Skills – beginning sound deletion
Miguel makes phonological awareness fun by making
the beginning sound disappear to make a new word. It’s
a fun discovery for children. Try other words in Miguel 2.
Use visuals and props (i.e., a monkey puppet, magic
wand, etc. on abracadabra everyone can reach out their
arms and wiggle them back towards themselves and sing
abracadabra together.) Teachers can take away the beginning letter as we sing "dissappear".
Miguel the Magic Monkey makes sounds disappear
Miguel the Magic Monkey just listen and you’ll hear
The children say Miguel, Miguel do some magic like you do.
Then he goes abracadabra, abracadabra, abracadabra,-do
And makes the m disappear
And you’ve got ice
He takes a word like cold
And makes the c disappear
And then you’ve got old
He takes a word like pants
And makes the p disappear
And then you’ve got ants
Then he takes a word like farm
And makes the f disappear
And then you’ve got arm
Then he takes a word like hand
And makes the h disappear
And then you’ve got and
Then he takes a word like bus
And makes the b disappear
And you’ve got us
