Jack Hartmann's Hip-Hop to the Alphabet
(San Juan, Puerto Rico)
I teach English in Puerto Rico to K-2 Spanish speakers.
They beg for songs #3, 9 and 10 off this CD.
3 is the traditional alphabet song to a hip hop rhythm.
9 is letter sounds (I made my own classroom alphabet using pictures of the words he uses in the song).
10 is a vowel song that sings about the two sounds each vowel makes. I also made a chart with the pictures.
I incorporate whatever part of whichever song is relevant during our readings and even during oral communication.
