Happy Anniversary!

Devon singing the bath song

So what are we celebrating? This week marks the 5th anniversary of our first YouTube video! Did you guess correctly? On September 8, 2006, we uploaded a video of Teaching Tips for “The Bath Song”, that features Devon, Tanja, and Jeremy-sensei demonstrating how to wash your hair, feet, knees and nose among other body parts.

When we started making videos for YouTube, our hope was to help parents and teachers who were using our Super Simple Songs CDs in the classroom and at home. We NEVER thought that these videos would eventually lead us to communicate with so many teachers, parents, and children from around the world.  This month, we will reach another huge YouTube milestone when we pass a quarter of a billion views! Wow! Thank you so much for watching and for sharing Super Simple Songs with your friends.

In honor of our anniversary, we are going to celebrate YouTube style with some fresh new videos!

    • Monday, 9/5 we revisit the video that started it all with “The Bath Song.” Get out your soap!
    • Wednesday, 9/7 don’t miss the much anticipated return of Jeremy-sensei in “Seven Steps.”
    • Thursday, 9/8 check out “Super Simple ABCs Phonics Fun: R-Z.” It’s the final video in the Phonics Fun Series.

and ending the week in a big way…

  • Friday, 9/9 we will unveil a brand new animated version of the classic song “B-I-N-G-O.”

It’s going to be a great week!

And the winner’s are:

Thank you to everyone who entered our guessing contest!  It’s been so fun to read all of your comments. We’ve selected two lucky winners. We had two people guess correctly that this is the 5th anniversary of our YouTube account. Congratulations to Julie Obeid, who we randomly selected as the winner. From reading her comments, I think she’ll be very excited. But because Laurence Philippart was the only other person who  guessed correctly, they will be receiving a prize as well. The second winner, selected from everyone who guessed, whether it was right or wrong, is Núria.

How did we pick the winners? Well, first we assigned the two people who had the right answer a number and then used random.org to pick the winner. Then, we gave a number to everyone who guessed and went back to random.org to select winner number two.

Congratulations again to Julie and Núria! You’ll each be receiving a copy of Super Simple Songs 1, 2, 3 and the Animals CD! And Laurence will get a free download of their choice for guessing correctly.

Thank you all for your support and for an amazing five years of YouTube. We’re looking forward to many more years to come!
