Title – Alphabet Soup
By – Rosemary Shaw
Primary Subject – Music
Secondary Subjects – Language Arts
Grade Level – Kindergarten
MATERIALS: Magnetic letters and magnetic board. In my school the chalkboard is magnetic, so I draw a huge soup pot on the board before introducing this song.
OBJECTIVE: Students will sing responses in the song and bring their letter(s) to the board when asked for during the song.
1. Sing the song for the children (to the tune of “Hot Cross Buns”)
Alphabet Soup (Alphabet Soup)
In a pot. (In a pot)
You stir the letters up and then
You boil it ’til it’s good and done.
Who’s got the “A”? (We’ve got the “A”)
2. When students can sing the responses accurately, pass out the 26 alphabet letters. Some students may have more than one.
3. As each letter is called for in the song, the student holding that letter will place it on the magnetic board.
