My Students BEG For This!

I just found Have Fun Teaching videos this summer. I have to go to to convert them to mp4s so that I can play them at school (since YouTube is blocked content at my school), but my students LOVE the videos, especially this one. It is great to differentiate as well because it talks about consonants and vowels (which some are ready for), identifies and also gives the sounds. My student's letter sound knowledge is increasing rapidly (I think due to the addition of this short video to my beginning of the year alphastudy). Check it out!


  1. My kids love them too. We have been using them for over a year now. The y LOVE the videos. It is so funny how they move to them. I love the way they teach them about the vowel and consonants.

  2. Oh my gosh - I love this!!!! Love how they make the sound for each...perfect review for my firsties. How do I convert? Youtube is blocked at my school too.


  3. I used their videos all the time last year in kindergarten! I love them!

  4. I've just started using them this year, too. My students LOVE the ones we've done so far. I hope they release more of the sight word videos as well!

  5. When do you play this song and what else do you do in your alphastudy? I love this video and can't wait to use it on my new donorschoose projector!

  6. I used this video in my class this week and my kids flipped out for it! They LOVE it!!! Even my IA was humming the song later in the day.

  7. So glad everyone is enjoying this!
    Kristin, Sorry it took me so long to write back. I use these videos whenever my kids need a movement break. They can't sit for longer than 15 minutes at this point. I figure that it gets them up and moving, but it also is alphastudy at the same time!

  8. Thanks for posting the Alphabet Song video! If your school blocks YouTube videos, I have also posted the Alphabet Songs videos on, which most schools don't block. You can also support Have Fun Teaching by purchasing the Alphabet Songs DVD or USB here:
