This is what we’ve been waiting for – simple age appropriate counting songs suitable for mainstream and SEN pupils.
Yes! Counting Songs 1 (for Early Years) and Counting Songs 2 (for KS2) has arrived from Inclusive, well worth the wait and I can’t speak highly enough of it.
The Early Years version has seven songs for counting up and three for counting down.
It makes a refreshing change to have the traditional songs re-written and counting up from one to five.
The Key Stage 2 version has some highly original songs with the same teacher options as the Early Years version.
There are extensive teacher options with activities based on the songs and printable lyrics are also available.
The teacher resources include picture labels for small and large switches as well as flash cards and posters.
For those who are familiar with the SwitchIts the layout of the software is the same so staff and pupils can easily navigate round the interface.
What can I say about the picture and sound quality? It’s absolutely fantastic! Wonderful graphics which have that amusing touch Inclusive are so good at and the singing is superb with some of the songs on both versions having a Jazz feel to them – wow!
All our pupils find these songs highly motivating and amusing and in a short space of time the software has been used extensively.
Thank you Inclusive for yet another winner!!
