded, I am unable to open the files. My system does not support this. Do you have any recommendations?
On  February 1, 2014One Extra Degree answered:
Do you have a Mac or a PC? If you have a Mac you should be able to import them into iTunes. If you want to email me, feel free. My email is amanda.nickerson84@gmail.com. I have a pretty full plate this weekend since I'm finalizing four presentations for Monday, BUT I'd be happy to ask some other sellers/techies if they have any suggestions too (if I can't help you myself). I can try sending the file through email too.

I'm very sorry you feel that way. I've gotten lots of great feedback about them, and my own students LOVE them. I have used them with four different classes, and they always grasp the concepts and enjoy the songs too. I know I'm not a professional singer or musician. :) So, if that's what you were hoping for, I'm sure that would be disappointing.

PLEASE don't hate me!! I don't mean to be a pain, page Page 12. Title is I can make Connections when I read. First line is I can make predictions when I read. I think something isn't right.

On  September 16, 2013,  Gina N. asked:
Amanda,
I hate to even ask this, but will you please look at the prediction song poster? Is it supposed to say I can make connections when I read (as the heading) Or I can make Predictions. I just went to Staples to print these, and I want to make sure it is correct before I do so. Honestly, I don't mean to be a pain after you redid these! Gina

On  September 20, 2013One Extra Degree answered:
Hi! No, I purposefully made the name of the song into a condensed version of the chorus. :) If you REALLY want me to try to fit it all up there, I can send you one page with the changes as a pdf file. I would have to shrink the font quite a bit though, and it doesn't look as nice that way. That's why I went with the condensed heading.

You're welcome, Gina. I definitely didn't think you were "bugging" me. I am so glad that your students enjoyed the songs, and I am glad that you do too.

Hey, Gina! I am so sorry it has taken so long to fix that page. I have had one heck of a year. It's been a total whirlwind... even this summer. I had to start the file all over again from scratch, so there are a few other changes to the design. I hope your students enjoy the songs this year! :) If you send me an email, I will send you a file of your choice for being so understanding and patient. amanda.nickerson84@gmail.com

Hi Amanda,
I was wondering since it was summer if you would have time to make the fixes so I can print these and laminate them for my firstites for next year. I would like to start them off singing as soon as we begin the school year. I am sure it is a lot of work, I would be so grateful!!! Gina

On  June 20, 2013One Extra Degree answered:
Gina, I am so sorry! My original file somehow got deleted when my computer crashed, so all I have is the pdf. I am so sorry it was an inconvenience since one of the pages had the wrong strategy listed at the top. I will work on getting that corrected this summer...
On  May 14, 2013Erika Scott (TpT Seller) asked:
How do you save these songs to your computer? They are in MP3 format and it will not save. I have to go to TPT each time I want to use it and find where I bought it to listen.

On  May 15, 2013One Extra Degree answered:
Hi! Once you unzip the file, you just save the file folder to your desktop or another folder on your computer. The mp3s can be housed there. When you want to play them, just double-click them. :)

Hey, Gina! I just went in to make the change, and for whatever reason, I can't find my Powerpoint file. That means that, most likely, I will have to totally recreate it from SCRATCH which is a BIG BUMMER. I will try to fix it this weekend when I have a little more free time. So sorry for the mistake!

Hi Amanda! I downloaded the songs in early Feb., but I believe there is still an error on the prediction song. The tune has been corrected (London Bridge) but my color copy still stays "I Make Connections" instead of "I Make Predictions." My kiddos are having so much fun singing "I Wonder When We Read" and are looking forward to learning other strategy songs. Your creativity is so refreshing!

Hi! I am not really sure how that would work since I don't have an iPhone. I'm a Droid user! :) However, I would think that you'd be able to transfer them through iTunes if you have a Mac. You may want to check with another iPhone user to see how to download MP3 files to your device. I am sure it is possible... I am just not sure since I don't have that phone. Sorry! :)

Hi There! I absolutely adore your songs and can't wait to start using them in my classroom...tomorrow! I think there is a mistake in the I Make Predictions song lyrics on the color page. It says "I make Connections" and also says it's to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle instead of London Bridge. Just thought you'd like to know :)

Songs are amazing for learning and I hope to see more from you - I'm not that creative so I'm glad you are!!
