Try some of these ideas in the classroom or at home!
- This song is meant for students who are already familiar with their ABCs. With this song, they can have fun revisiting the alphabet in a new way, and it helps to reinforce their knowledge of the ABCs.
- It is helpful for students to hear the same information in a new context – it helps them better understand the content, and can help teachers identify where students may need extra support.
- For a fun activity, print out alphabet flashcards and put them on the board in order. Pick a student to come to the front of the class and have them point to each letter as everyone sings the song. This version has super fun music so let them have fun with the movements as they point and sing. You can even make a jazzy pointer stick with colorful stickers and ribbons for them to use to point to each letter.
