Tim Bedley, veteran elementary school teacher, has taken common tunes and changed the lyrics to help kids remember what they've been taught in school. Kid-tested and way-too-fun, this CD will brighten your classroom or home, and your kids will learn elementary school academic standards in the process.

In September of 2005, Tim sat down with his computer and started changing the lyrics for old songs. He thought, "My students just have the hardest time remembering some really important concepts. I have to keep reteaching and reteaching. If only I could get them to sing the information, they would NEVER forget!" Tim gradually began teaching his class of 3rd graders each of these 21 songs...and it WORKED! No longer did students inquire, "What's a trapezoid?" Then, FLYS turned into FLIES. Tim would ask his students, "What does 're' mean?" and instantly they would respond, "AGAIN!" The power of music took over Tim's classroom!
As Open House approached, Tim wanted his students to perform the songs for their parents. But there was only one problem. Mr. Bedley doesn't play any musical instruments. His first thought was to invite a pianist in to accompany his students' singing. But who would be willing to come to school and practice and perform? AH-HA!! Tim figured he could talk a friend into playing the songs into a tape recorder. Well, he couldn't stop at that and ended up making a full blown recording with complete instrumentation and vocals.
In April of 2006, Mr. Bedley passed out initial copies of his recording to all of his colleagues at Wildomar Elementary School. Soon after, more and more teachers wanted copies of his CD, so Tim decided to get the CD professionally duplicated and packaged and put it on CD Baby. Since then, Tim and his singing students have appeared in newspaper articles, TV News features, and The Costco Connection. Now, teachers and parents all over the nation are singing these very simple yet incredibly effective songs with their kids. Education will never be the same!

Singin' the Standards is a CD of songs for elementary school students. Each song acts as a mnemonic device allowing children to instantly recall information learned in school. 21 songs address topics such as angle names, good writer habits, skip counting, prefix meanings, measurement and conversion, and much more.

Singin' the Standards is a CD recording that is STANDARDS BASED. Each and every song addresses different basic standards which apply to several grade levels (primarily grades 2 through 5.)

Please visit www.singinthestandards.com to see how these songs align to state academic standards.

Singin’ the Standards contains very simple songs written to familiar, catchy tunes. Students master these songs after only a few listens. Kids will sing them over and over again in their heads and aloud.

Singin’ the Standards is not like other children’s CDs. These songs don’t have “fluff” lyrics. Each song cuts straight to the objective so kids can mentally access information as they complete assignments. Students don’t need to wade through line after line of needless song lyrics.

Singin’ the Standards is classroom tested. In fact, these songs have been recorded professionally because of the incredible effect the music was having on student performance and attitude in Tim's classroom. The magic was too powerful to keep a secret. Students love these songs and use them to improve academic performance. This CD makes your classroom come alive!

Singin' the Standards is also available as a fundraiser, a perfect fund raising choice. Just think...your organization makes money while your students learn academic standards. Now all your students can listen to the CD at home while they go to sleep at night. That's some GOOD brainwashing!

I bought these for my 3 grandaughters who teach elementary school. One teaches special ed. They thought they were great, too!!Thanx.

Kathi Erspamer

Kids love it!
I used this CD for a lesson plan necessary for Teacher Education. When I had to prepare the lesson for an actual second grade class, they loved it! What a great way to learn all of the so-called "rules" that are so hard for kids to remember. Every classroom should have one.

Danielle Froelich

I love it for my fifth graders!
I love it for my fifth graders, and they love it too! It completly ties in with the standards, the music is easy to remember, and it is a great filler activity between subjects!

Jennifer Early

The CD is wonderful! It works for a variety of grade levels. You have inspired me to compile my partner and I to compile our own material. Thanks for sharing!!!

Jeannie Bartholomew

I Love the Songs
This CD is realy 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

Geri Ehrlich

What a fun way to learn the skills required as listed in the standards. My students will learn much faster by listening to familiar songs written in this way than by listening to me.

Roddy St.Yves

This CD is Great!
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.

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!

Heidi Goodman

My 3rd graders LOVE it and beg to sing the songs!!!
My 3rd graders love Singin the Standards! They really enojoy 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!

Heather Goble

A great way to incorporate music in the classroom
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.
