Dance the ABCs - ABC Song

It's an ABC song with colors and phonics.This song was written and performed by A.J. Jenkins.

We are now starting to learn Phase 4 phonics.

This involves learning to blend and segment longer and compound words often known as CVCC, CCVC words etc. At this point it is important that the children learn the 5 vowel sounds and know that the other letters are called consonants.

They will be learning to blend adjacent consonants together e.g. 'mp' 'nt' 'nd'  etc. at the beginning and end of words e.g. lamp, bent, land, grin.

Subitize Super Fast | Subitize to 10 | Jack Hartmann

Subitize is the ability to tell the number of objects in a set, quickly, without counting. Subitize Super Fast through 10 is a fast paced subitizing song for a challenge. In this subitizing song name the numbers in each set of dots, ten frames and fingers. Subitizing develops math fluency, when students recognize sets without having to count each object and it helps develop number sense and the ability to perform mental math.
