THE ALPHABET IN MY MOUTH

THE ALPHABET IN MY MOUTH
(Tune:  “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands”)

I’ve got the whole alphabet in my mouth,
I’ve got the whole alphabet in my mouth.
I’ve got the whole alphabet in my mouth
and I can read!
I’ve got A - /a/ /a/ in my mouth
I’ve got B - /b/ /b/ in my mouth
I’ve got C - /c/ /c/ in my mouth
And I can read!
I’ve got D….
I’ve got all the sounds in my mouth and I’m ready to read!
The children will LOVE making this book to go with the song.  First, take a close up digital photo of each child with their mouth wide open.  Enlarge the picture and glue it to a sheet of paper.  Next, cut letters out of construction paper and glue to the tongue on their picture.  Write words for each page to go with the picture, such as “I’ve got D /d//d/ in my mouth.”
Hint!  If you don’t have 26 students, then use the principal, secretary, custodian, etc. to complete the letters in the alphabet.

  1. I love this idea. Thanks for sharing. I'll add it to the many classroom books that we make - enough that everyone gets at least two as souvenirs at the end of the year.
