Tim Bedley, veteran elementary school teacher, has taken common tunes and changed the lyrics to help kids remember what they've been taught in school. Kid-tested and way-too-fun, this CD will brighten your classroom or home, and your kids will learn elementary school academic standards in the process.
In September of 2005, Tim sat down with his computer and started changing the lyrics for old songs. He thought, "My students just have the hardest time remembering some really important concepts. I have to keep reteaching and reteaching. If only I could get them to sing the information, they would NEVER forget!" Tim gradually began teaching his class of 3rd graders each of these 21 songs...and it WORKED! No longer did students inquire, "What's a trapezoid?" Then, FLYS turned into FLIES. Tim would ask his students, "What does 're' mean?" and instantly they would respond, "AGAIN!" The power of music took over Tim's classroom!
As Open House approached, Tim wanted his students to perform the songs for their parents. But there was only one problem. Mr. Bedley doesn't play any musical instruments. His first thought was to invite a pianist in to accompany his students' singing. But who would be willing to come to school and practice and perform? AH-HA!! Tim figured he could talk a friend into playing the songs into a tape recorder. Well, he couldn't stop at that and ended up making a full blown recording with complete instrumentation and vocals.
In April of 2006, Mr. Bedley passed out initial copies of his recording to all of his colleagues at Wildomar Elementary School. Soon after, more and more teachers wanted copies of his CD, so Tim decided to get the CD professionally duplicated and packaged and put it on CD Baby. Since then, Tim and his singing students have appeared in newspaper articles, TV News features, and The Costco Connection. Now, teachers and parents all over the nation are singing these very simple yet incredibly effective songs with their kids. Education will never be the same!
Singin' the Standards is a CD of songs for elementary school students.

Singin' the Standards is a CD recording that is STANDARDS BASED. Each and every song addresses different basic standards which apply to several grade levels (primarily grades 2 through 5.)

Singin’ the Standards contains very simple songs written to familiar, catchy tunes. Students master these songs after only a few listens. Kids will sing them over and over again in their heads and aloud.
Singin’ the Standards is not like other children’s CDs. These songs don’t have “fluff” lyrics. Each song cuts straight to the objective so kids can mentally access information as they complete assignments. Students don’t need to wade through line after line of needless song lyrics.
Singin’ the Standards is classroom tested. In fact, these songs have been recorded professionally because of the incredible effect the music was having on student performance and attitude in Tim's classroom. The magic was too powerful to keep a secret. Students love these songs and use them to improve academic performance. This CD makes your classroom come alive!
