I use Heidi Song's to supplement my phonics program.  It is a system of teaching phonics through music and movement.  I bought the flashcards to go with the dvd.  The flashcards give the children a visual and kinesthetic cue to help them remember the sounds.  For second grade, I use her dvd called Sound Fun Phonics.  When I taught kindergarten, I used her sight word videos.  My students were able to read and spell the various sight words. 

Her songs are great and the students love singing them!

Ai/Ay-Hooray, Ar-Pirate, Au/Aw-Caw, Ch-Choo Choo, Ea/Ee-Whee, Er/Ir/Ur-Tiger, Ew-Monster, Igh-Sailor, Ing-King, Ink-Pink Ink, Oa-Tummy Ache, Oi/Oy-Piggy, Oo-Monkey, Or-Dinosaur, Ou/Ow-Howl, Sh-Quiet Girl, Th-Blowing Raspberries, Unk-Skunk, plus these basic phonics rules: Bossy E, Magic Y, Vowel Walk
