About

 Here is Roxy teaching how to grow a flower in the Is Video shown above:

There are 220 High Frequency Sight Words taught in elementary grades that are the most frequently used words in reading and they don’t follow the traditional spelling rules. All children must learn these Sight Words in order to become effective readers.

Here are some Sample Sight Word Songs that I have already written and recorded.

With your help, we could turn these songs into amazing animated videos for kids!

Are Song:

It Song:

 Said Song:

  • A large population of students are unable to read.
  • The current educational system is broken.
  • Testing has consumed our classrooms.
  • Teachers and students are burned out.
  • High quality, animated, and engaging educational music videos that are guaranteed to teach kids how to read and put FUN back into the classroom!

Risks and challenges

Step 1: Writing the Sight Word Songs - My goal is to write and record 1 Sight Word Song per week until they are all finished. This is a huge undertaking and could get overwhelming at times. I don't want to get burned out, so I may have some weeks where I may not finish a song. My goal is to finish writing and recording all 220 songs by Winter 2015 and get the rewards out shortly after that.

Step 2: Creating the Sight Word Videos - The video animation team that will be working on the Sight Word Videos project will be creating 1 video per week. At this rate, we are looking at about 2 years to complete all 220 videos. If the video animation crew has any delays, then it may prolong the production. However, we maybe be able to complete 2 videos per week if I can write and record the songs fast enough.

Step 3: Rewards - We will need to collect email addresses from all of our backers to email the downloads, which could take several days/weeks depending on the number of backers.
