Song Activities for Preschool & Kindergarten: Alphabet, Sight Words, Science & More

Activities for teaching braille and other concepts through songs and videos.

Teachers working with young students often incorporate fun songs and videos to reinforce concepts. Students who are visually impaired typically love music, especially music with a strong beat. Recently, I began looking for simple songs and/or videos with songs that reinforce preschool and kindergarten goals such as learning letters in the alphabet, phonetics and sight words. Have Fun Teaching has numerous free, energizing song videos that cover a wide range of topics geared for preschool and kindergarten students. There are song videos for each letter in the alphabet, for each common sight word, and on various topics such as counting, shapes, science, etc. Let’s take a look at a couple of these videos!

The Letter A video is a phonics and ABC song with an invigorating beat.
