ABC Song Video from KidsTV123

This is the classic ABC song that many of us know.  Here it is with visuals of the alphabet which I think is the best way to sing this song.  Some children can sing the song, but when it gets to “l, m, n, o, p” then they get mixed up because that part of the song goes so fast. They might not know the letters or realize that section contains five separate lettersl

This video of the song is great because it incorporates auditory and visual senses together.  The children are seeing each letter as they sing it, and hopefully they will put the auditory name with the visual letter.

 


New WordWorld eBook Library

The new eBook library from WordWorld has five great, fun, and educational stories for children.  Linda Labbo, Professor of Language and Literacy Education at the University of Georgia, has great things to say about these books.  She says, “Words come to life on screens in unique ways that invite children to interact with stories, characters, and language. The interactivity scaffolds children’s attention and provides age appropriate prompts that ensure an entertaining and educational experience.”   Scaffolding is very important in the learning process, and WordWorld utilizes that specialized teaching strategy.

In my opinion as an educator, I think Word World is one of the very best children’s educational programming available. The literacy lessons presented in the WordWorld television series are extended in the eBooks.  Kids can either read these eBooks on their own, have someone read to them, or have the stories read to them by the eBook narrator.  A Guide providing strategies is also available to maximize learning.

These are the five eBooks:

  • A Smile for Crocodile
  • Duck’s First Sleepover
  • Snug as a Bug
  • The Big Race
  • Totally Terrific Duck
