I feel so fortunate to have had Singin' the Standards referred to me. I know that it is going to help my students remember some of those tougher standards. I introduced the Parts of Speech song on the first day of school. My third graders were very eager to sing along. On the back of my weekly newsletter, I printed the lyrics so that they can sing the song at home with their families. Ü Tomorrow, we'll sing the song many more times. Next week, we're going to learn and sing about the 4 kinds of sentences. I'm sure that song will be a hit too. I know this CD is going to be one of the best purchases I've made in my 19 years of teaching. Thanks, Tim!!!!! Ü Terri
Great way to add some life to third grade standards
Reviewer: Cecilia Z.
I have only had this CD for about two weeks and have already integrated three songs into my lessons. It is perfect for third graders. They especially love the quadrilateral song.
Outstanding tool to promote mastery learning!!!
Reviewer: Carole Allenbach
Outstanding, motivating tool to promote mastery learning! Use it in my 2nd grade classroom and with my own children at home and in the car!
My students are always singing along
Reviewer: Meghan McCutcheon
I somehow stumbled upon the website, CDBaby.com, and found this CD. I have used it with my third grade students, and we all love it! We especially love the songs related to math - my students are always singing along. Thanks for such a great CD!
Best teacher-students all passed 3rd grade test
Reviewer: Charlotte Kazmier
my granddaughter is a new teacher. teaches 3rd grade with mostly English learners. all passed the standard 3rd grade test. She cannot praise this CD too much. Taught the spelling part as the district instructed kids didn't get it until she played this CD. Hooray for Tim!!!
I love it for my fifth graders!
Reviewer: Danielle Froelich
I love it for my fifth graders, and they love it too! It completely ties in with the standards, the music is easy to remember, and it is a great filler activity between subjects!
This CD is a Must Buy!
Reviewer: Anna Tirello
After listening to this CD I feel that it is an essential tool for any classroom where interactive learning is a priority. This CD not only teaches students about the standards but it reinforces what they have learned in class through songs. I highly recommend this CD for all elementary grade levels.
This CD is great!
Reviewer: Bea Jackson
This CD is really catchy and fun for the students. I've only had it two weeks, but we've already used the Synonyms, Antonyms, and Homonyms and some of the times tables. I've shared it with colleagues and copied the lyrics for my students. What a great tool to help kids remember the standards in an enjoyable way!
Reviewer: Margery Koenig
I bought these for my 3 granddaughters who teach elementary school. One teaches special ed. They thought they were great, too!! Thanx.
My 3rd graders LOVE it and beg to sing the songs!!!
Reviewer: Heidi Goodman
My 3rd graders love Singin' the Standards! They really enjoy the various beats and songs. When we took a test recently I could actually hear some of them sing some of the songs under their breath to help them remember various concepts. Thanks for making teaching so much fun!
What a fun way to learn the skills required as listed in the standards
Reviewer: Geri Ehrlich
My students will learn much faster by listening to familiar songs written in this way than by listening to me. I just love the CD.

Reviewer: Riley Drexel
This CD gets you to just strat singing. My sister is in 3rd grade, and she loves the song Polly Wolly Perfix. I think this CD will be used in many classes because it helps you learn the standards..
This CD is Great!
Reviewer: Roddy St.Yves
By using this CD to accompany my classroom instruction, my students were able to retain much more information than students in my previous 20 years of teaching. I plan to make it a regular part of my daily instruction.
A great way to take standards and make it exciting for the kids to learn.
Reviewer: Tammy Drabek
I love how the CD is teaching the kids math, reading, and language arts but, making it fun. Getting them out of their seat; singing and dancing. I am definitely going to use this cd for my first grader. Thanks a million!
This cd is AWESOME!
Reviewer: Brianna Buchanan
I am 8 years old and I want to play my cd every single day. My favorite one is the Parallel song. But they are all GREAT! It helps me on my tests. I just have to sing the song in my head. Then I know the answers.
These song help your brain grow
Reviewer: jomark (3rd grade "English Language Learner" in Mr. Bedley's class)
these cd is the best cd that i ever hear
A great way to incorporate music in the classroom
Reviewer: Heather Goble
With all the pressures of state testing, teachers have to focus so much on academics that there seems to be no time for fun. This CD is a great way to teach students and have fun at the same time. Singing is an excellent memorization tool, and the students don't even realize they're exercising their brains. Using this CD is the perfect way to reinforce concepts, liven up a boring school day, and show students that learning can be enjoyable.
These Songs Make Your Brain Grow!
Reviewer: Tymerie Vincelli
I'm in Mr. Bedley's class and I sing these songs to make me learn more. I like sharing these songs with other children so they can learn more and it makes me happy to hear other kids in other classes sing Mr. Bedley's songs. My most favorite song is the writers song and it sounds right to me. These songs are really good for our brains.
WHAT AN AMAZING TOOL THAT WORKS IN TEACHING CHILDREN!
Reviewer: Sheila Cervantes
My child has had a lot of difficulty learning. She has had wonderful Teachers every year, but still she has struggled. We have listened to this CD and learned all these songs. And for the first time my daughter is getting good grades without struggling. Now she is having fun learning. She understands perpendicular, quadrilateral, antonyms, homonyms, equilateral, etc., as a result of listening regularly to this CD. She has great confidence now and enjoys teaching these songs to other children. Thank you for this amazing tool. P.S. I catch myself singing these songs when the kids are not around. I'm not quite sure I like that.:)
Fun music!- Great learning tool!
Reviewer: Sara Christiansen
My second grade class really enjoys the upbeat music. The songs have catchy tunes and really stick with you (whether you want them to or not. I find myself singing about prefixes and plural words. These songs have helped my class remember the concepts they are learning. Very well done!
Mr. Bedley's CD is fun, interactive, and loved by the students!
Reviewer: Amy Nasr
Mr. Bedley's "Singin' the Standards" CD is awesome! The lyrics are creative and easy to remember. My students ask everyday to listen to the songs! This CD teaches students key state standards in a fun, energetic way. The lyrics and the movements are is easy to learn and to remember. Thank you so much Mr. B!!!!
My students love the songs and they are helping them remember the standards.
Reviewer: M. Anderson
Awesome learning tool! My class loves the catchy tunes. I'm already noticing students remembering concepts after only using the CD for two weeks. This should be in every elementary classroom in the USA.
I Love the Songs
Reviewer: Jeannie Bartholomew
This CD is really great. I heard the songs for the first time in another teachers class. I thought it was a great way to learn. I am getting the CD for my son to use over the summer. Thank You Mr. B
