Phonics - Monster Alphabet Chanting
Teachers typically Print out this Power Point Presentation and laminate the cards. Place the cards on the chalkboard and give two students flyswatters. The teacher will make a monster sound representing the phonetic sound of the letter. The student that swats the letter first gives their team a point.
You can purchase the monster letter video that goes with this PPT. I usually have the students practice with the video before I have the students play the game.
The students will learn the sounds and letters of the alphabet leading to skills of spelling and reading.
Early childhood, kindergarten, first grade, and ESL students can gain the basic skills and knowledge of phonetic sounds of the alphabet. The students will chant the fun sounds monsters make. If you purchase the PPT, your students can swat the monsters as you make the monster phonetic sound. The charts and videos expose the children to auditory, visual and kinesthetic inputs to the learning process involved in acquiring knowledge of letters and sounds.
The saying of the sound is a particularly important aspect of the learning process. It imparts a muscular memory of the sound and reinforces the visual and auditory memories.Children chant the names of the letters of the alphabet, text with words beginning with the letter, and the basic sounds of the letters.
Children enjoy the funny texts and the cartoon animals that perform the actions of the alphabet text. The pleasing visual presentation enhances the learning experience and helps the children to master the visual and auditory aspects of the alphabet.
There are 26 monster letters covering all the letters of the alphabet. Different colored monsters in the form of letters are used to draw the children’s attention to different phonic sounds.
