These songs are great for teaching letters and their sounds! Gross motor skills are developed as the kiddos dance and sing! Plus! It’s a lot of fun!
The use of music and songs has transformed learning in kindergarten. The visual along with the songs helps students learn more effectively than in the past. Here are the best songs I have found that help with learning letters and sounds. Check out how we use movement to learn the alphabet, Fun Ways to Teach Letters and Sounds.
1. The Apple apple Song with Hand Motions – Barbara Milne
This great song has capital and lower case letters. It provides students with hand signals. When the students create their own hand signals and/or provide different words to go with sounds, learning expands to a whole new level.
This song goes through the capital letters, lower case letters and then the sounds! It is usually requested by the students each day! It is fast and has a catchy tune! Kiddos love it!
Yep! Once again I LOVE Jack Hartmann videos. In this video he really emphasizes the letter name and the sounds which helps beginning readers! I also talk about ASL and we use a few sings for classroom management.
A fun rap version that focuses more on the sounds than the letter names. The sounds are clipped so it really helps with spelling!
Great gross motor activity using visual letter, letter name, sound, then the student makes a connection with a word.
