I really do keep singing “la, la, la” — the downside of writing a catchy song! Hopefully it will stick with my students the way it has stuck with me. It’s a simple song meant to get kids singing, but more importantly, to get them singing (and saying) specific sounds.
I used all kinds of consonants throughout the song, but the idea is that they can be changed to accommodate a child’s unique and specific speech goals. I wrote a greeting song a few years back that followed the same model, and was able to adapt it for use with many of my students throughout the years. I’m thinking I can do the same with this one.
