Please Note: This product does NOT include the Secret Stories®, as the Secrets are only available in "hard copy" / published format in the Secret Stories® Kit (book, posters & music download) on https://www.TheSecretStories.com.
The Secret Stories® Better Alphabet™ Song is the FASTEST way to learn the individual letters and sounds, using muscle memory to accelerate mastery in as little as 2 weeks for preK and kindergartners. This product contains three video versions of the Better Alphabet™ Song, with sound anchors from the Better Alphabet™ Anchors and/or Digital "Mini-Mats" highlighted as the sounds are being sung. This ensures that kids "SEE what they SING, and SING what they SEE," so as to strengthen sound/symbol connections in the brain! (For more information about the Better Alphabet™ Song and the "Secrets" to how it works, check out this video on Youtube!)
The video version of the Better Alphabet® Song is a lifesaver for remote teaching / online learning lessons, as well as at-home student practice. This digital product may be used in both live and recorded class lessons, as well as shared with students in your classroom. It may NOT be shared with any students outside of your own personal classroom OR posted publicly where it may be accessed by anyone outside your classroom. (One license, per classroom use.)
This product includes THREE different video versions of the Secret Stories® Better Alphabet™ Sing song (as described below) as well as a "information overview video" by Katie Garner, explaining best use to to fast-track individual letter-sound mastery.
- The "Original" Secret Stories® Better Alphabet Song® with Katie Garner, creator of Secret Stories®, singing/modeling all of the letter sounds, as well as the action cues for the Superhero Vowels® and their "short & lazy" sounds. Katie appears alongside the letters as they are being sung so as to simultaneously reinforce the "sound/symbol" connections in the brain.
- The "Original" Secret Stories® Better Alphabet Song® but with "full-screen" focus on the letter anchors as each sound is sung, so as to prioritize the "sound/symbol" connections for reading and writing.
- Bonus video of Jack Hartmann's version of the Better Alphabet™ Song, but with a little twist! (Think of the "original" version as what builds the reading muscles, and Jack's version as a way to "exercise" them!) Like the "original" versions above, this also provides "full-screen" focus on the letter anchors as they are sung to prioritize the "sound/symbol" connections for reading and writing.
A Note to Teachers Using Secret Stories®:
If you are already using the Secret Stories®, the Better Alphabet™ Song audio track is included with your kit as part of the "Brainteaser-Blending" Musical Download. While this video is a lifeline for remote teaching / distance learning lessons, when teaching in-person lessons in the traditional classroom, it is strongly recommended that you reference the physical alphabet anchors on the wall (while singing) so that students know where to find them for independent reading and writing!
