Alphabet Songs!

 ** Nothing to do with crafting here, but I know a lot of my crafting buddies have little people!!**

Now that school is out for the summer, it looks like I'll be tutoring again! My first student is a kindergartener who needs some help with letter recognition and letter sounds. Man, I was so excited yesterday when I found these awesome Alphabet Songs on Have Fun Teaching! The songs are catchy and have music that I think grown ups should enjoy while dancing and singing with their children. (One song really reminds me of a Justin Bieber tune...) Now, I read a bunch of folks on YT complaining that the songs are repetitive, and I wondered who these folks were. Clearly, they've never taught a child anything worthwhile. I mean, I can remember taping songs from the radio and rewinding over and over until I learned the words. It works!! Wanna hear one? Here's the T video since my name starts with that letter! :D




I am a fan! My student and I may alternate watching these alphabet songs and counting videos on the computer and on the tv, and I think they'd be awesome on a smartboard... You can watch with your little people on YT, on Have Fun Teaching, or on a DVD, which you can order from havefunteaching.com. They even have CDs!


*I did receive a free download of the videos for this review, but I really do love these!!

  2. cool, that is a great teaching tool and I agree repetition is key. When I was in college I found that if I took notes in class then rewrote them at home I retained more of what I had learnt. So happy for you that you have a student, wtg Trina
