Play to Learn: Musical Alphabet Game for Preschool


Reviewing the alphabet and teaching letter sounds can get tedious if you are always doing it the same way. I am always trying to come up with new ways to keep learning fun, active and relevant for my preschooler.

My daughter enjoys games and she loves to sing and dance so I knew she would have a great time playing MUSICAL ALPHABET (similar to Musical Chairs) and it would be a fun way to practice letter recognition and test her phonological awareness of the corresponding letter sounds.


It's a quick & easy,  no fuss game - which are my favorite! If it doesn't require a lot of prep or materials, then we are more likely find time to play. Here's how we play -

1.  Write the letters of the alphabet on large index cards, card stock or construction paper.
2. Arrange them in a large circle on the floor, in mixed up order.
3. Turn on some music and have child dance around the circle.


4. When the music stops, child must stop. Child must identify the letter they stopped near, provide the sound it makes and share at least one word that begins with that sound.
5. Continue until all letters and sounds have been reviewed.

I even got the Oldest Diva involved in the game. She was in charge of the music and she also monitored the Littlest Diva's responses. She enjoyed being in a position of authority.  The Littlest Diva had a blast dancing around and playing.

I LOVE when you can sneak in some learning like this and they don't even realize they are actually learning while playing.  :)

This can easily be played in small groups & adapted to a school setting.

Have fun practicing the alphabet!

  5. I have a song we sing for this game. "We're marching around the alphabet, around the alphabet. We're passing letters from ABC all the way to XYZ. We're marching around the alphabet, around the alphabet. Where we stop, nobody knows until the whistle blows. WOOOOO!" Then they stop and identify the letter, sound, word that begins with, a fruit that begins with it, etc. I can't remember where I got this song, maybe a CD from years ago? Anyone else know it?

  17. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important. best gaming chairs reddit

  18. Not an industry I work in per se, but I used to be in a sales role. One of my customers was a milk bottling plant. I was somewhat surprised that they were putting the exact same milk in both organic and non-organic cartons. Turns out all of their milk is organic, but in order to not miss out on the sales of non-organic milk, they just bottle them differently and sell them at different prices.
