If there is one thing I know for sure, it’s that kindergarteners LOVE music. Turn on a song and you’ll instantly have 25 little heads bobbing as they sing along – whether they know the tune or not.
Adding an Alphabet song to our morning routine has been one of the best things for my class. We choose one of these alphabet videos to sing along to every morning, and I have seen how it has impacted my students’ growth in a positive way.
Why? Music gives the brain rhyme and rhythm which gives it cues to recall information with.
How many of us still break into song with Gwen Stefani whenever we think of spelling the word “bananas”?
I have gathered a list of our favorite alphabet songs for kindergarten. Even though we sing these repeatedly, my class never gets tired of them!
Watch the Letters Get Down
Watch the Letters Get Down is one of our FAVORITE alphabet videos! This is the alphabet song that I find myself singing as I prepare dinner or try to relax ????. It’s that catchy!
This letter sounds review video combines alphabet motions, visual and word cues, and a fun rhythm to help students learn the letter sounds.
Mr. B has a few other phonics songs and videos that are just as fun. You can transition from this alphabet song to his blends and digraphs songs later in the year and your students will love it!
Act Out the Alphabet
Act Out the Alphabet is another favorite alphabet song that combines music and movement. Really, any Jack Hartmann video is a winner in our book.
You can do the motions to this song sitting down or get up and dance it out!
Alphabet Song by Have Fun Teaching
I don’t know what it is about this alphabet review song, but my students always feel SO cool singing it. ????
Have Fun Teaching also has individual letter videos that would be a good companion to this song when you focus on a letter a day.
Animal Alphabet Move and Grove
I told you, we are big fans of all things Jack Hartmann. This alphabet song is fun because it gives an animal name for each letter.
It also gets kids up and moving and grooving so they get the kinesthetic connection as well.
What Do The Letters Say?
This is another alphabet song that you won’t be able to get out of your head. What Do the Letters Say? is a letter sounds parody of What Does the Fox Say? and it’s as entertaining as you might imagine.
Whether your students know the original song or not, I can guarantee they will love this fun letter sounds video!
