Letter sound song - WWYD?
I LOVE Bounce Patrols youtube videos on the letter sounds. They're short, simple, fun, and one of my favorite letter sound channels. Mostly because the songs are so simple it doesn't confuse the kids. It's a person dancing, and saying the letter sound. That's basically it. No distracting graphics, loud background music, or a bunch of extras.

My kids are learning a new letter today and I pulled up the letter M song, only to find that instead of saying the /m/ sound correctly, they do the whole song saying /muh/ for the letter sound.

UGHH. Last year I missed the beginning letters so never saw this before and now I'm annoyed. Still debating playing it, and just teaching the kids the correct way after. I like consistency with my songs that I play to help with routine. WWYD?

Songs are catchy; unfortunately, they'll probably remember the "wrong" pronunciation more than the corrected one.

I wouldn’t play it. Do something else for m. Explain the song is wrong so you are doing something different for m. Totally not a big deal imo.

I concur. Don't use it.
