Ff
Alphabet Song for the Letter "F"
Greg Whitfield

    
This song is available on AlphaSongs.

F is a letter that's fun to say, and it's easy! As the song instructs, put your bottom lip on your front top teeth and blow. Discuss with your child how /f/ is a sound that doesn't use their voice, only air. (The voiced version of F is V.)

Think of words that contain the sound of F. Listen for where this sound occurs - in the initial position (french fried frogs), in the medial position (waffle), or in the final position (off and sniff). Hand mirrors are useful tools to help determine this.

As a follow-up activity, cut 3 strips of construction paper, about 3 or 4 inches wide and in three different lengths. Discuss the terms "shortest" and "longest" and the concept of small, medium and large. Glue the strips together to make a giant-sized upper-case F (longest vertical, medium length on top, shortest in the middle). Use this to search for words containing letter F,and write/copy the words on the F.

For extended thinking, discuss how the ph phonogram makes the /f/ sound. Most kids think this is silly, and I agree! 


F is a letter that's fun to say
The sound it makes is at the end of its name
Put your bottom lip on your front top teeth
And blow to make the F sound along with me

/f/ /f/ /f/, french fried frogs
/f/ /f/ /f/, furry fat dogs
/f/ /f/ /f/, fingers and feet
F is a letter that can't be beat

Fiddle and fox both start with F
Numbers four and five do too
F's at the end of off and sniff
And right in the middle of waffle, too

/f/ /f/ /f/, french fried frogs
/f/ /f/ /f/, furry fat dogs
/f/ /f/ /f/, fingers and feet
F is a letter that can't be beat
F is a letter that can't be beat
