This Ants on the apple a-a-a is a great chant to say every day to consolidate the initial sounds for our alphabet. There are three files - one with capitals, one with less color and one with just the chant.

  • Use Ants on the apple a-a-a as a PowerPoint on a PC, laptop or Smartboard.
  • As each slide is shown chant the rhyme together.
  • You can also encourage students to draw the letter in the air as they chant.
