Cut giant letters out of heavy paper or poster board and let children decorate them with glitter, stickers, fake jewels, etc.  Punch a hole in each letter and tie on a piece of string so it an be worn around the neck.  Children can wear these when you sing alphabet songs and then break dance when the letter that they are wearing comes up in the song.
Hint!  You could let children decorate the letter that their name begins with or just let everyone in the class choose a different letter.

Here are some songs that would fun to sing with the necklaces:
