220 Sight Word Music Videos that will give teachers and parents a fun and effective way to help children become better readers!
This KickStarter Project will end on June 2nd. In order to complete the project, we will need to raise a total of $220,000. Every little bit helps and you can even receive awesome Rewards for backing this project!
Here are Some of the REWARDS

So, I have this BIG IDEA to create Animated Music Videos for ALL 220 Sight Words. Each of the 220 Sight Word Videos will be unique with different music and animation, but will follow the same sequence described below:
Part 1: Showing and Repeating the Word.
Part 2: Spelling the Word.
Part 3: Showing and Repeating the Word.
Part 4: Using the Word in Sentences.
Part 5: Showing and Repeating the Word.
Part 6: Spelling the Word.
Part 7: Showing and Repeating the Word.
We will also be introducing brand new Have Fun Teaching characters, called Funzies! Each character will have unique strengths, such as Alphabet, Character, Math, Fitness, Reading, Science, Shapes, etc.
YOU! You are the solution! If this project is fully funded, we will be able to combine our fun and educational Sight Word Songs with high quality Music Videos for all 220 Sight Words! Teachers, parents, and children all over the world will cheer, and good times will be had in classrooms and homes all over. When this project is complete, all of the Sight Word Songs and Videos will be offered for FREE, via YouTube and Streaming, for everyone to benefit.
I am committed to finishing this project so that these resources may become available to teachers, parents, and kids all over the world!
With your help, we can bring an element of fun back into the classroom, build up positive and confident young readers, motivate and inspire teachers and parents, and help eliminate illiteracy!
5 REASONS TO HELP BACK THIS PROJECT
1. We can't do it without you! With your help, we can bring FUN back into TEACHING and LEARNING! With so many schools focusing on standards, testing, bookwork, and worksheets, teachers and parents are getting BURNED OUT and FRUSTRATED and the children are the ones who are suffering! This project, and these educational videos, can help refresh teachers and parents, help educate students, and bring back an element of FUN and EXCITEMENT back into the classroom! These educational Sight Word Songs and Videos will engage young children, make learning fun, and help them to become amazing readers and future leaders!
2. Amazing Rewards! By backing this project, you will receive some of our awesome rewards: Your name on the HaveFunTeaching.com Website, All 220 Sight Word Song Downloads, All 220 Sight Word Video Downloads, and even other Have Fun Teaching Songs and Videos, including Alphabet, Character, Counting, Fitness, Science, Shapes, and Songs for Kids!
3. Songs are a GREAT way to remember and recall information. This is very important, especially when trying to learn Sight Words. Other people have tried to create Sight Word Songs by combining several words into one song, however, we believe that by focusing on one word per song, children will be able to master each word individually and use the word in context. Sight Words are words that don’t follow the traditional spelling rules. Sight Words need to be memorized. Children listening to these songs and watching these videos will have an increased chance of remembering the words, which will benefit them as they start to read.
4. These songs and videos will not only be heard and seen in the United States, but all across the world. Have Fun Teaching reaches out and provides free resources to millions of people in the United States, UK, Canada, India, Philippines, Australia, United Arab Emirates, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Egypt, Pakistan, Turkey, China, Mexico and more!
5. All of the songs and videos created from this project will be available for FREE on the HaveFunTeaching.com website via YouTube and Streaming. In addition to offering the songs and videos for FREE on our website, will also be selling the Sight Word Songs and Videos, including CDs, DVDs, Downloads, and USBs, which will help continue to fund the Have Fun Teaching company and all of our amazing and passionate employees. The Sight Word Videos will help sustain Have Fun Teaching as a leading educational resource for teachers and parents so that we can continue to help equip teachers and parents and motivate kids all around the world.
