Tips on helping a child sing the abcs when they keep missing one letter over and over? Lots of practice and listening to youtube, CDs, singing it to them/with them...

Does the child know the letter from other ways? The ABC song adorable as it is can be confusing and easily mis-sung. I had a little girl who thought Elmo was in it because of L M N O . But If the child recognises the letter in other ways then He'll be ok

I point to each letter as we are singing and sing much slower than the normal pace.

Purpose in singing the ABC song

What's your purpose? Its great if kids will be putting stuff in alphabetical order, but otherwise learning the abc song is not as useful as teaching the letters and sounds of all letters.

As kids become familiar with the individual letters, I would think they would be more attentive when singing the song and they will correct their mistakes.

JMHO.

I am a student teacher and last week I used the Leap Frog Letter Factory tape in my first lesson, short i sounds. The first graders and the teacher loved it. Most of the students in the class are way below grade level. I also have two students who are special needs. Majority of the students don't know any of their letters. The main teacher has decided to add the tape as a daily part of the phonics lesson plan.
