I love these videos the songs teaches the letters with both sounds , with the right writing formation of each letter and rhyming words with a hip beat. I also use sand or salt writing trays for each students. I was able to teach the whole alphabet in 26 days. The average times I played the video was 3 times during a class session due to requests from my students they love the songs.
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Trees,- Ha! I think they used toilet paper tubes and stick-one letters, but you could also ask them to write the letters on using different colored markers. Maybe two colors for vowels vs. consonants, or different colors for uppercase and lowercase!!!
