Sing the Letters
Hear What They Say!


Sing the ABC song anywhere, loudly, softly, and in silly voices!

Tip: Say the letters “L” “M” “N” “O” “P” slowly and clearly. 



Sing the ABCs using the sound each letter makes instead of the letter names themselves.

Tip: Ask what letter your child hears at the beginning of common words like table, door, and chair.


Sing the ABCs while pointing out things that start with each letter.

Tip: You can also try learning the ABC song in another language or try singing it backwards!
