Alphabet Action Songs
By Denise Gagne; illustrated by Erin Bourne 
32 pages

These songs will have you moving to the beat while you learn the letters of the alphabet. For each letter, a phonics song (featuring a familiar melody) and an action song are given. The phonics songs for consonants each have the same melody so that they are easily learned; the accompaniment changes to reflect the character represented by each letter. The phonics songs for long vowel sounds use one melody, with a different melody for short vowel sounds. The action songs use a variety of melodies and musical styles, to give children a wide range of musical experiences. The 2 included CD's feature vocal performances for you to learn the songs and accompaniment (karaoke) tracks for the action songs so you can perform them. The melody line and lyrics are included for each letter's action song (phonics songs have lyrics only).

Great for teaching the alphabet! My Kindergartens love it!

I am a music teacher who also does some reading intervention with Kinders. I have some of these songs excerpted in my Musicplay for Kindergarten and thought the rest of the songs would be beneficial.
