DITTIES TO TEACH

Sometimes putting words to familiar songs is an easier way to teach children how to spell their name or learn their phone number. Here are a couple of ditties I came up with to teach my daughter many years ago (she’s now a freshman in college!)

SPELL YOU NAME

(Tune: B-I-N-G-O) 
I know a girl who likes to swing (or any favorite activity) 
And Emily is her name-o 
E-M-I-L-Y 
E-M-I-L-Y 
E-M-I-L-Y 
And Emily is her name-o. 
(We have a different tune for 9 letter names)

TELEPHONE NUMBER

(Tune: Are you Sleeping?)
     763 (kids echo 763)

498    (498)

8938   (8938)

763-498-8938

We’ve come to a point in time where we need to include the area code.
