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 to use at the beginning of the year.
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!
This goes to the best parody "What does the fox say?" Fun to do with fox masks!
Great gross motor activity using visual letter, letter name, sound, then the student makes a connection with a word.
Great fun rap with a different beat!
