C is for cat
10 November 2008Add to My Folder
Have fun with the letter ‘c’ in the final part of our mini series on letter sounds and shapes, which we’re sure you’ll enjoy in the run up to c-c-c-Christmas!
Written for his recently published Playing with Sounds and Letters, Tim Harding’s catchy songs make learning about letter sounds a fun and memorable experience. Rhythm, rhyme and alliteration are integral to all the songs, so while you are introducing letter sounds, you will also be reinforcing the foundation skills of Letters and Sounds Phase 1.
Who do you know that starts with ‘c’?
This song offers a personalised way to think about and practise initial letter sounds. It is ideal for using alongside this month’s interactive activities to reinforce the letter ‘c’. The simple question-and-answer style allows the children to repeat the letter sound and respond together with four names.
This version of the song leaves a gap for you to say the letter sound and add your own names, making the song personal to the children.
For example, it might sound like this:
*‘c c c c’, who do you know that starts with ‘c’?
