Teaching Kids the Alphabet Through Music
Teaching the alphabet through music is a fantastic idea and you may want to find and or make your own resources to do this.
So How Do You Make Learning The Alphabet Letters Fun?
Here are some fun ideas for making learning the alphabet fun!
- Create foam letters to hold up as the kids sing the alphabet song.
- Teach different versions of the alphabet song. For example you may want to teach the Sesame Street alphabet song or the phonics alphabet song. These are two popular alphabet songs for teaching the sounds of each letter.
- Create a simple letter box, where the you post Upper case letters into one box and Lower case letters into another.
- Maybe even explore the alphabet while baking or when using play-dough. You can find a fantastic play-doh recipe here for creating different letters with the kids.
- You might want to buy an Alphabet book to read to the kids at mat time or at home alongside your singing session. One of my favourite books is Alphabet Animals At Bedtime by Aaron Adams
