Just about every letter of the alphabet has a song or poem to go along with it. Sing the song or read the poem to your child, teach them how to sing it and you may be able to make up a song or impromptu dance. Think of other songs or poems that you can use to teach the alphabet!z

Z is for Zoo

I know that there are dragons,
St. George’s, Jason’s, too,
And many modern dragons
With scales of green and blue;

But though I’ve been there many times
And carefully looked through,
I can’t find a dragon
In the cages at the zoo!

WEE WILLIE WINKIE

Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town,
Upstairs and downstairs, in his nightgown;
Rapping at the window, crying through the lock,
“Are the children in their beds? Now it’s eight o’clock.”

W is for Winter

WINTER

Cold and raw the north wind doth blow,
Bleak in the morning early;
All the hills are covered with snow,
And winter’s now come fairly.

FROLIC IN THE SNOW.

“See the snow! see the snow!
Hear the winter wind blow;
Make the fire burn bright;
Shut the doors up tight;
Let it storm, let it storm;
My Willy shall be warm.”

“Dear mother, let me go
And frolic in the snow;
Tis so soft and so light,
So beautiful and white,
‘Twill not hurt me I know;
Let me go, let me go.”

“I don’t mind the cold;
I am three years old;
Look at little Rover;
He is powdered all over:
Let me go, let me go,
And frolic in the snow.”

“I can do what Rover can;
I am your little man;
Let it storm, let it storm;
I don’t want to be warm;
Dear mother, let me go,
And frolic in the snow.”

V is for Vest!

There was an Old Man of the West,
Who wore a pale plum-coloured vest;
When they said, “Does it fit?”
He replied, “Not a bit!”
That uneasy Old Man of the West.

Surprise – Pretend Play!

T is for Toad.

There was an Old Person of Rhodes,
Who strongly objected to toads;
He paid several cousins,
To catch them by dozens,
That futile Old Person of Rhodes.

T is for Tree

There was an Old Man of Dundee,
Who frequented the top of a tree;
When disturbed by the crows,
He abruptly arose,
And exclaimed, “I’ll return to Dundee.”

SIMPLE SIMON

Simple Simon met a pieman,
Going to the fair;
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
“Let me taste your ware.”

Says the pieman to Simple Simon,
“Show me first your penny,”
Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
“Indeed, I have not any.”

Simple Simon went a-fishing
For to catch a whale;
All the water he could find
Was in his mother’s pail!

Simple Simon went to look
If plums grew on a thistle;
He pricked his fingers very much,
Which made poor Simon whistle.

He went to catch a dicky bird,
And thought he could not fail,
Because he had a little salt,
To put upon its tail.

He went for water with a sieve,
But soon it ran all through;
And now poor Simple Simon
Bids you all adieu.

S is for Sheep

Baa, Baa, Black Sheep

BAA, BAA, BLACK SHEEP

Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes, marry, have I,
Three bags full;

One for my master,
One for my dame,
But none for the little boy
Who cries in the lane.

Nothing but Ba-a!

Little Fanny and Lucy,
One sunshiny day,
Went to walk in the meadow
And have some play.

They said to a sheep,
“Pray how’s your mamma?”
But the lazy sheep answered
Them nothing but “ba-a!”

S is for Song

DING DONG! DING DONG!

Ding dong! ding dong!
I’ll sing you a song;
‘Tis about a little bird;

He sat upon a tree,
And he sang to me,
And I never spoke a word.

Ding dong! ding dong!
I’ll sing you a song;
‘Tis about a little mouse;
He looked very cunning,
As I saw him running
About my father’s house.

Ding dong! ding dong!
I’ll sing you a song
About my little Kitty;
She’s speckled all over,
And I know you’ll love her,
For she is very pretty.

Ding dong! ding dong!
I have sung my song;
Now give me a little kiss;
I’ll sing you another,
Some time or other,
That is prettier than this.
