Shape of the Week Focus Wall Chart!

I am SUPER EXCITED to tell you about our  Shape of the Week Focus Wall chart , joining our HeidiSongs Focus Wall for active learners!

It also matches up exactly with our very popular Alphabet Action song , which is in our Letters and Sounds collection , available on our Video Streaming Site ! Below is a video of my students doing the song with me in 2010!!! Gosh, that feels like a lifetime ago!  LOL! Those kids must be 15 or 16 years old now! Of course, the current ani
