    Hi does anyone know a fast paced ( but easy to sing along to) alphabet song to use during my L and s lessons? Although the ones I find on you tube are either american or too slow!
    Many thanks
  2. When I was in year 1 the children enjoyed singing along to this . . . http://learnenglishkids.britishcouncil.org/en/songs/the-alphabet-song
  3. That's just the one I was going to recommend - the children love it
  4. I use the tune of 'Girls and Boys come out to play' - phonics advisor from county suggested it. Once I had the tune in my head and which letters for each line it works really well. We sing it twice through.

    vee w x y z (the v is long to keep to the beat)

    how many birds are in the tree?
    how many cats are in the den?
    how many lions are in the zoo?
    how many teddies are in my bed?
  7. I love the British council alphabet song!
  8. I use one of the sing-up ones - my classes love having the backing track to wiggle along to!

    I use this one with my grade 1/2 majority EAL class in Germany and they absolutely love it_
    They pick it up really quickly and it really made a difference to the learning compared to previous years.

    Try sing up on the Internet. Great for loads of songs. Split into sections by subject etc. It's free to register.
