Teachers and reading specialists have guided us to say the letter sound before the word for your children to hear the initial letter sound starting the word. Our only exception is the using the word fox with the letter x, because the x in fox accurately makes the (ks – sound). Actively participating in this song daily will help your class achieve the Common Core and national standard of learning one to one letter sound correspondence.
I love these videos the songs teaches the letters with both sounds , with the right writing formation of each letter and rhyming words with a hip beat. I also use sand or salt writing trays for each students. I was able to teach the whole alphabet in 26 days. The average times I played the video was 3 times during a class session due to requests from my students they love the songs.
