Let's say the Alphabet!

Welcome back to More with Music!

I hope you had a great weekend (and hopefully a day off yesterday for MLK day!).

I've been going through my library of songs and discovered several I have yet to share.
Today I want to share one of those songs called, "Let's say the alphabet".

This song is different from the usual ABC song that we all sing.  (Phew, right?!?)
"Let's say the alphabet," is a very simple song/chant which features a little bit of time between each letter.  I left time between each letter so teachers, therapists, and/or parents have time to visually show each letter and/or ask child to repeat or say each letter.  This could be used for a variety of academic and speech goals.

You can incorporate clapping hands or shaking maracas throughout the song.  I've tried it both ways and the students have fun either way.

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for another post next week!


  1. This could be used for a variety music of academic and speech goals.

  2. Thanks for your comment, Elizabeth! I totally agree! :) Many teachers I work with use this song with students for pronouncing each letter as well as pointing to/identifying each letter.
