I have put together an entire blog dedicated to teaching the letter S using songs. So if you are needing ideas for letter S songs, crafts books and snacks keep scrolling!

What are the Benefits of Using Songs to Teach Letters?


Music is an amazing tool that I love using to teach. Children learn songs so quickly and music makes learning fun.

Here is a list of benefits to using songs to teach letters:

Improves Listening Skills

Listening to the song carefully will teach children to be better listeners. A tip to help encourage them to listen to the song is to close their eyes, sit criss cross and hold their hands in their lap.

When kids are listening intently to the song and having fun, they can learn so much.

Helps with Pronunciation

The rhythm of music is great for teaching children proper pronunciation. The constant repeating sounds in music is great for learning the repeating sounds of English.

Creates a Fun Learning Environment

It’s no secret that children love moving and grooving to music. Music cultivates a fun learning environment for children.

Music allows children to experience a multisensory and helps assist with cognitive development.

Helps with Memory

Recalling a song that your toddler has been trying to memorize is great for memory. It is truly amazing how quickly children can remember songs.

Why is learning Letters Important?


Learning letters is so important for young children. The better they understand letter, the sounds they make and their functions the better readers they will be.

Letters are the foundation to reading.

Increased Reading Fluency

Because the foundation of reading is letters, knowing the sounds and functions of letters will make increases the fluency of young readers.

Having the ability to sound out words that are unfamiliar is an important skill to have and it all starts with learning letters.

Develops Confident Readers

Knowing letters helps to develop confident readers. When children are more aware of the functionality of letters, they will be more confident in their reading skills.

It can be so discouraging for children to have trouble reading. The foundation for confident readers starts with letters.

Develops Recognition Skills

Once your child starts to recognize letters, they will see them everywhere. Not only will they start recognizing letters they will recognize other things more quickly like shapes and colors!

Tips for Introducing Songs with The Letter S

Introducing new songs to kiddos is so much fun, but it can be challenging too. Kiddo’s might get overwhelmed with too many songs at once, so here are my top tips for introducing letter S songs to children.

  • Introduce 1 song at a time
  • Listen to the song a few times
  • Pass an object around to the beat of the music
  • Sing the words to the song and have them repeat
  • Create movements that go along with the song
