YESnack.com good for teaching & Contest!

UPDATE~ Winner is Ninacu !! Congratulations! You need to contact me before 3/10 by 5:00 PM CST to claim your prize, or I will pick a new winner. Your profile doesn't leave a way for me to contact you. Thanks ~

Nathaniel is big on Math and learning! Right now is he is learning and memorizing his math multiplication facts. I have come across this CD from YESnack to help him memorize and have fun with it. I think the music is quite original, and Nathaniel thinks it is funky. I think it is great that the creator thought of something for kids to cling to for learning. Here is a little history on William (the creator):

How did you get started writing children's music? While teaching English in Taiwan, a friend asked me to write original poems or chants for class. Later on I was then asked to set them to music. I got such a wonderful response, it just went on from there. How do you decide which songs to put on the Cd's?When developing the songs, I'd play them in class. If the students turned into Smart Cookies then that would define the song as a perfect ingredient for "Yummy English Snack"

Through his music Cd's he covers all the multiplication facts from 1-12. He has a two CD set that covers 43 different songs. A few original stories were based and inspired from Cool Songs Collection. Would you like to win a set for yourself or another child you know who could use this?

RULES~

Contest open to non-bloggers and bloggers of the United States. Please leave a comment. Contest will end March 13 at 7:00 PM.

People really do learn so much quicker with song, and it seems that it is retained forever that way, too.
I would love a set for my kids, we have a lot of work to do on multiplication and all sorts of things, lol.
