Learning the Alphabet Sounds Song
Here is my preschooler learning the sounds of the alphabet by singing along to the video of a classroom demonstration. We do also have the song on a cassette tape, but my daughter is especially thrilled to hear and see it on video. I scan briefly to the video on our TV. The video is quite old and a bit shaky, but it's fun for us to watch as we actually know one of the little girls who is prominently featured in many of the demonstrations. Only she isn't a little girl any more! She's a mom with children of her own!
My daughter isn't singing very loud in this recording, so I don't know how well you can hear her. Once she has the song completely memorized I will post a video of her singing it without any accompaniment.
After over 20 years of homeschooling my four children (ages 10 - adult), I'm down to just one student. Over the years I've had to be resourceful in how I taught my children, and I hope to share my ideas here with you. I'm not a flashy person, and not up on all the latest technology and marketing techniques, so you probably won't find me telling you "X Reasons to __________" or "X Ways to ________" or any guaranteed methods for learning. Each of my four children learned differently and I think you'll find that reflected in how I share what I do and how I teach. I hope you'll find some of my ideas helpful and will keep coming back to read about our Homeschooling Adventure!
