Phonemic awareness songs are one of the best ways to give students fun and engaging practice with phonemic awareness. Without a solid basis of phonemic awareness, students will struggle to master reading and spelling skills. Here are 5 of my favorite phonemic awareness songs!
Phonemic Awareness Songs #1: Let’s Make Words by Jack Hartmann
I think Jack Hartmann is one of the greatest finds for teachers of young students. He has a great variety of songs that work for anything from an academic lesson to a brain break!
Phonemic Awareness Songs #2- Apples & Bananas by The Learning Station.
I sang this with my Kindergarten and First grade students long before the age of showing a video on a large display board came about. It’s fun, it’s catchy and it’s educational!
As great as The Learning Station is, there is another version that my students are loving EVEN MORE! The YouTube channel Gracie’s Corner started in 2020. She has a fantastic Apples & Bananas. The channel doesn’t allow embedding but make sure you check it out!
Phonemic Awareness Songs #3- Clap it Out by Blazer Fresh
When I found Blazer Fresh on GoNoodle I was ecstatic! My students have always loved these songs!
Phonemic Awareness Songs #4- Make a Rhyme, Make a Move by Jack Hartmann
Do you ever wonder if there is such a thing as too much Jack Hartmann?
Phonemic Awareness Songs #5- Segmenting Phonemes
One of the things I like about this song is the body movements! It is a fantastic way to get the whole body engaged in learning. This could be a great brain break!
