Alliterative Song for Teaching Letter Sounds
Nancy Schimmel and Fran Avni
This song is also performed on Fran Avni's I'm All Ears: Sing Into Reading.
This song introduces students to the concept of alliteration. If "alliteration" sounds like too long a word for young children, remember that they easily master "tyrannosaurus.
I love munching muffins.
Make me muffins for my lunch,
Please, O please and thanks a bunch.
When the first sounds sound alike
As in Betsy bought a bike,
Or Steve's still standing at the station,
We call that alliteration.
I stop when I hear snakesound.
Stay right still, leave me alone,
I only speak to snakes by phone.
Shortly we'll be shushing.
Shut the sheep in the shearing shed,
Take the shaggiest one to bed.
