I am a first year teacher so I love to use songs and chants during downtime to distract from negative behavior during times when the kids are transitioning.
The Phonics Dance is AWESOME!!!! I've met many who have never heard of it, but it is a song that goes with each letter of the alphabet and even has cute little/simple dance moves. The kids ADORE it and I have really noticed it helps them when trying to dictact a letter sound. I catch them singing the song to figure it out
Here is a video with the song.. http://cumberland.wikispaces.com/Phonics+Dance
It seems overwhelming, but I have been gradually teaching each letter. For example, I teach them the chant to the letter when I teach that letter. So far, this is what we have learned, A,B,C,D,E,I,M,R,S. I have mini pictures to go along with each chant and I just put them on a binder ring and carry them with me everywhere and flip through them as we go so they visually see the letter with the chant. I do it anytime we have downtime. We do it a bit faster than the video posted here, so it takes less time
You can buy any of the products on their site, thephonicsdance.com too!!
