Sing a Song

Alphabet Monster

I'm the Alphabet Monster
And nothing tastes better
To the Alphabet Monster
Than eating every letter.
A "j" and an "a"
And a "c" and a "k"
And the million more letters
I munch every day.
I'm hungry now.
What shall I do?
I think I'll eat a "y,” an "o," and a "u"
. . . . . . that means YOU!


Sesame Street: Sing the Alphabet Song!

Try This

Write out each letter of the alphabet. Cut them out in squares and tape them around the house. Call out a letter for your child to find until they are all gone! You can also have your child find the letter on everyday objects around the house. This helps with letter recognition, an early step towards literacy.
