{Giveaway} Calming Young Minds CD

Calming Young Minds CD giveaway

.

 

Product Details: A unique compilation of relaxation, meditation, guided imagery, blissful music, creativity, and yoga for children.

Whether you are a parent, teacher, day care provider, child life specialist, yoga instructor, or psychotherapist, we have made it is easy to use these CDs. Listeners are guided step by step through each section, although it is recommended that you listen to these CDs in entirety before using with the children so you can familiarize yourself with the content, directives and the exercises. Some tracks are active, some are relaxing, some yoga exercises conclude with an artistic directive. The background music and vocals compliment the yoga sets, but you might have some additional background music available while the children are being creative. It is important that you have art supplies available. Markers and large paper (18 X 24) are sufficient but feel free to add oil pastels, scented markers or crayons. You might also have paper towels handy for clean up. Make sure there is sufficient space for the children to move around…… you might even have cushions or pillows for the children to sit on. And lastly, enjoy the playful nature of the CDs. Although it is geared for children and teens, adults may enjoy it just as much! ENJOY!

Calming Minds CD tracks

 

Here’s what I love about the CD set:

  • relaxing background sounds & music.
  • lovely narration of kids yoga adventures. The narration is pretty detailed so these would be best used with kids elementary school age and up.
  • great combination of kids yoga, relaxation, imagination, guided imagery, creativity & art.
  • includes great positive messages of courage & mindfulness.

{Giveaway} Super Simple Songs: Animals DVD

sss DVD Giveaway on OMazing Kids

.

Zoo animal, jungle animals, farm animals, and pets! We love singing about animals, the sounds they make, and the things they can (and can’t) do. The Super Simple Songs – Animals DVD features 12 animal songs, including YouTube favorites, “Hickory, Dickory…Crash!” “Walking In The Jungle,” and “The Animals On The Farm.” Perfect for watching at home, in the classroom, or on the go. Along the way, kids will learn about other topics such as counting, parts of the body, basic time telling, animal sounds, and action verbs. It’s animals, made super fun and super simple! Recommended for children ages 3 and up.

Product Details:

  • Format: NTSC
  • Label: Super Simple Learning
  • Run Time: 31 minutes
  • Language: English

.

Here’s what I love about the DVD:

  • nice slow pace (the only exception is when the Animals on the Farm song gets faster & faster at the end).
  • repetitive & predictable lines in the songs.
  • nice heavy beat.
  • most encourage movement.
  • pleasant vocals & melodies (parents, teachers & therapists will appreciate tunes that won’t drive you crazy to hear again & again).
  • high quality graphics.
  • has the potential to be incorporated in so many different ways! Parents, early childhood educators, special educators, ELL teachers, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, kids yoga teachers, PE teachers & more could all find ways to incorporate this DVD.
  • Here are a few ideas I have from the perspective of aSLP & kids yoga teacher:
    • Good Morning Mr. Rooster could be used to start the child’s day or start a class or therapy session. Many of the patients I see thrive on having routines and respond well to songs to help with transitions.
    • Let’s Go to the Zoo, Walking in the Jungle, Yes I Can! & Wag Your Tail all depict specific movements. Some even have a split screen with an animal on one side and the character on the other both doing the same movement. This could easily be incorporated into goals for gross motor imitation.
    • Hickory Dickory – Crash! has 6 animals starting with a tiny mouse. Each animal is bigger than the next. Love the stretched out ending to allow kids time to predict what might happen.
    • My Teddy Bear incorporates counting & body parts. I love how the video zooms in on each body part.
    • I have a Pet would be fun to incorporate into goals for imitation of animal sounds & vocabulary.
    • Yes, I Can! would be fun to target answering yes/no questions either verbally or via AAC.
    • Mary Had a Kangaroo would be fun to target adjectives.
    • The Animals on the Farm would be another one to target animal sounds. This song does speed up so the last portion may not be appropriate for kids who are easily over stimulated.
    • What Do You Hear? would be a fun way to target listening & talking about “I hear a ______” via PECS, AAC or verbally.
    • Wag Your Tail would be fun to target “fast / slow”.
    • After A While Crocodile is a nice soothing song that would work well to end a class or therapy session. Again using a song to ease that transition.

.

Help fund AAC for kids in need…

Help fund AAC for kids in need…

image

.

‬A very dedicated SLP is raising funds to provide AAC for students in need. I invite everyone to take a look and to help if you are able. Here are more details:

.

“Friends and Family- Please donate $5, $10 or $20 to my GoFundMe Campaign to raise money for iPads and apps for my students. The apps are usually $200 each but will be half price on Thursday for Autism Awareness Day. Apple will give me a half price discount if I raise enough money to buy 20 applications. My goal is to raise $4000 by next Thursday April 2nd, so I can buy 20 apps and 6 iPads. Give the gift of communication to a student for the price of a box of Girl Scout cookies. I’ll give a shout out to everyone who donates, and we’ll share pictures of the kids who are helped (with parent permission). Who will be first? Who would stand up for you if you had no voice?”

Even if your child uses other forms of AAC, the GoTalk Now app has lots of features that are helpful for adapted literacy & learning.

Entry details on this post on the OMazing Kids Facebook Page:

https://www.facebook.com/OMazingKidsYoga/photos/a.562317480485928.1073741841.174264525957894/911987722185567/?type=1&theater

 .

Second Giveaway:

.

{ ELSB – Early Literacy Skills Builder App Giveaway ~ worth $79.99} 10 winners will each get a code for this fabulous adapted literacy iOS iPad app specifically designed for kids with special needs by Attainment!

The ELSB app is a multi-year preliteracy curriculum for students who have not acquired print and phonemic awareness. The software brings to life Levels 1—7; daily lessons and level assessments. The program narrator and main character Moe the frog, take students through lessons that are built to shape mastery of 14 objectives following an easy-to-hard sequence. Objectives include sight word vocabulary with flashcards, syllable segmentation with a tapping game, and print awareness with pointing to text as it is read. Collaborate with each student to create their own unique avatar. Five years of solid research have been completed through the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, proving ELSB to be a highly effective literacy program and more effective than a sight-word only program. ELSB is based upon the principles of systematic and direct instruction. It incorporates scripted lessons, least-prompt strategies, teachable objectives, built-in lesson repetition, and ongoing assessments. The seven ELSB levels contain five structured lessons each. All students begin at Level 1. Teach scripted lessons daily in two 30-minute sessions. On the completion of each level, formal assessments are given. ELSB includes everything you need to implement a multi-year literacy curriculum.

  • unique folksy/jazzy/blues feel
  • I love using very unique Kindie music in my work as a speech-language pathologist & kids yoga teacher. I have had many patients respond to the unique qualities of this type of music when they haven’t to any other. I’m thrilled to have this album added to my ever growing collection of Kindie faves. In case you are new to the term “Kindie”, it’s kids music made by independent artists. It’s totally unlike the mass marketed stuff you find in the kids CD section at large retailers :)
