This week we are learning about the letter Mm. I really love teaching phonics! This week we will be watching and singing along to the Letter M song by Have Fun Teaching. We will watch and sing along every day this week! This is how one of my students learned the letters and sounds last year. I had to figure out how he learned best and singing and dancing to a short video every day helped.
Here is the song that I am talking about:
We also begin our week by watching Olive and the Rhyme Rescue Crew. This week's video is about letter M.
We only watch this at the beginning of the week and the kids LOVE this show. Each video is about 10 minutes long and focuses on a different letter and sound along with a rhyme.
We also love watching StoryBots. Here is their song for letter M.
The robots are cute!
At the end of the week, we do an activity by HooplaKidz to review the letter and sound. This video which has you click the answer and provides feedback, is on, you guessed it, letter M!!!!
This is just some of the ways we use YouTube in the classroom. It has really enhanced our phonics instruction. I would love to hear about some of the awesome videos you have found to use in your classroom to enhance instruction. Leave me a comment about it. I'm always looking for new ideas.
